Really enjoyed our stay in this cosy, clear and well specified bunkhouse. Manager is great and very friendly. Lounge area really comfortable and good drying facilities when you come off the hill. Showers work which is always welcomed. Will go back.

My brothers and I walked into Knoydart from Glenfinnan, and after 3 days hard walking along some very snowy hill paths (we think we were on the path!), fording rivers, and staying in the lovely (and very well maintained, which I and many others are very grateful for) but somewhat basic bothys, With a dodgy knee, I couldn't resist the...

It sounds as though we were your haven after an adventurous walk in to Knoydart - very glad to be of service and well done on such a feat in winter!

It is indeed 15 minutes walk from the pier-very pleasant stroll too. Bunkhouse built in old farmhouse and byre so not exactly perfect layout but it does add to the charm of the place. Nice warm sitting room, masses of films (we watched none), plenty of seats etc. Kitchen could do with another cooker plus enough mugs & glasses for... More

My partner and I stayed in September after I had made a couple of day trips to Knoydart during August and earlier in September. Really, I was scouting for my partner, I and eight friends from London. We wanted to stay for ten days, "do some Munroes and Corbetts" and chill out and enjoy the wild, beautiful place that Knoydart... More

Thank you for your positive comments about the Bunkhouse, Fiona and the helpful locals. (I'm sorry this response is so late, but it appears that our original one didn't go through to the site.) I think you are probably referring to Frank with the distinctive moustache - I will pass on your thanks to him and the others you've mentioned!... More

Stayed here for one night after walking from Glenfinnan and planning to get the ferry home the next morning. Welcome hot showers with towels provided, comfy beds with bedding and a great atmosphere with excellent value for money. What more could you ask for?

Stayed for 2 nights as we were climbing some hills in the area, this is a great bunk house, clean and warm with hot showers, good drying room that really does dry your wet gear and the staff are very nice and helpful. Good range of pots, pans and cooking utensils which many hostels lack, loved the Port Meirion crockery.... More

Thank you for your comments. We added the drying room last year and it has been a huge hit! It's a must for such notoriously wet walking conditions like those we get on the west coast. And glad to hear you found the kitchen supplies more than adequate - well-travelled staff know about these important things ;-) Fiona and the... More

Stayed in the knoydart foundation bunkhouse, a good clean hostel. Warden Fiona was very pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much bother. Knoydart itself is the most fantastic place well worth visiting if you enjoy The wilderness. Also has a fab wee pub, we also enjoyed music in the village Hall, just cant wait till our next visit.

Glad you have such a great stay at the Bunkhouse and you enjoyed the whole Knoydart holiday. Fiona has been our new warden since May this year and she is very popular with everyone - we (and our guests!) are very lucky to have her on board. Thank you for your lovely comments. 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.

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!

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
