We had just done a cruise on the Loch and came across the Bothy, the food was amazing and they cater for coeliac's. it is reasonably priced and cater for children. Staff were very friendly and the service was good. All up a enjoyable meal.

On the outside the Bothy looks beautiful and when you walk in it is just as beautiful with the stone walls etc. The kids quickly ran in and jumped on the stools at the bar (which I realise they are not allowed to do) but before I could open my mouth the man behind the bar grumped at them to...

Fantastic pub and a restaurant! Staff chatty and friendly, food was plentiful and the steak pie was to die for. I would 100% recommend paying a visit if you are in the area.

The surley blond woman seated us, plonked us right by the noisy swing door for the toilet and kitchen staff use. My wife's skink soup was tasty, not much fish and some of the potatoes were bordering on raw. My venison burger comprised of a plate of chips, small lunch roll with a small burger with plastic cheese...not much for... More

We stopped here for lunch during a rainy day. The restaurant is right after the bridge and it has a car parking. We liked the exterior appearance of the restaurant, which seemed us to be like a typical Scottish restaurant. This has helped us to feel more the highland spirit. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant. The service was... More

I visited wth my family during a weeks stay in the area. In all honesty we came here because we couldn't really find anywhere else but we were very pleased with the food on offer. On the first night we ordered the haggis starter but the waitress forgot to put the order through. In the end we had one haggis... More

Good friendly pub with great atmosphere. Excellent choice of Single Malts from local distillers and good selection of beers! Simple food but very good and reasonably priced. A short walk from The Highland Club where we were staying.
