The on-site bar had a great selection of whiskies and beers and always had evening entertainment. Hot meals were available for purchase and were delicious! There... More

Best meal we had walking The Great Glen Way for a week. Carrie, the cook served us a delicious, hot and tasty chicken balmoral for £7.50!! Simon, the receptionist also worth a mention -charming and helpful. Thank you to both! This hostel had lovely squishy sofas and free wifi in the public areas.

I recently stayed here with Haggis Adventures and the staff was genuinely friendly and appeared to go out of their way to make sure we all had a great time. Free WiFi, comfortable bunk beds and delicious homemade food. What's even better is that it's only a short walk to the town.
