Middle of nowhere, with everything you really need. A warm and friendly welcome from Hanne the warden, and comfortable accommodation. The kitchen is well equipped and the location is ideal for lovely walks - both up mountains and along the valley.

Just popped in for a coffee, mars bar and a chat with Hanna. The place is wonderful, wood panelled and, I imagine, very cosy. I could envisage how fantastic it must be to return here after a tough day in the hills..midges and the dreich.
