    Very comfortable although oddly arranged bathroom. Easy walk to pubs and beautiful views of the bay. Only stayed here one night in way from Glasgow to Skye. Free wifi and hearty breakfast that was cheap.

    Stopped for one night at the start of a motorbike tour of Scotland with 3 friends from Switzerland. It was their first time in a youth hostel and the pernickety Swiss enjoyed it. Great location in a friendly town. Would visit again.
