Argyll Backpackers Hostel might be the only example, certainly the only one I can think of, of a purpose built hostel. Normally they’re converted from chapels, mills, barns or buildings from other uses. But, in this case, Pam (the owner) has designed and built a modern, wheelchair accessible, homely and bright Hostel. It has a range of small and smallish rooms from 2 bed to 6 beds.
The on-line reviews and recommendations highlight Pam’s personal touch and local knowledge, particularly as a guide to the best of local attractions. I wonder if that might include a distillery?
This part of the Scottish Coastline is rightly popular with visitors, either passing through to get to Oban and the Isles, Bute, Arran, Islay, Campbeltown or even Ireland or settling in to explore the wilderness of wooded hills and the weaving in-and-out of the sea lochs.
The hostel looks out over Loch Fyne. Certainly, in this area your eyes are drawn to the water. There is good canoeing and kayaking. If you’re lucky you’ll be paddling with seals, porpoises or perhaps even basking sharks. Also, I’ll bet there’s some excellent seafood to found locally.
