Great situation with wonderful views over the loch. Large double room. Very comfortable and kitchen well-equipped. Re environmental practices this may reflect what is available in the Outer Hebrides.Composting certain food waste could be considered. Also recycling plastic containers and trays.

Ravenspoint is an exceptional hostel in an exceptional place. It is small and intimate with great views over the loch and access to great walks and eagles flying. It is home to an very good museum where we wished we had more time to spend to read in the reference library. We stayed 3 nights and have already recommended it to friends. it is community run and only I would say , I would love to see all hostels have a compost bin!

A beautiful location and very peaceful. Very friendly and honest staff. Comfy bed and hot shower. Washing facilities too which were much appreciated. Cafe is self service and runs on an honesty box system. Shop had everything we needed for a few days. Beware shop and cafe closed on Sundays! Very interesting museum pieces too.
