Reviewed December 2, 2008

The Knoydart Foundation Hostel (in Inverie village on the Knoydart penisula, on the west coast of Scotland), is VERY flippin REMOTE... but Knoydart is AMAZING, you should all go, and the Hostel is a cheap and very cheerful of doing so!

The weather up in that part of Scotland is - to be fair - a little bit unpredicable, and even a tad rainy and cold at times... but Knoydart TOTALLY makes up with it with beautiful panoramas, really friendly people, loads of interesting wildlife, a nice little pub, and being SO chilled and quiet.

The Hostel (which is owned by the community) itself is simple, but has everything: full equipped self-catering kitchen, comfy rooms of various sizes (from 2 up to 10), a very cosy lounge with a real fire and GREAT showers (both of which you REALLY appreciate after a long walk), and really helpful staff... all for a bargain-ous £14/night!

I'd add: there were several other (pricier) guesthouses around, which I can't comment on, but which you might want to check out if you're looking for something a bit more upmarket.
