Stayed at the bunkhouse way back in April of this year and only just remembered to write a review!
But more than glad to stick to my word and give a cracking review because Jock was a smashing host who went the extra mile for me and my party.
Booked about a month in advance for a party of ten, but was a bit unsure about telling Jock we were on a Stag Night (I was best man, so dealt directly with Jock though out)
When we arrived of course he sussed us out, but he was totally cool with it. He even stuck around late because we didn't manage to arrive until 9pm. He was really friendly and helpful from the get go, and when we got in to the bunkhouse it was SPOTLESSLY CLEAN. Everything worked perfectly, and it was super comfortable.
And yes, I'm afraid to say, we did have one or two drinks late in to the night, but nothing major, and I'm pretty sure we didn't disturb any of the other guests. In any case, Jock was again friendly and helpful the next morning, and he didn't chase us out even though we were slightly late checking out by about ten minutes.
Then , we wanted to do a walk round one of the local hills, but it was closed for major improvements to the path, but I hadn't picked up on this online. So, thinking our Stag day plans were thwarted, Jock stepped in and reccommended another, even better walk over the peak of one of the Lomond Islands, which turned out to be absolutley amazing - so much fun! and we would have missed it if it wasn't for Jock's helpful and free advice!
Great place to stay, great place to visit, great fun, very clean. GREAT price too, very surprising Excellent.
