I stayed at this hostel in September 2013 and loved every minute. It appears there are more than 1 route to get to the hostel and judging by reviews, both stunning. I accessed the hostel just north of Ullapool. Getting to this hostel is part of the experience, one of which I've never experienced before. The landscape along the way is breathtaking - lochs and mountains in every direction. Equally beautiful is the hostel surroundings. I stayed in the dorm room which was more than adequate. The kitchen is roomy and well stocked for self-catering and the eating area is very rustic and comfortable. The host was very knowledgable, welcoming and friendly and was most helpful. I enjoyed the walk down to the hostel as I did walking to the shore where I was able to sit, relax and watch a seal and sea birds. Other guests were very charming, social and interesting, who along with the host, made the stay really enjoyable. Day trips to the Summer Isles can also be organised from here which were amazing. This hostel is a gem. It is sad to think it might close.

This adds to the special 'off the beaten track' appeal but makes the hostel unsuitable for wheelchair access. ... more less
