Auberge dans le milieu de nul part, seul accès à pied en vélo ou en train. Magnifique endroit pour débuter un trek ou pour dormir en cas de fortes pluie. Attention pas de douche, ni de magasin (apporter la nourriture) Par contre paysage magnifique et plaisant.

I absolutely loved Loch Ossian - although we had a bit of an adventure getting there! A little more guidance about getting there would definitely be helpful for hapless travelers like myself. Beautiful setting, warm and cosy.

Jan the warden was very friendly and helpful.Everything was clean and tidy with a big warm fire going which was greatly appreciated on such a cold and wet day. Looking forward to my next visit.
