Stationmasters Hostel is an absolutely lovely hostel in the tiny village of Stromeferry. We were 3 girls and all of us loved it there - great location at a lake, where you can relax perfectly. You should rent a car though as a car makes it much easier to get there and see the surroundings. Nice rooms, good kitchen and... More

We spent one night here and we weren't disappointed. A really lovely hostel, warm and homely and the guy who runs it ewan is really welcoming. The best bit about the hostel is the view of the loch and the wee beach plus the village of stromeferry (no ferry) is quiet and peaceful. Really clean and fresh room plus breakfast... More

Wooden bunks (rather than the typical prison-style metal cage), several clean bathrooms, lots of hot water in the shower, very (very!) friendly hosts ... simply perfect! The price includes a small breakfast (toast, cereals, and your typical beverages), the common room is cozy and there also is a nice outside sitting area. Only 15 minutes by car to Eilean Donan...

We were looking for a cheap accomodation just outside Skye Island and we arrived there almost by chance. What a nice find! Although the location is pretty remote (no grocery store within 20 miles..so plan your food before arriving !) It is also a beautiful setting with a magnificient view and really cozy atmosphere in the living room! The kitchen... More

A warm welcome, we stayed 3 nights, very comfortable. Beautiful views across the loch and within easy reach of Skye, Torridon and many munros! They even provide breakfast. If it's chilly then the wood stove soon warms up the room. A very good place to stay.

I had a great time! The breakfast is tasty and the kitchen spacious. Also the owner is a friendly guy! I stayed with 3 friends and we had a room to ourselves with our own bathroom. It was tidy and in a lovely location. Also downstairs is a comfortable area with couches and games. It felt more like a bed... More

I have travelled quite extensively in Scotland, I'm obsessed with the country as a whole and have spent many days to and from Skye. After staying at Stationmasters, you can be assured I will not stay anywhere else! The owners are friendly and nice and truly made us seem welcome. We saw otters every morning that we were there and... More
