We might be one hour from Portree, but our peninsula has its own distillery, beautiful Point of Sleat lighthouse with views over the Small Islands, sandy Camas Daraich beach, woodland walks and Sabhal Mor Ostaig Gaelic College with regular gigs and culture (10 mins walk from the hostel).

    Peaceful rural location. Cuckoo calling from trees in the morning. Walking distance to ferry (took us an hour and a quarter) - though hitchhiking also easy for that. Wonderful owner and manager fantastic too.

    We had a very comfortable stay at the Flora Macdonald Hostel, the warden was most attentive and very helpful. The kitchen facilities were limited, if the hostel at been full, the kitchen would be very cramped with only one kettle, one micowave and one sink and lack of bench space would make things be very difficult. As it happened the Indian family staying had a late breakfast and late dinner which fitted in with our eating times. The beds were very comfortable and plenty hot water.

    We had a great welcome from Max. The accomodation was very cheap but also everything was very old or broken. Perfectly adequate accomodation but not trhe best.
