We stayed here and hiked for three days. The staff here are very helpful and informative. We went on a guided hike which was free with a chap from the AMC. He was incredibly knowledgeable and made the hike up to the ledge a real experience! The food is much better here than The Highland Centre. I really enjoyed dinner each night and the breakfast muffins are worth getting up for - despite aching calves. There is a real homely feel here with a very comfortable bed and fireplace lit (gas) Each evening. However my criticism is we stayed in the room dubbed Beech. We could hear absolutely everything going on in the staff room next door. I would never stay in that room again as we could hear drawers being opened, talking on the phone, etc they really need to do something about insulating the rooms as the walls are paper thin.
