We stopped here en route to the Isle of Skye. Being a Sunday, there were limited options for eating, and Hector's was busy, and understaffed, so the waitresses were run off their feet ... adding further staff might be helpful in turning over tables and...More

Had a great breakfast at Hectors yesterday. Generous portion and free drink refill certainly worth the money. Staff were friendly and attentive. We both had the Fully Bothy breakfast and it was delicious. Def worth a look.

Go here for lunch or a drink. Food is ok. It's not cosy and I wouldn't go here for a special meal. Good location with free parking.

In a hurry to catch a train, me and two colleagues got take away sandwiches from Hectors Bothy. The portions were large, the food was tasty and reasonably priced. Fast service made for an even better experience.
