We are just back from a 4 day trip up North staying at The Stationmasters Hostel.
Our lack of a car meant we were looking for a place to stay near transport links...and this couldn't be nearer with Stromeferry station right on the doorstep.
Excellent location for exploring the local forests, and visiting Plockton and Achmore, the nearest villages.
The hostel itself is right on Loch Carron with beautiful vistas over the loch and hills beyond.
We had a double room which was simply but nicely furnished. The bathroom facilities were shared but very clean and modern - the shower was great!
The hostel provides breakfast: toast, cereal, porridge and tea and coffee.
The shared kitchen facilities have everything you could need to prepare your packed lunches or evening meals.
The shared lounge is very cosy with a wood burner-heater, sofas, games and even a CD collection and hifi!
The hosts, Kath and Ewan, were welcoming, laidback and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Their attitude and enthusiasm for the area really add to the experience of a stay here.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.
