Great drying room! Friendly people, comfortable room, quiet location. The upstairs room wasn't very big with everyone's stuff, but it was sufficient. There was room in the hallway, I suppose, if you wanted to leave something out there. I liked having a skylight/window. There was even a TV in the room, though it didn't get much use. The en suite...

We were doing the West Highland Way, and this accomodation was at the very end of one of the thoughest day... and it was very welcome. The staff was very welcome, eager to help. Facilities are nice, including a nice kitchen and a drying room. I'll recommend this place to my friends. The olny drawback is that it's totally full... More

My boyfriend and me stayed in the beginning of August 2014 one night in a micro lodge for two persons. The room was small, but clean. Midges were everywhere outside, so if you can stay in the hostel or in a micro lodge and don't camp there ;-). Showers and the toilet were outside. We payed 35Pounds for one night,... More

We stayed in a microlodge (very clean and comfortable with fridge and microwave oven). Toilets were clean and spacious and we could use a wonderful, super clean and super equipped kitchen to make our meals. The kitchen/ common room was not only efficient but also welcoming. The drying room was spacious and well heated (very useful!!!). There is also a... More

The pod we stayed in was great. It was very well equipped with a fridge, microwave, TV and fan. The beds have mattresses which were surprisingly comfortable. There is a sturdy picnic table outside the pod overlooking a stream. The hostels facilities were good. The showers are communal but separate from the toilets so that wasn't too bad. The kitchen...

Great campsite, welcoming hosts and clean accomodation, this was my third visit and will be back again. We booked a Hobbit House for me, my wife and two teenage kids, plenty of room and all the facilities in the Hobbit House you could ever need. We use this as our accomodation on the last night of walking the WHW and... More

Super clean with friendly staff! One of the best hostels of the WHW. Wifi isnt so great, I had to keep resetting the router. Ktichen facilities were great so it made preparing food a breeze. I stayed int he microlodge which was cute.

Excellent. Something different staying in a pod. Toilets and showers very clean. We hired bed linen which was £5 each for a sleeping bag and liner, but no pillow:( Car parking on site. Watch out for midgees!!!!

Great adequate accommodation - friendly welcome. Well kept throughout. The whole Blackwater stay experience was exceptional! The only observation/criticism would be that it become extremely warm late evening and impossible to open windows due to midges!

Again for 7.50 you cannot expect too much. The pitches are comfortable, if a little cramped due to how busy this place gets. The showers are ok, though they are open and not very private. There is a drying room and a under shelter area. Positives: only place I have been where there is 6-8 sockets purely for campers charging... More
