Loved it. The common area was uncommonly lovely and comfortable to sit with tea, a view and a book. Great place to rest up along the West Highland Way.

very poor internet connection and no effort I could tell was made by staff to restore it when it went down. I was hoping to do a bit of writing on my blog while I visited this remote hostel, but when the internet went down I was unable to do so and so I drove elsewhere and did some sightseeing instead of what I had wanted to do.
