Maureen & Kirsten comment on their Bunk House Stay: "Stayed one night in the bunkhouse. Clean, comfortable and lovely breakfast included. Hosts Shanti and Dougie very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. The b&b rooms in the house are lovely with a great view of the loch".

"My boyfriend and I stayed here after the first day of our walk along the West Highland Way. We were impressed with the friendliness and great hospitality of the staff. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was useful as it was the only place we encountered along the Way that had a kitchen. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and diverse. Overall very impressed and pleased with our stay! Thanks to the two owners!"
