The area is rich in history and heritage, with lots of amazing sites to visit including castles and ruins. Walk in the footsteps of whisky smugglers or relive the battle of glenlivet!

In the heart of the Speyside Malt Whisky Region the area has numerous distilleries to visit and amazing whisky to sample!, The hostel has great facilities for the outdoor enthusiast with a well equipped bike shed, complete with tools and spares. The outside tap and hose allow you to wash bikes and outdoor kit onsite and the drying shed ensures that all your gear is dry in the morning ready for your next day’s adventure!

Wonderful little hostel with excellent and clean facilities (kitchen, showers,toilets, common area...), medium sized dorms, super friendly staff, perfect quiet location in a tiny village with little shop and pubs/restaurants, right in the national park.

L'accueil était extra, l'hôte était très sympathique. L'auberge est située dans des locaux ayant un cachet certain.
