    The Hostel was great and the proprietor was both friendly and helpful. Good kitchen facilities and toilet / shower. Definitely recommend (only complaint was that the hill up to the hostel was hard work after a long cycle!)

    Few places can offer this level of service and experience. Fiona and her brother Andrew were just amazing and kind, flexible and gentle. They offer to feed their horses and an amazing fireplace with Andrew giving advice and telling the history of his beautiful Skye island. Lovely recommended. Thank again Angelo
