You can expect a warm bed, a delicious meal and a great bit of patter when staying in our bunkhoose. The perfect place to stop and take stock along the NC500. Our hostel is a favourite of bikers taking the 500 miles in all its glory, so you’re sure to meet some like minded folk to chat to. We also often hold music nights, so if kicking back and listening to a bunch of talented musicians in a cosy bar sounds up your street, you know where to find us. We can’t wait to see you…

The Bunkhouse @ Invershin Hotel

March 2nd 2018

… beautiful beaches and rugged landscapes…

Here’s the thing. This is a wee hostel within a hotel. I know! Like a Russian doll of accommodation.  The Invershin Hotel is family run and very friendly. There are 2 twin and 2 triple rooms in teh hostel with shared shower and toilet. Unusually for a hostel, there aren’t self-catering cooking facilities but the food on offer at the hotel is top notch and all home made. 

Invershin is close to the East Coast of Scotland just north of Tain, just where the road dives inland towards the Highlands. This makes it a pretty good place to set off to explore the highlands and the coast. Situated close to the famous Falls of Shin and across the water from Carbisdale Castle, The Dornoch Firth with its beautiful beaches and rugged landscapes. I clearly remember being transfixed here by the salmon leaping up the river, which was a shame as I don’t think I looked enough at the view.
