“Amazing wee gem of a bunkhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

We have just got back after a fantastic stay at the poorhouse. We had been on a girls weekend to climb Ben loyal. We arrived to such lovely owners Roy and Isobel who completely went out of their way to make us feel at home. After an amazing climb on loyal we arrived back to the woodburner roaring and Isobel's delish walnut cake, what a lovely touch. The poorhouse had everything we needed and was lovely and cosy after a hard day walking. Had a great sleep in the very comfortable bunks. The poorhouse was equipped with lots of books, DVDs, games and CDs, just wish we were there for another night. Already planning our next trip to climb Ben hope and can't wait to go back. Can't recommend it highly enough.
