A hostel where to rest just like at home

That was the first feeling that took me when I discovered Nunton house : I'm actually at home ! The whole property is very warm and cosy, after several days on the road, it helps a lot. The kitchen has all the facilities needed, the beds are very comfy and we appreciated the ensuite bathroom. I really liked the location of the hostel : 5 min from the magnificent beach an very close to a very interesting cemetery. Very relaxing place.

Stayed as a group of 4 fishermen for a week - perfectly located for exploring north and south Uist and Benbecula. Excellent chats and local knowledge from Donald including great tips on fishing locations.
