History

Cobbs are proud to say that we are a truly Highland company.

In 2002, we took over a farmhouse bakery in the Loch Ness-side village of Drumnadrochit. From there, we inherited a lovely range of traditional home-baked cakes which were already proving popular with customers throughout the Highlands of Scotland. Originally, production was just for our own Cobbs outlets but demand from other visitor attractions and coffee shops soon enabled the business to grow. We rapidly outgrew our original farm kitchen and now we're based in larger premises in the village. We still use many of the original recipes and are pleased that all our cakes are still home-baked but of course, nowadays, we're making them in much larger quantities.

The company has expanded rapidly over the last fifteen years and we now have four hotels, seventeen cafes and joint ownership of a brewery (as well as the bakery).

We take our name from John Cobb, who was a gentleman well known in the local area. He was a speedster who, in his boat: Crusader, attempted to break the World Water Speed Record on Loch Ness in 1952. Sadly, Cobb did not survive the attempt but his name proudly lives on through our business.
