Die sehr nette, vielsprachige Mitarbeiterin war eine schöne Überraschung. Es war sehr familiär. Danke für den Tipp mit Urquart Castle. Ein kleiner Verbesserungsvorschlag: eine Lampe im Durchgang zum Kamin-Familienraum wäre sehr hilfreich.

We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us at Loch Ness Backpackers! We take our ale selection very seriously and are glad to hear you appreciated it. We have endeavored to support Scottish brewers by stocking only Scottish produced beer and ale. In fact we have over 25 different ales on hand so our guests can keep touring, even whilst sitting in our cosy bar! Safe Travels, Patrick
