          If I could give more than a 5, I would. 2 nights in the Woodman's Hut surpassed all our expectations. A thoroughly relaxing time off the grid doing absolutely nothing. The bush shower, peat BBQ, wood fired hot tub, the (albeit quite soft) box bed...More

          Good that you had the welcome surprise of the hostel being just for you. You might also have heard the call of the capercaille. They are around in the seventy acre wood right next to us. Come again do. David & Team Lazy Duck
