We stayed in the glamping pods for 2 nights. The location is great, the pod itself was neat and clean and the hostel facilities were very good. Village has plenty of pubs and leisure possibilities and is a perfect base for hikes and trips. Only the wifi wasn't very good and the fridge in the pod was a little noisy... More

Beautiful location by loch. Lovely little pods, right on the banks of the river. Two pubs and a shop within 5 mins walk. Clean toilets and showers. Only downside was no storage space in the microlodges. Would definitely recommend.

Taking on the West Highland Way and realising on Night 3 out of 4 that our tent wasn't waterproof, we managed to locate a warm bed to stay in within the BlackWater Hostel for our fourth and final evening. Most people hear about hostels and tend to bypass them, however this was a fantastic option. Each room has an en-suite... More

Blackwater camp site was fab and using the pod as our accommodation really helped. The venue is great surrounded by mountains and with sunning views. It's handy for the shops and the chip shop as well as being well serviced with showers and toilet facilities and a washing up area. Although there were campers around us it was quiet and... More

I stayed with 3 friends in a glamping pod everything was very clean and there was never a queue for facilities. The location was good as you could walk to the bars in the local village that also served good food. The only downside that I can think of was the mattresses were not comfortable so it wasn't the best... More

Great set up and terrific location, not a very big site which was great and a popular stop of for the west higland way walkers. just a short walk in to the town for a couple of pubs and some food with great views. pods are clean and warm sitting on the side of the river and woods,definitley recommended.
