3 night stopover

Great base for the Kintail area. For a hostel it is well equipped for £20 per night. Bring enough food at least for breakfast and lunches, good kitchen but can get busy. Kintail Lodge about 2 miles away provides a bolt hole for an evening meal if you wish. Drying room and showers. It is a hostel so you are sharing with 6-8 others

La estancia fue satisfactoria, he de destacar sobre todo la amabilidad y comprension del personal. Esperaron por la noche hasta que pudimos llegar, fuera del horario de cheking, por un problema de Corte de carreteras, sin ninguna pega, e incluso nos abrieron la cocina para nosotros solos, para que pudiésemos cenar. Tan solo y por ayudar a mejorar, estaría bien que la salida de agua de la ducha, individual, de la planta baja, no fuese fija.
