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...

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. You must have missed the wee 2 ring baby Belling cooker/grill on the worktop opposite the main cooker, but well done for coping without... More

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

From the moment we set off from Mallaig we knew we would have a great time in Knoydart. I've never felt so relaxed! The bunkhouse itself was even better than we expected. Extremely comfortable, very clean and quiet, and with a seriously well equipped kitchen and lounge.

Thank you for your lovely comments about the Bunkhouse, we're pleased you found it just right for your needs whilst walking in Knoydart. It was disappointing to read your feedback regarding the pub though and I'm sorry you felt it spoiled your experience of our beautiful peninsula.

We reserved two beds at the Knoydart Bunkhouse and were very glad we did so. Unlike most visitors, I hiked in to Inverie with my 18 year old daughter from the train station at Glenfinnan. This turned out to be one of the toughest hikes I have ever done: it is 28 miles and we only had 6 hours of... More

Having just returned from spending three days at the bunkhouse, I felt compelled to write the thank Fiona for both her sterling efforts in keeping the place really clean, but still having the time to welcome new guests as well as chat to those already there.

We stayed at the bunkhouse campsite - delightfully located on the beach - and our expectations were exceeded. The toilet and shelter newly built were ideal, the view stunning, and our fellow campers great company. I came with a friend to climb the hills and check out the campsite - I had planned to return later in the summer with... More

We were in a group of 10 men, and did not receive a very warm welcome. Appreciate Fiona's concerns about rowdy stag do's but we should not all be tarred with the same brush. Would recommend staying elsewhere if you are a large group of males and don't want to worry about being thrown out. The bunkhouse itself was clean... More

Thank you for your feedback and we appreciate your concerns. We have had some pretty bad experiences in the past with stag groups and I'm sure you can imagine it's very difficult to gauge how responsible such a group will be during their stay. We naturally have to consider all of our guests and we do prefer stag groups to... More
