Maybe we enjoyed it so much because there were not many people in it (stayed right after easter), but this little hostel is really picteresque, cozy and warm. The living room - kitchen on the first floor is really great, with big windows at the station, soft sofas and table games. Ten minutes walk from most beautifull Plockton. The lady... More

I didn't actually stay in the bunkhouse, but I did stay at the b and b which the owners have in their adjoining house. It's called 'Nessun Dorma' which is not particularly auspicious ! Just a couple of rooms, but reasonable prices and with a good breakfast. Owners friendly. Shower/loo is to share between the two rooms, so worth noting... More

Nice bunkhouse in the old signal box - consequently the lounge is light and airy with distant views of the mountains. Its handy for the station but the town is a bit of a hike. Dormitories a bit crowded - six bunks in a small room - four would have been about right.

The bunkhouse is on the outskirts of the village. The kitchen dining and lounge are are upstairs with the bedrooms and 2 shower rooms downstairs. Beds are comfy and come with sheet sleeping bags and quilts. 5 of us in a 6 bed room which was quite warm this year. The windows need to be kept closed due to the... More

Three of us stayed here for our friends' wedding, and it was absolutely perfect! Friendly staff and other residents, comfy beds, excellent services. We really weren't expecting it to have such a nice kitchen and lounge, 2 fridges, microwave, all crockery we needed, storage shelves, etc. Much nicer than staying in a hotel, and we met some lovely people!

A group of 20 of us took over the bunkhouse for 2 nights to mark a special occasion. It is great for such an occasion with just a few reservations. The hostel is clean, well equipped (there are now 2 good sized fridges) and situated on the edge of one of the prettiest villages in Scotland. Mick, the owner, and... More

Our group booked the whole hostel and it was comfortable with only 12 of us. We really enjoyed our stay. Plockton is lovely and there are plenty of mountains nearby to climb and it’s easy to pop over to Skye for a visit. The beds are really comfy, the showers are good and the kitchen is quite well appointed with... More

Though Plockton is verra pretty, one can't help feeling that the local providers could smarten their act up a bit... and this applies to the hostel as well. This purpose built bunkhouse lacks charm and character. I understand that it is a bit off the track for good craic and that there is no provision for a traveller to just... More
