Nice and clean, though you can only get very hot water in the bathroom which makes it difficult to do simple things like washing your hands. You will also want a car as relying on public transport makes things difficult. The staff were lovely and very willing to help.

The location is fabulous. The facilities are first rate, very clean. Watch out for the midges.

A delightful location and experience. Very quiet area accessible only after travelling along a narrow road for miles, but it's worth it!! No TV, no phone signal, no internet, no landline (not spotted). Peace and quiet. These premises have been recently updated and were comfortable, clean and a pleasure to visit. Our host Maria was perfect, friendly and helpful Highly recommended!

Brilliant location for walks in the Cuillin hills and surrounding areas on the south west. Just a few miles from Carbost and a great little pub. Staff were super friendly and knowledgeable about local walks and hill climbs. Not easily accessible without a car but you can hitch a ride from Carbost just fine. Loved my stay here and will be back to explore some more!


The staff was incredibly nice and helpful!
