The hostel is nice, but far away from the next town and bus. It's not clear for everyone that you have to bring your own food (including breakfast!). The owner of the hostel didn't arrive on the first day. On the second day, he was there but only for maintenance and didn't enter the building. On the third (and last) day he came in just for 'collecting money'. I was there by public transport (to Kirriemuir and then by taxi). I had luck that there were two french guys with a car.

Greeted on arrival , albeit that the Hostel isn't staffed. Given free wood for the stove.

Stayed a few weeks back, lovely vibe. It doesn't have staff floating about constantly (which is sound) that gives a more private relaxing experience. Wee log fire which was constantly on, brilliant.

excellent spot for walking - nice circular routes available - second time there - so that says something
