It was my very first stay in a Hostel and to be honest I wasn't too sure what to expect, however we were absolutely delighted with our stay at Morag's. The accomodation is flexible enough to cater for different group sizes and budgets, but as it was just the two of us we opted for a double room with private bathroom.
It was the end of September 2013 and there was a 'bit of a chill' in the air, but on arrival we noticed that Morag's had the heating on in the public areas - there was a lovely warm, cosy feel about the place.
Our room was clean and warm, the bed was comfortable and the power shower the next morning was wonderful.
We opted to dine in for both dinner and breakfast, but there is a self catering kitchen if you want to do your own thing. As it was a Sunday night we had a wonderful Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding and the continental breakfast the next morning was lovely.
There were a couple of Haggis tours in and 4 'retired' Munro baggers cooking there own so we opted to eat our dinner in the bar with a 'light refreshement'
There are lots of comfy big sofas dotted about to 'surf the net', chat to (new/old) friends or to read quietly.
What I enjoyed about Morag's was the relaxed air that it had about it, the staff were friendly and helpful and even though it was busy we thoroughly enjoyed our stay...
