I was absolutely delighted with my stay at Morag's Lodge. The welcome was very friendly, I was allowed to adjust my booking at the last minute, the 4 bunk room with private bathroom was ideal, the evening meal and breakfast were OK. A towel was only an extra £1. The bed was comfortable and the bunk strong so that it...

Visited on a short getaway with my boyfriend, we stayed for three nights and had a very nice time. Location is perfect for visiting Loch Ness, Inverness, Urquhart Castle and the Highlands, as well as other beautiful local glens and lochs. Fort Augustus is small but friendly, good chippy round the corner from the hostel and a petrol station/shop. The...

My husband and I stayed 5 nights in a private room. The room was basic but comfortable. Only thing I would suggest is putting a shelf beside the sink as there wasn't much room for toiletries. It is well priced for what it is. We had the buffet breakfast a couple of mornings. It was basic but very affordable. The...

A good hostel and fun, which seems to cater for many different travellers, good facilities and heating and catered well with food options. Good choice if you are a solo traveller, even the bunk beds were quite hi tech compared to some backpackers where i have stayed.

I went here as part of a Haggis Adventures Highland Tour and it's amazing. The beds are comfy, the food (chicken stuffed with Haggis for me) was amazing and the shower was exactly what I needed after a long day on the bus. I also left my jacket there and they have been so helpful in helping me send it...

Visited as part of a tour group. Had a great stay in this hostel. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The rooms were comfortable with clean en suite bathrooms. The food they offered was delicious and good value. They ran a "pub quiz" which was good fun too. All in all a great stay!

To start with, I chose Morag's because I had been there earlier and had we not got a reservation there, I might not have even chosen to go to Loch Ness that weekend. It was a a perfect place to relax and meet new people. We had booked the 4 bed dormitory to fit in 3 people(I happily paid the...

Since it was pouring during my visit, I had to stay a full day inside Morag's Lodge, enjoying free tea, coffee an wifi on the more than comfy sofas in the common area. :-) Staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms seem quite big for hostel rooms and fairly new. I'd definitely come back.
