“great meal”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

the bothy serves up a great meal with excellent service at a great price and a very good pint of tenents lager, worth a visit if you are in fort augustus, but don't be too late, it does get very busy for lunch and evening meal

“Nothing special.. ”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We'd arrived at what must have been there busy time with only one table free. A good sign you'd think.
I was disappointed, I'd eaten here once before and it was excellent, today however was just mediocre. We ordered Haggis to start, think it would be served typically with mashed neeps etc. No, solid lumps of turnip on top of oatcakes the topped off with the haggis, looked great but then the oatcakes were soggy, turnip undercooked and haggis wasn't anything special.
We both ordered different types of chicken main courses. Have to say, to hot to taste what it was supposed to be flavoured with, the sauce on mine wasn't really a sauce it was just what can only be described as a watery cream.. presentation wise, I think you may be stuck in the 70's with the salad garnish.. didn't stretch to desserts, maybe that was a good thing..
Staff however were friendly enough, albeit no older than 18!!

“Good Food & Excellent Service”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Ate here a couple of days ago on our way to Oban. The food was very tasty and fairly priced. Quick attentive service by the lovely friendly staff. Will definately stop here again.

“Slightly Disappointed”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We arrived around 17.30 to find that most things were off the menu, to the point I asked what was left...
The meal itself was okay, but it was a case of hobsons choice as everthing else I liked was off. Service was slow and it wasnt even that busy.
Think what made it worse was the fact were were sitting by the window, watching the kitchen staff smoking then going back to the kitchen...very off putting.
Would I go there again I doubt it.
