Won't be eating there agen as they could not even get a box of chips done right well over cooked and the sandwich looked like it had been chucked together with no care at all, That's not to mention the melted plastic box's

One would never think that behind the plain facade of Hector's Bothy lay such good seafood. Naturally, the seafood is fresh. The service is fast and the food great. The demeanor of the property is one of service to the locals with no frills. The mussels, which were delivered from the boat at 4PM, were some of the very best... More

While we were in Kyle of Lochalsh, we decided to re-visit Hectors Bothy to have something to eat. The fish and chips was superb with salad. The restaurant is in a great location looking over to the Isle of Skye. Should you be visiting Kyle of Lochalsh I would recommend a visit to Hectors!!!

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.

Parked in public area before crossing Skye Bridge. I had a chicken and cranberry sandwich and my wife had a brie and bacon panini. Friendly and attentive service.

Fish and chips before going "over the sea to Skye". Attentive service in a busy restaurant. Good hearty plates.

We have been regular visitors to Hectors Bothy for a number of years and we are never disappointed. The food is excellent quality at a really good price and the staff are really good. They provide excellent customer service. Today we had Haddock and Chips. The batter was light and crispy on the fish and the chips piping hot and... More
