Have a look at a map and you’ll see that this makes it the most ideal situation for exploring the Scottish Highlands.
bring a bike and cycle the scenery at either a civilised pace or a breakneck pace if you choose a mountain bike trail. Bring your binoculars for spectacular wildlife watching – there’s a real chance of a golden eagle!. Bring your rod and tackle for contemplative fishing. Or bring a large bag for all those Munros.
The hostel itself is friendly and relaxing. There are dorm rooms or private rooms if you prefer. The owners are welcoming and knowledgeable and just as keen on the outdoors as you are. Check out their fascinating blog and you’ll see what I mean.
Another enthusiasm of theirs is coffee. It features in great style on their website and clearly a cup of exceptional Italian Espresso will set you up for your adventurous day ahead.
