Had a great 2 night stay while on the 3 day Haggis Adventure! The hostel was so cosy and warm, felt instantly at home there. Rooms were clean, ensuite in rooms which was great! The dinner meals were amazing and healthy (and filling!) The atmosphere was fun and lively. Wifi was great and had a strong signal in rooms. Take a towel and padlock with you!! Only thing though was that the music in the bar went until 1am on both the Friday and Saturday night which made it difficult for those who wanted to sleep. Had a great time and would love to visit Loch Ness again!
