The cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in, with great facilities, really useful kitchen with everything provided, and the most helpful and friendly manager Theresa. We found the hostel by coincidence because the rain scared us away from camping, and Theresa was super helpful with giving us the rooms and drying our things. Brilliant morning/evening views! The living room is super... More

This was the best hostel/bunkhouse I've stayed in during my time in the UK. The atmosphere is incredibly cozy and charming and the hostess is soo nice, making you feel more than at home. Everything is clean and you'll be able to sleep with sweet dreams. I woke up to the the misty morning air of Skye, made some tea... More

We stayed as a family of 4 in one of the wigwams. It was clean, warm and well equipped and it was a huge plus having the use of the bunkhouse kitchen and communal space for meals and evenings. Theresa's warm welcome and help throughout our stay was much appreciated and the location is ideal for exploring the island. Would... More

This was our first visit to Skye and the first time we have taken our dog Alfie away with us. This site is in a stunning location and is so peaceful and tranquil, we booked 3 nights in one of the wigwams which we loved. Over the years we have stayed in many wigwams and these were the best by... More

After looking for a dry place to stay for a while, we were extremely happy to stumble upon this place. Within 10 minutes, we were settled down, had a very nice place to stay, an fully equipped kitchen, a good bed and a shower. The owner was extremely friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. Prices were not cheap, but... More

Theresa is an absolutely lovely woman. She took our family in at late notice and couldn't have been any friendlier or helpful. It was delightful and the family thouroughly enjoyed our brief stay. Thank you so much for the warm, Scottish hospitaly.

Arrived by cycle, drenched, in the middle of a gale. Therasa, the friendly owner said she was full, but seeing the state of me, squeezed me in, even laid towels and newspapers out for all my wet gear and made me a coffee. Bunk comfy, good kitchen with a 'honesty jar' pantry for the things you've forgotten, nice eating area... More

Stayed in a wigwam for one night and will return - both the bunks and the bothy also looked great, so might come back as a group! Friendly owners, tranquil location and affordable prices - especially for the wigwams, considering other wigwam sites in Skye. Nice kitchen facilities too and a comfortable nights sleep, much more interesting and memorable than... More
