I went on... More

Spent two nights here coupled with some walking. Although I arrived early on the ferry from Mallaig I was welcomed in by Anna who was very helpful. Later I met Fiona who was equally friendly. The facilities were good & the bed comfortable. This bunkhouse is all one should be in an area devoted to outside activities. Apart from anythingelse... More

It's great that you found the Bunkhouse to be exactly the sort of place you needed when you stayed on Knoydart. Anna & Fiona are great hosts - Anna would have been in the process of handing over the warden responsibilities at the time, as Fiona has now taken over the job. She is perfect for our Bunkhouse!

This is one of the best bunkhouses we have stayed for value and facilities. The drying room is brilliant, the sitting room has computer access, cosy log burner and comfy chairs, books etc. There are hot showers, great after a long walk. The Warden Anna and Warden in training Fiona are very helpful and friendly. The Kitchen is well equipped... More

It's great that the Bunkhouse was just what you were looking for and more and it's always our pleasure to provide a lovely shower and comfy bed after a hard day's walking. Interesting comment about the dining room: it's always good to know what folk think. We are, in fact, in the early stages of discussions about some possible changes... More

The Knoydart Foundation Bunkhouse has lots of room for a big gang. It is spread out among the old stables of Knoydart Lodge, with several sleeping rooms, a big cozy sitting room with a wood stove and a big kitchen for your food preparation. Don't expect luxury, but do expect a very friendly atmosphere.

We didn't arrive in Inverie via the ferry like most, we opted to walk from the Barrisdale Bothy, via Ladhar Bheinn. The hot shower on arrival at the Knoydart foundation lodge, was very enjoyable. Comfortable beds, and bedding is provided, Anna, is very helpful, and the pub is a short walk away at the other end of the village. We... More

Congratulations on your walk in via Ladhar Bheinn and we're glad to be of service with the well-deserved hot shower! You're right about the tip for flip-flops or similar if guests are in Room 1 and it's been noted - thank you. More

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every part of our trip (even thought we did have more rain then we would have liked!). The bunkhouse was perfect - very well looked after and has a very pleasant atmosphere. Anna is doing a great job. During our stay the bunkhouse was rather full as there was one large group with...

Thank you for your lovely comments about your stay at the Bunkhouse; we're glad you enjoyed it and that everything worked out for your stay on Knoydart - even the weather and your lift across the Inverguserain river! You're right about bringing torches here, they are a must.......it does get very dark here on a moonless night. More

I have traveled the world but few places are as fascinating at Knoydart. I am glad we stayed in the bunkhouse. It has everything one might need from a roaring fireplace to a hot shower. We were three snoring blokes and as the place was empty we each had our own room! Thanks for making our stay such a memorable... More

We think Knoydart's pretty special too! We know how important a roaring stove and a hot shower is after a hard day's walking in the hills - happy to be of service :-) And yes, we recommend to all our guests to bring a torch as we have very dark skies when the moon's not out! More

Hi there, I have stayed in many hostels in Scotland (btw the overall quality of hostels in Scotland is really poor, especially in Edinburgh - cannot be compared to let´s say Ireland) and I have to say that KFB is definitely the best: 1/ clean (maybe some rug or something in the reception area would be a good idea –...

Thank you for your lovely comments. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found it to be just what you needed after your long walk. We have taken on board your comments about being in the room next to the kitchen; some others have raised the same point - so we have ordered some earplugs! More
