If you are searching for a peaceful retreat with beautiful views in an area where you can see Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles and many other birds and wildlife, and with opportunities for walking, cycling and other outdoor activities this is the place for you.

Location was fantastic. Staff friendly and helpful. Comfort and facilities good. No locks on doors but lockers provided for valuables in rooms. Ample space downstairs. Could not get downstairs bathroom to lock which prevented me from using it! Otherwise good,

Good location on Loch Erisort. Don't rely on the Erisort Inn for food, their kitchen was closed and in August! Arrived at hostel after 4pm, so cafe was closed. Reasonably stocked shop was open until later 5pm or 5.30pm?

As we were unable to lock our room door when we left our room we have given a poor rating for security. Despite this we would stay again. Enviro. pract. -not a criticism, our stay was just far too short!) It was just as well we had a record of what we had paid online and what we were still due to pay otherwise we would have had to call someone rather than just leave our payment in the envelope provided. This method of payment involved a great element of trust and was much appreciated.
