The Steading

The Steading is a traditional Scottish farmstead lovingly converted to attractive hostel-style accommodation in 1995. We managed to get the sheep and cows out before we started the process, but you will see the swallows coming back year after year to nest under the eves. The Steading is a great place to enjoy the camaraderie of a shared kitchen and comfy spaces to chill out. 

The Steading is spacious, warm with rustic features. It sleeps up to 58.
