We had an amazing stay here! Everything was clean and Nicola was there if you needed anything! She gave us great tips for a local swim spot and offered to drive us to the station so we wouldn't miss our train! It was exactly the perfect place for some rest after active days! Roy Bridge has a good connection to Fort William and Glen Nevis, but it is also worth having a look at the East Highland Way, which passes by the back of the hostel! Definitely looking forward to our next visit!
