The bunkhouse is a great little place centrally located for hillwalking in the Ullapool area. Iain is the host and he knows all about the hills in the local area and will be happy to share his knowledge of routes and trailheads with you. The bunkhouse has two sleeping areas on either side of the central kitchen/seating area. There are... More

We very delighted to find a bunkhouse with two rooms (4 persons each) a well equiped kitchen and some sofa's to relax in. In the drying room we were able to put all our motor gear to be ready for the next trip. We would... More

Great location for munros and much more. It is well equipped and very comfortable. Iain has experience of staying in other bunkhouses and understands what people need and expect. He is a great guy and nothing is too much trouble. If he could only sort the weather!! I will be back I have unfinished buisness!!!! 😀 😀😀😀😀😀

Three of us stayed a night here but wish it could have been longer. Iain the perfect host for those who love the outdoors (and what a great selection of books in the lounge!). The perfect stress-free with a stunning waterfall walk just 50 yards away. Kids will love feeding the rabbits. We'll be back :@)

Great B&B accommodation perfectly situated for hillwalking and whatever else takes your fancy. Very comfortable room and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Good traditional breakfast too. Iain is on hand to provide local knowledge about what to do in the area. The bunkhouse looks great too.
