We ate one meal here during our stay in Kinlochleven and were surprised at how good the food was. And it was more than a bargain... A great chilled out place with a friendly atmosphere and very friendly staff.

Was up at the climbing centre last summer and the highlight of the evening- after a good days climbing- was definetly a cold beer and a tune at the Bothan Bar. I have to say, it was great to have a licensed bar on site...More
