Like EmmaCG12 we visited Hectors for a special event but the warmth of the welcome and the quality of the food will guarantee a return visit. Great location and caters for all tastes in comfortable surroundings.

My husband and I went to eat at Hector's Bothy on the way back from our friends' wedding up in Sleat in September and we really couldn't fault this place. The married couple put on a leaving lunch here on the Sunday and we were overwhelmed at the spread: beautiful langoustines, prawns, cold meats, cheeses, soup and fench patisserie style cakes, all with a very warm welcome....the perfect ending to an amazing weekend on Skye.

This is a wonderful visit where Mhairi will do you proud. Located just around the corner from the station at Kyle, and really easy to find. The food is fab, the service great, and the prices are keen too. What more can you ask for. Definitely a 5 star recommendation from me.

We allways make for Hectors when passing through the Kyle. Friendly and reliable for decent food and good coffee. No fuss, no frills and doing so well that they recently expanded their premises. Says it all.

This is ideally located oppositie the Tourist Information, less than a minutes walk from the railway station and sea front as well as being beside the alleyway to the Post Office.

I had a nice large mug of filter coffee with a fresh cherry scone & butter.

Just right for a mid-morning snack.

The establishment was very clean with comfortable seating by the window.

I made a joke to the waitress of delivery of the 'cake trolley' on ordering ...a tradtition in some cafes in the NE of Scotland but she was very polite and entertaining back 'not being a trolley dollie'.

I gave a good tip in the tipping dish beside the till. Much easier than leaving on the table.

It was noticeable whilst in there writing post cards, that there were plenty of locals coming in ordering takeaway sandwiches, etc.... that's what I take as a GOOD SIGN.
