I and my son stayed in one of the rooms in the main house with use of the hostel during our Scottish adventure holiday this year. Ideal place for us as very close to outdoor activities. Top hospitality from Neil and Sue. Lots of places to eat out if like me not big on cooking after being out all day!!

Very welcoming with people taking on the GTO challenge and laid on free cake, tea & coffee. And they allowed me to charge my phone after being out of contact with my family for two days. Wonderful people

Was at the hostel with a group of friends as we were visiting the Highland Folk Museum. The facilities were first class and surpassed any previous hostels in which I've stayed. The hostel is set back from the main road, so there's little or no traffic noise. Instead, there is birdsong. I do hope I can revisit next year.

Stopped by for a night whilst on a cycle tour. Thoroughly enjoyed the chat about the state of cycling with Neil, top bloke. Hostel is well equipped with nice tidy facilities. Drying room was excellent and wood stove is a nice touch. Would go back. Cheers

Stayed at Newtonmore hostel for a couple of nights and it more than lives up to all the very positive reviews here.
