Stayed here on cycle tour of Highlands. Lovely little place, right in middle of town, with good kitchen, bike shed, decent wifi, pleasant and social kitchen/social area, and helpful friendly staff. Recommended. (Be aware, though, that the staff are not 24 hours. If you arrive after 7pm, you may need to call someone to come and let you in!)
