Rowardennan hotel bunkhouse
The hotel is a nice old building on the shores of the loch. Its a little south of the village so it's a bit of a trek to the shops, but its right on the West Highland Way.
The Bunkhouse is a plastic portacabin split into 4 separate rooms, each with 1 double bunk.
This would be very handy if in a pair, I was lucky enough not to be sharing.
The interior is pretty austere: sturdy bunks and shelves handmade from MDF and a low energy lightbulb with no lampshade. It has power points, a window and fresh clean bedding.
The shower is good and water hot.
Problems are the whole structure seems to squeak and rumble when people move around and it's generally a bit grim, but its clean.
The Clansman bar is a large converted barn on the side of the hotel.
It has traditional wooden beams and stags heads on the wall but has been modernised with IKEA style furniture and T-bars serving Stella (no real ales).
There's a pretty meaty sound systems, knocking out indie/rock music and Neighbours playing on the plasma screen.
It reminded me of Newquay, albeit without the Scousers and vomit.
I think there may have been a more traditional bar in the hotel that I only saw in the morning
I had a fish and chips, which was pretty good and up to the general standard of Scottish pub grub. It really hit the spot, bearing in mind that after slogging it 15 miles from Dymen with a monster hangover a Halal fried road kill would have nailed it.
The staff were nice and helpful and no complaints about the breakfast.
