My comments would mirror exactly the previous reviewer - phatstanley, I would add that in my experience of taking Secondary School pupils to various locations, the local people at all the attractions we visited are much more friendly and welcoming of school pupils up here than they have been further South. This is our second time staying in Nethy Station...

Thanks for the great review - funny how often Narnia is mentioned! It is always nice to have visits from schools like yours and we recognise the amazing commitment that teachers like you put inot these trips. It encourages us to try to make it as easy as possible!

The station is my idea of a great hostel: a rustic quality, basic amenities, triple bunks (which the kids love!), buckets of character and its proximity to some of the most scenic bits of the country . Richard and Patricia are brilliant hosts and he never fails to greet our group leaders (with usually 14-16 high school pupils in tow)...

Wow, Gary B, thanks! I think you may have been wearing your rose-coloured specs - but then we try to make our service to our customers overcome any problems that such old buildings may throw up!

Perfect. A group of 15 Staggers on a trip to the highlands via Edinburgh. We arrived at Nethy Station to Cairngorm Gold on tap.

My best man arranged my stag do, including the accommodation. I was very pleasantly surprised. This was the perfect base for us. It is large, and when I say that, I mean massive. It had everything to keep a group of wild, immature guys entertained for the weekend. The pool table, sound system, bar with functioning optics, fusbal table, were...

Wow! Thanks for that. I am sure that there will be a number of people who are not surprised that you managed to 'force' Richard into joining in your drinking games!

As a group from work we've used the Abernethy Bunkhouse 4 times, given that our original intention was to explore all the different places of Scotland, the fact that we've ended up coming back (and have even booked again for next year) says an awful lot about both the place and the owners. The two key discriminators for this place...
