Hi, I also had a few attempts to get in touch with Jock at Balmaha Bunkhouse. There is an online form you can complete but I had several attempts before this submitted correctly. I tried ringing and leaving a message too. We got there eventually, it was frustrating but he did ring back. I didn't realise that there is also a YHA hostel there too, you may get a quicker response from them.
