Hi Ian....thanks for booking with us for the first time, & pleased that you've shared with others on how Ardenbeg is so well suited to active outdoors-y groups like yours. Re you other comments, as advised to you directly in my follow up email, the odour from the boiler proved to be due to a tiny leak inside it's workings...

Easy to find, competitively priced bunkhouse/hostel accommodation, clean and tidy throughout with all the facilities you need. Useful having a drying room too. Keith is a really friendly bloke and showed us around then left us alone to settle in. A very relaxed set up and perfect for our needs.

Stayed here whilst on a winter mountaineering course in the Cairngorms, over a weekend. Staff and owner were very friendly. Facilities are basic but well equipped and perfect for anyone out enjoying the outdoors. We had dinner cooked for us each night which was a nice touch after a long day in strong wind and snow. Would defiantly stay again....

Stayed for one night with my family. The bunk house was clean with a good kitchen space. The shower was temperamental and we gave up and used another one. Regardles of that the showers were well appointed and the beds were comfortable. Would recommend for backpackers, walkers, ramblers, climbers and large groups on a budget stay.
