6 guys, 3 nights, beaches, mountains, and St Kilda
That sums up our trip and reason for booking this quirky hotel which was just the perfect base for our wonderful stay on Harris
We were very lucky with the weather and found ourselves sitting on a beach within walking distance with food, wine, and guitars.
The bunkhouse had great facilities with good rooms, ( we had two rooms of four and had to share one room on one night). The communal area had adequate seating, good cooking facilities, and lots of local character.
The bunkhouse was always busy. There will always be 'interesting' folk who use these types of accommodation, and this was no different, but that is part of the attraction in bunkhouse accom.
The owner was always at hand if needed, and never interfering.
We did party our nights away with guitars and some songs, and the other residents all joined in. There are bedrooms are away from the main area so if you always want total silence be sure and ask when you book.
Over all, probably the best bunkhouse I've stayed in, and will use it again if I'm lucky enough to visits one of the most beautiful areas in Sotland, if not the world!
