    We are delighted to read your review. There are now more independent hostels in Scotland than official Youth Hostels, each with their own unique character and quite distinct. It's great when we are seen to be getting things right. Thank you so much.

    If everything in Fort William is booked out this provides a good, clean comfy option, only a quick train ride or 9 pound cab fare away in Banavie. Great especially if you have a group, but if you're on a solo trip you might want...More

    I arrived needing early access as injured heels from overwalking had to be rested. I appreciated the friendly welcome, airy dorm and generous breakfast. I particularly thank the receptionist for his courteous attention in arranging my transport.

    Stayed here ahead of starting the 3 peaks challenge. Comfortable nights sleep and good kitchen facilities. Very kind of the gentleman on the front desk to stay after 10pm as we were running late for check in. Easy check out. Very good!
