Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier
Paradise for the chocoholic and a great day out! Everything produced by Iain Burnett is created in his specially designed chocolate kitchen in the picturesque village of Grandtully, on the banks of the River Tay in Highland Perthshire, 4 miles from the A9 on the A827. Follow the brown tourist road signs marked Highland Chocolatier. In the shop, feast your eyes on the range of handmade Velvet Truffles® and Pralines. Friendly, knowledgeable staff will help you choose from the impressive ranges displayed.

There is an informative Scottish Chocolate Centre housing a small multi-media exhibition, which is free. You will be welcomed in the adjoining Chocolate Lounge where the menu of cakes, small savoury snacks and drinks has an emphasis on chocolate, of course!
