Stayed at The Smugglers Hostel whilst visiting the Glenlivet MTB Trails. What a fantastic base!! Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Great facilities for bikers (secure storage, bike wash facility, tools etc), hot showers, comfy beds and a fantastic wee common room. Free wifi is a bonus. Breakfast was superb. Has the ideal atmosphere for friends MTB trip but can't wait to come back with the family. Loved it!!
