A cold winter kayak trip to Scotland. Superb modern hostel with excellent facilities, worth a visit. The kitchen, dining room, lounge and drying room are excellent and would be difficult to beat. Could do with some sharp knives in the kitchen, bed lights weren't working and lack of sockets so bring a plug bar. Paying for WiFi in this day...

Warm welcome and ideal facilities for cyclists. Secure place to leave bikes, really good drying room, large and relaxing lounge and dining room. Rooms spacious, clean and warm. Beds were already made up when we arrived, with towels provided. Best Western Hotel is a 5 minute walk away, and although very quiet does really good pizza and a good breakfast!

Clean and tidy youth hostel tucked away at the edge of the village . Next to the park with a short( or long if you want to ) woodland walk next door. Breakfast is available as is packed lunches if ordered. Rooms are basic but as I expect from a UK youth hostel.

I enjoyed the stay in the hostel. It was clean, tidy, with very-well equipped self-catering kitchen. There was a shop with basic items (including food) and possibility to order meal, whether breakfast or dinner.
