My boyfriend and I had booked a 2 nyt stay in the sleeping car so that we could see all the sights and do a bit of walking. I have stayed before when I was a child and loved it. The place hadn't change much however it was manky and really needed a good clean, bins hadn't been emptied, dishes... More

We stayed at the sleeping car on a quiet November weekend when the other hotels and things in the area were all closed. Thankfully the railway car stays open all year. It was my son's 4th birthday and being a bit of a train nut we thought he'd enjoy sleeping in the old railway car. It is amazing! Old and... More

The train carriage hotel idea is fantastic and the station and the carriage itself is full of old world charm. Great to spend a night in to experience it but wouldn't want to spend many nights stay as rooms as small (naturally as sleeping coupes) and beds not as comfortable as a proper bed (but again that is to be...

This is a unique stay experience but you should know what you're in for. Since you will be in the highlands mostly for walks, it isn't the place place to come back to for tired legs and an aching body. However I have to say that the staff are very very helpful and hats off to them for everything. I... More

Staying in a converted railway car was great fun, with the family bunk room and other family in the other rooms it was really good fun, a lovely view and something outside the norm of a hotel or hostel, thoroughly recommend this place and its a good price, only minus point is the walls are paper thin, some if the...

What a wonderful, quirky unusual place to stay. The sleeper car comes with five sleeping bunks. Don't be expecting a massive room they are on a train carriage. Then you get a shower room a separate w.c and a two sink area. At the other end of the carriage there is a well equipped kitchen and then a dining/seating area.... More

It's a hostel. It's an old sleeper carriage. Don't expect huge rooms! However, we stayed in the famliy room - double bed and bunks and it was roomy enough. It's really sociable with a communal kitchen and dining area. You're right over from the station, with a short walk to get a good view of the viaduct (think Harry Potter!)... More

We found the sleeping car, our compartment, the kitchen and sitting area and the toilet and shower area to be absolutely clean and well looked after. The kitchen is well eqipped and the sitting area is lovely decorated. We were watching the birds outside, while having our breakfast, and enjoyed the silence you find in the sleeping car during the... More

Great experience to go for coffee or lunch in the 60 year old railway carriage. Food is excellent and the staff are very friendly. The museum is modest but very well done. Well worth visiting including the walk to the Harry Potter viaduct!

We didn't stay the night but we had lunch in the rail car next to it and it was the most beautiful soup and sandwich. Very tasty soup and freshly made sandwich. Lovely friendly staff.
