“I,ll be back.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

What an excellent place to stay. I have stayed in the Hostel several times and would highly recommend it, comfy beds, lovely hot showers and a nice big kitchen area, and very reasonably priced. An ideal base for bagging the local Munros or somewhere to stop over if walking ( or running ) the West Highland Way, where the Hostel gets it name from, it is literally "by the way". I am going to try one of the trekker huts or Hobbit cabins next time, they look really cool. Site has a nice wee shop to stock up your supplies.

A great place to stay after a long day's running or walking, after all there is nothing better than a good hot shower and a comfortable bed to sleep in. The facilities are good and it's very reasonably priced. I will always use By The Way when I'm in the area.

Just spent a few days at bytheway, i visit this site quite a lot, tried the new motorhome park and found it perfect, the tv point and free wi-fi are an added bonus.
The owners have put a lot of effort into making it a great place to stay, and i will definitely be returning soon.

Very nice little site. We stayed in one of the camping cabins which was very small, but we made it work. Luckily our little heater worked, but our friends in the cabin next door weren't so lucky. The kitchen is in desperate need of an upgrade, but was at least clean. The drying room was excellent!!

Many thanks for your comments. I would like to apologise about the heater that did not work in your friends' cabin. We would gladly have moved the people to another cabin if we had known. The heater has now been replaced. Kirsty

Staff very accommodating and friendly
Location excellent for walkers
In one of the cabins it was lovely and clean and had a small but pretty inefficient heater and as it was a very cold night I was glad i had a warm sleeping bag
Would certainly recommend for fellow walkers

Room Tip: Have a warm sleeping bag in chalets if cold

Stayed in one of the Hobbit Houses - can't fault them as they have everything you need - kettle, microwave, T.V. and heating.
These would be ideal for families with young children as the single beds in them are a touch too small for great comfort if you are walking the WHW without children.
Nice and handy for the Green Well store and trains/buses

Room Tip: Don't rent if you are 6ft and above for the single beds. Go for one of the bunkhouses.

I try to write balanced reviews, but I'm really struggling to find fault with By The Way. From the first phone call to the initial welcome to helping us out during our stay (2 nights in January 2013), staff, accommodation, cleanliness, value for money. All perfect!
