The Bothy Bar

The Bothy Bar is the main bar of the hotel. It is used by residents, campers and non-residents as a social meeting point. The solid fuel stove assures you of a warm, cosy environment in which to relax and unwind on those wet and chilly days! There are a number of entertainment facilities, such as a pool table, a dart board, a trivia game computer and board games. Coverage of major sporting events are screened via BT Sports. Dogs are welcome in the bar and accompanied children can stay in the bar until 10pm.

The view from the bar down the loch to the Pap of Glencoe is the best in the area. If you are lucky enough to be in the bar at sunset, be sure to bring your camera!


Our legendary burgers are the talk of the town! Handmade with Scottish beef or venison, with added beef marrow for a great flavour, and served in seeded brioche buns. Dare you take on the Highlander Burger? We also have a daily Bothy Pot of a hearty casserole or stew and other dishes include Chilli, Mac Cheese, Haggis and Ale Battered Haddock.


A wide selection of real ales, ciders and craft beers are available on tap and in bottles. An impressive selection of over 90 malt whiskies, wines, and spirits and are also available.

The Purple Stag Restaurant

New for 2015 is the Purple Stag Restaurant, showcasing local produce in our newly refurbished restaurant. Regular dishes include Mallaig Peat Smoked Salmon, Local Scallops, Confit of Duck with Stornoway Black Pudding, Loch Leven Trout and Scottish Aged Steaks.

The hotel restaurant is a more formal dining room and is the perfect venue for that special meal or group function. It is an ideal location for birthdays, weddings, funerals and other functions.


Starting the day with a hearty Breakfast is important for most of our guests and we offer a buffet of fruit, cereals, porridge and yoghurts, followed by our Highland Feast of pork sausage, bacon, black pudding, tomatoes, mushrooms, beans, egg and potato scone, we also have a great vegetarian breakfast and smoked kippers for those of you who fancy something a little different.
