We arrived Nov '14 for a few nights, it has taken me a long time to find the time to write my review. I do not normally write reviews, for anything. I just want to thank Fiona for being so understanding when I arrived with my two small children, on my own, for a few days 'break' and one of... More

Fiona certainly has her role at the Bunkhouse for a reason! What an experience for you all, but clearly made bearable with a guest of the right profession and our lovely warden! Thank you for you comments - we will pass them on to Fiona. Hopefully you'll make it back to visit us again soon. More

I came with a group and we were able to secure a whole dorm to ourselves having booked ahead. The bunkhouse proved to be a comfy spot if a little worn at the edges. A cosy shared living room, clean showers and kitchen. Linens and towels are available for a slight fee. As with most hostels the experience probably varies... More

Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to provide for your needs. See again one day soon! p.s. just to clarify, bed linen is included in the price; towels do indeed require a small donation. More

I'm a big fan of Hostels and know all too well the Pros and Cons of staying in them. These are my thoughts after staying at the Bunkhouse for 4 Nights. Good Points. The Lounge is the highlight of the hostel. A lovely space to spend the evening when the fire is lit. Very warm and cosy. New heaters in... More

Thank you for your comments and feedback following your stay back in October. It's a shame you didn't speak to Fiona (the bunkhouse warden) during your stay to be able to discuss and resolve some of your concerns. However now that you have taken the time and finally brought them to our attention, we'd like to address each one: Your... More

Clean linen, hot showers and warmth after four wet days in the hills - this place was fantastic. Very clean with lots of hot water it was just what we needed. The ability to hire towels was a godsend. Facilities wise it has everything you'd want, nice kitchen with good kit, ample lounge and fire and a decent sized dinning... More

Terrific place to visit . Very clean and fresh. Fiona the manager has an excellent work ethic and enjoys managing the bunkhouse . She is more than happy to chat to and advise guests on any local advice within her knowledge.. This makes for a better atmosphere and the visit more memorable. I am looking forward to my return visit.... More

Can you imagine the sound's that might occur during a night in a room with eight other walkers, some will snore, some will get up for trips to the loo, the usual for a night in a bunkhouse, which is acceptable, but it appears that if you wear a CPAP unit to help you breath the folk at the bunkhouse...

I’m sorry that you felt you had to write such a response following your phone conversation with Fiona, our Bunkhouse warden, however your frustration is understandable. Despite information from your partner after she and Fiona exchanged a number of emails, and research of our own, it is clear that we may not have fully understood the situation that Fiona was...

We decided to go to Inverie somewhat at the last minute and although we were able to get two spots at the bunkhouse on a Saturday night with less than 24 hours notice we highly recommend you reserve in advance. Sara was staffing the bunkhouse when we arrived - she gave us a friendly greeting and got us settled straight... More

Comfortable bunkhouse, clean, busy when I visited but well looked after by people who clearly care about what they do. Good facilities, hot showers, towels to hire at £1, internet if you are desperate. Some patience may be needed using kitchen as only one cooker available. However this is Knoydart and it's brilliant!

Thank you for your kind and helpful comments and we're really glad you enjoyed your stay with us so much. Yes, the kitchen can indeed get very busy when everyone wants to use it at once.

Walked in over 2 days from Kinlochhourn Head. The Bunkhouse is very clean, friendly, well run, everything you could ask for and more. A great litle place to stay. Towels available to hire were appreciated and the availability of the nearby 'burger van' was welcomed for a lazy meal. I would definitely recommend the Bunkhouse but you must mind sharing... More
