We recently visited Kyle and the only place open was Hectors Bothy. We were seated by Rose a very sweet young lady. My husband and I tried both specials and they were very filling. He also had the local beer and enjoyed that as well....More

We were pleasantly surprised here. We had been out all day and knew that we wouldn't get a place to eat in Plockton without booking in advance. The food was lovely and plentiful - large helpings! The servers were friendly and up beat

Thanks Cameron for this review. You have been using the Bothy for the last 10 years without an issue. Unfortunately we have had a supplier issue with our new boxes which of course we are dealing with, as they are not up to usual standards....More

4 hillwalkers with big appetites have eaten here 3 times in the past 2 years and had great food and service. Pleasant staff and nothing to much bother.

Tired and a little bit hangry, we decided to give Hector's bothy a go. After tripping over the threshold, we were promptly seated, and placed our orders. The meals were reasonably priced, and generously portioned. Service was attentive and quick. We will stop here again.

We ate at your café and sat for quite a while on a Sunday as we waited for the train. Food and staff was great. You had some beautiful weavings on your wall. Is there a way that I could get in touch with the artist to see if they have any for sale?
