A basic café but did serve reasonable food. Had a sandwich one day and a lunch another. Good price and freshly prepared.

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
