Been here a few times over the winter period, every visit better than the last. A perfect balence of good yet not overbearing service makes you feel very comfortable. A large fire warms the dining hall. The food here is cracking, a nice varied spread...More

Very cosy and warm old building with good views over the mountains. Staff are very friendly and welcoming, and the food is amazing! First time trying haggis and it was very nice especially the whisky sauce. Will definitely return

Hi Archie, We do not have rooms as such, we are quite literally a bunkhouse which is 24 beds in one room but split into 3 sections of 8. Kind regards Tom
