Stayed here and extended my stay to 4 days... Great facilities, fully equipped kitchen, with a great communal area, hot showers, comfy beds and a "Super" drying room! Located very handily for a whole range of Munros, local walks, activities and attractions.... Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and "Ally" (mine hostess!), very knowledgeable about all things local, walking and cycling! The mixed bag of fellow travellers, walkers, cyclists made for a jolly company and merriement.
Well worth trying to book (in advance, to avoid dissapointment!) a little gem for all that like the great outdoors
