Good To Go!

We are delighted to say we have been awarded our Good to Go badge! This is what Visit Scotland say about it:

“We want to share our beautiful country with everyone safely and responsibly, and that’s where our Good to Go scheme comes into play.

As you start to explore Scotland again, keep an eye out for the ‘We’re Good to Go’ logo which will show you tourism businesses who are working hard to adhere to government and public health guidance, and have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment to check they have everything in place to reopen safely. 

We’ve worked with Tourism Northern Ireland, VisitEngland and VisitWales to develop this new UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark to provide confidence for you, our visitors, as well as  communities and tourism businesses alike – as we work towards the future.

The places included in this scheme include some of your favourite spots to go or book when visiting Scotland. Look out for accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants and pubs, business conference and events venues, and tour and coach operators displaying the logo.

You can see the logo on VisitScotland business listings as you browse our website.

We look forward to welcoming you back to experience and enjoy all that our tourism businesses have to offer.

For just now, please follow the advice of the current phase from the Scottish Government, and read our outdoor guidelines before you set off.”

Announcement from Mackintosh at the Willow.


We’re happy to update you, that in line with government guidance and further clarification, our tearooms is still open to the public. We are closely monitoring the ongoing situation and will continue to act according to government guidelines.

Our tearooms opening hours remain the same, 12noon until 5pm.


We’ll continue to serve up delicious cakes, coffees and teas to anyone who wants to catch up safely with one other household (of up to 6 people) in a beautiful spacious environment. For now, we are not serving alcohol in the tearooms, much like Catherine Cranston in 1903 – who was a firm follower of the temperance movement!

If you don’t feel comfortable visiting, but still want to treat yourself to a delicious afternoon tea, keep an eye on further updates as our takeaway afternoon tea’s and celebration cakes are launching very, very soon.

As always, we have stringent measures in place to help protect you and our staff and you can view on our bookings page.

You can make a booking online on our reservations page, by emailing us or by giving the team a call on 0141 204 1903.

Thanks to everyone for their support over the past few months.  If you have any queries about a booking the best way to contact us is at
