Brilliant for a visit to the Scottish highlands. We used this as a stop off on route to Fort William and it was ideal. Good facilities and friendly atmosphere made it a very pleasant stay. I plan to visit again in August.

My wife, step daughter and me had a fantastic time staying in one of the micro lodges which were well equipped, clean and comfortable. The shower block and toilets are also clean and well maintained. Also the kitchen in the hostel was ideal with plenty of tables. We only used it for breakfast as we ate out at local pubs... More

We stayed in a microlodge. Facilities for all campers/lodges were excellent. Pub, chip shop and co-op (open late), within 3 minutes walk. Very pretty by the river, and a pretty little village. All in all a good choice!

We stayed here for 2 nights in the micro-lodges as a base for touring, it was ideally positioned just outside Fort William. All amenities are on hand, Co-op, Pub, Bank and Post-Office all 2mins walk into the village. Kinlochleven also has the Ice Factor where you can get lessons on rock climbing/ice climbing and aerial assault course. I was touring... More
