I mistakenly rated the take out area of this eatery in a previous review! This place is located in an area just before one crosses the bridge to the Isle of Skye. I had expected "Fresh" fish when I ordered the "Fish and chips." Foolish me! It was overpriced for what I got, and while the young woman waiting tables... More

Good food, well cooked for affordable price. I remember the burger i had here was excellent, nothing to criticize. Big portion and tasty. Staff is very friendly and manages to do the job in a busy place well.

It was pouring with rain and Storm Barbara was settling in for the afternoon. We stopped to get something to eat before crossing the bridge over to The Isle of Skye. which we were informed was closed due to high winds - - fortunately this turned out to be misinformation! We sat in Hectors Bothy and ordered some paninis, club... More

Wow!! Walked in and got a lovely warm welcome, the food was just delicious (double cheeseburger and chips) although I resisted the cakes on display, but they looked amazing, hope they don't close for winter as I've just moved to the area and I hope to make this a regular stop, so I'd your visiting Kyle, and fancy some food...

a group of us popped in for some food the day before it closed for the winter season. The food was that great. The onion rings were either raw or over cooked and the burgers were pretty dry. The steaks that were ordered were not to a great standard. The service was a bit slow on the evening as well... More

We called in for a quick dinner on our stop over to the aisle of Skye, the staff were very friendly and welcoming & managed to get us a table without any hassle even though we hadn't booked. The fish was lovely & although the chips were slightly undercooked we enjoyed our meal, my husband particularly liked the selection of... More

We went here during a Scottish tour, and unfortunately this place was not the best. It was full, as there was a bit of a captive audience at mid afternoon. However, the quality of the food was poor. We had fish and chips. The fish was stodgy and more akin to something from a supermarket. Overall, it had a bit... More
