….sleep uncomfortably close to the Monster…..!
re-opens Thursday 29th March 2018 – taking bookings now!
We are wonderfully located right on the shores of Loch Ness! You can just stroll down to the Loch and paddle in the lapping waves…… but beware ….. there is talk of a MONSTER !! as well as her, we also offer a great hostel to stay in – fabulous views, comfy dorm beds, extensive kitchen for your pleasure ! big and bright lounge-dining area and a friendly relaxed vibe that welcomes Backpackers, Cyclists, Great Glen Way-sters, Canoeists and of course – the average budget traveller. Busses from Inverness to Skye and Fort William stop right at our door several times per day, plus we have ample car-parking and a handy shore to beach your boat on, should you be arriving by boat! Sounds great so far…..but we must warn you that we do have probably the WORST internet connection in the world ! but we make up for it in other ways!
