Let’s start with the most important part of any holiday: the accommodation.
Our Private Rooms: Your Personal Oasis
We've got seven private rooms that are mostly on the top floor, so you'll have all the privacy you need. Whether you're a couple, friends, or a whole family, these rooms are designed with care to give you a cosy and restful retreat during your stay.
When you arrive, you'll be greeted with a fully made-up room, complete with towels, to make you feel right at home from the get-go. Oh, and don't worry about having to pop to the bathroom to wash your hands; each room has its own wash hand basin for your convenience.
The toilet and shower facilities are shared among all our lovely guests, and you can find them on all three floors. They're kept squeaky clean and are just a hop, skip, and jump away from your room.
Our top floor offers six spacious private rooms. We've got two twin rooms for you to bunk up with your bestie, and three family-style rooms that are just perfect for you and your whole crew.
Speaking of our family rooms, you'll get one double bed, one single bed, and plenty of room for a travel cot or an extra bed for the little ones. We understand how important it is for everyone to have a comfortable stay, so we've got your back.
Accessibility is important to us. We want everyone to feel right at home, so we've made sure there's a private bedroom with twin beds on the ground floor. It's right next to a handy disabled toilet and shower, so no worries there. We're all about making your stay with us as amazing as possible!
To start your day off right, head to our main self-catering kitchen, where complimentary tea and coffee making facilities await. Feel free to grab a mug of your favourite beverage and take it upstairs to your private retreat.
Hostel Dorms: Where Friends and Stories Come Together
Looking for a warm, clean place to rest and recuperate? Our updated hostel dorms on the first floor are just the ticket! These dorms can snugly accommodate between 4 to 8 people, giving you the perfect social ambience.
You won't believe the views you'll get from your dormitory window – mountains all around! And don't worry about bedding – we’ve got you covered with fresh linens, duvets, and pillows for everyone. Need towels? No problem, you can rent them too. Plus, we've got storage boxes and shelves to stash away all your luggage and backpacks.
Charging your gadgets won't be a hassle either. Each dorm comes with at least one double power socket so you can juice up your cameras and phones with ease.
Now, let's talk facilities! On the same floor, we've got separate washrooms, along with a spacious mixed-sex shower room featuring seven cubicles. Even though all our dorms are mixed-sex, we do try our best to accommodate requests for female-only dorms whenever we can.
For the price of just £29 per night, you get a comfy bed in a shared dorm, and we even throw in a light breakfast to fuel your adventures. For the intrepid travellers among you taking on the Cape Wrath Trail, we offer flexible arrival dates (subject to availability), so you can plan your journey without any worries.
Just one small heads up – dorm beds are 100% non-refundable and need to be paid upfront. So please, take a peek at the full terms and conditions before locking in your reservation.
If you've got any group questions or special requests, no need to be shy! Just give our friendly hosts a shout, and they'll be more than happy to help you out.
So, what are you waiting for? Let's make your NC500 adventure unforgettable!
A Warm Welcome and Lodge Facilities
When you arrive, you'll be greeted with a warm and friendly reception area that's got everything you need to make your stay special. Right next to the dining room, we've got a lovely guest lounge where you can kick back with a good book or have some fun with board games. And when it's chilly outside, we light up the fire stove to create an inviting and relaxing atmosphere.
If you're into exploring, we've got a wonderful selection of local reference books filled with fascinating info about the walking trails, geology, and history of the local area.
Worried about staying connected? No problem! Enjoy our free WiFi, and if you're an EE SIM mobile phone user, you'll get blazing fast data broadband speeds of up to 70 Mbps on the terrace outside the lodge. Upload speeds go above 10 Mbps too!
For those times when you need some snacks or essentials, our shop is conveniently located right at the reception. We've got a range of goodies like snacks, cooking ingredients, soft drinks, alcohol, toiletries, books, and maps. We even stock dehydrated food and camping gadgets for serious hillwalkers and passing trailblazers!
We're super excited to announce our partnership with the famous Lochinver Larder, and we now stock a selection of their mouthwatering luxury pies in our shop. Trust us, after a long day tackling the Cape Wrath Trail, or even if you just want a break from cooking, treating yourself to one (or two!) of these pies is an absolute must.
Our self-catering kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel work benches, sinks, gas/electric cookers, microwaves, and large fridges - everything you need to cook up a storm! And don't worry about freezer space; we've got that covered too. We'll even provide boxes for storing any extra food you bring along.
There's another smaller kitchen available for you too. If you're part of a group, you can reserve either kitchen for your gang.
We know that adventurers enjoy the freedom to prepare their own packed lunches and evening meals, helping them save money to spend on exploring our beautiful region!
Our Dining Room
Perfect for socialising, this charming space features large solid pine tables that can seat around 45 people. When it gets a bit chilly outside, we've got a roaring fire in the stove to keep you warm and snug. Plus, you'll have stunning views over Loch Assynt and towards Quinag from the large window, and if you feel like enjoying your meal al fresco, there are French doors that lead to picnic tables.
Did we mention breakfast? We've got a self-service breakfast spread that includes cereals, toast and preserves, fruit juices, and of course, fresh coffee and tea. It's usually served from 8 am until 9.30 am, so you can fuel up for the day ahead.
We can't wait to make your stay one to remember!
