The cowshed is a cozy and homely hostel with a very hospitable host. We stayed here on our way up to Quiraing the next day, and were pleasantly surprised by the amenities. The rooms were extremely comfortable and well furnished with a locked cupboard for each occupant. Common area was large, clean and cozy, and provided cooking areas with cooking equipment as well. The host was a very friendly lady who even helped us after we had left. On the day after our stay, we had trouble finding an apartment and when we called, she offered us help and alternatives as well.

A really nicely done out modern hostel with a fantastic situation up on the hill overlooking Uig Bay. Convenient for ferry. Warm welcome and everything you need for a very good price
