I came here as part of a Haggis tour group. The staff were very friendly, food each night was lovely and they put on a... pub quiz for us. Ensuite to each dorm and the bathroom was so clean! I'd definitely stay here again.read more
We stayed here as part of our Haggis Tour of Scotland in a 6 bed dorm. It also had an en-suite. We didn’t have dinner... with the rest of the group at the lodge as there were no vegan options so ate out. Came back later that night for trivia which was fun. Most people opted to have breakfast included in their stay but we used the self catering kitchen which was not very well equipped at all. Could only find a couple of bowls and a teaspoon for breakfast.read more
This hostel is £27 a night and has a live band/ pub on the main level that blasts music all night. Coming from a long... day of hiking the only thing I wanted was a quiet place to sleep and this was not it. I literally could hear the screams and pounding through my earplugs all night......read more
I was there with Haggis Adventures for 2 nights. The hostel was clean and the food they served was good and cheap. It... has an own pub with good prices. In the evening they played games. The hostel is only a 10 minutes walk away from Loch Ness. To start a tour around the lake, this is a good place. The staff was also very nice. I can recommend the hostel.read more
Great place, beautiful location, just outside of a lovely city. We had a great stay in Morag's Lodge: the bed was... confortable, the shower warm, the breakfast very tasty. Even baked beans and warm porrige! Very kind staff. In my opinion the nicest place in the Great Glen Way.read more
I've stayed at Morag's twice, and I have loved it both times. The rooms are quite comfortable, with a bathroom in every... bunk room and some good private rooms available. The staff is incredibly friendly, and the breakfast and dinner options are cheap and delicious, with huge portions. The guest's kitchen is well stocked, if that's more your thing. The on-site pub always has fun stuff going on, and being right by the banks of Loch Ness means you get some decent views. If I'm ever back in the area, this is where I'll stay.read more
