The hostel is small but has everything you need and a wonderful character. It is on the edge of the village, with Abernethy Forest a mile away and Red squirrels on the feeder outside the window. Staff were friendly and very helpful. There is a cottage, hut, small campsite, the owners and their ducks on site so there are a few ground rules but they are obvious enough and it all works well. To anyone who finds Aviemore and Glenmore a bit brash, busy and overdeveloped, come here and you'll fall in love with Speyside afresh.
