This was a wonderful base for hiking in the Ballachulish, Kinlochleven, and Glen Coe, Scotland area. The hosts were friendly and were knowledgeable about the local trails and buses. The rooms and beds were comfortable. The breakfasts were great (the host has been a finalist in porridge making competition). There is a common room with TV and enough space to hang out with our larger group. The house itself is a stone house built in 1885.
There is a Coop grocery store and a pub with decent food within a block or so.
Only one room has a bathtub, but that's the room we had.
