Welcome to the homely comfort of the Knoydart Foundation Bunkhouse on the stunningly remote peninsula of Knoydart on the west coast of Scotland, reachable only by boat or a long hike. Renowned for its spectacular rugged grandeur, secluded beaches and blissful tranquillity, Knoydart is a haven for hill walkers, mountain bikers, kayakers, mountaineers and wildlife enthusiasts.
