Stayed at this hostel whilst hiking the East Highland Way - it was an AMAZING place to stop after a few wet days. Excellent drying room, host (Alison) was absolutely lovely. All rooms were clean and kitchen was well equipped. All in all, fantastic value for money! Highly recommended

Our 3rd time as a motorcycle club staying here. What can I say "SUPERB". We booked the whole hostel again and no doubt we'll be back again next year. Plenty of bike parking space, logs for the fire, tea, coffee etc

I and my son stayed in one of the rooms in the main house with use of the hostel during our Scottish adventure holiday this year. Ideal place for us as very close to outdoor activities. Top hospitality from Neil and Sue. Lots of places to eat out if like me not big on cooking after being out all day!!

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

Room Tip: Book in advance... this hostel is on may walking adn cycling routes across the Cairngorms!

A great budget stay. This is basically a hostel, the hostel rooms of which are located in a wooden building behind the traditional stone house on the High Street. I've stayed in the hostel and it is comfortable and well equipped for walkers and other outdoor people, good drying facilities and so on.

The hostel does have two room inside of the house building. This is not a B&B (there is no breakfast) and the room in not en-suite but it is very comfortable and the hosts very welcoming. A very good budget option — either in the host or the house.
