What an amazing place visited a few years back as had fond memories of playing guitar in the garden till thon time in a beautiful part of Skye. The hostel has changed ownership and the place is spotless, more like a hotel than a hostel but with a lovely laid back atmosphere. The wee Jedi Huts in the huge garden are fantastic to stay for a cosy night for two with fairy lights in the rafters and a warm stove or you can sit outside and look at the stars. Theres a big glass dome to sit in too if midgies bother you. But hey shh dont tell everybody we want to go back next year and the next....
