4   Clean, well appointed, beautiful setting. Mr. MacDonald was very friendly and welcoming. The setting is idyllic, looking over a pasture where his ponies graze, with the Sound of Sleat and the Highlands beyond. There is a well equipped kitchen, games, and an electric piano for amusement, plus free wi-fi. We heartily endorse the Flora MacDonald Hostel!  , age 60, American ()
4  Awe-inspiring location. Sleat is amazing...lots of options for beds (dorms, family rooms etc) and hostel owner keen to divulge local stories and history (especially on the Macdonalds!). A wee bit out of the way for us as we were travelling without a car but worth the trip - moreso if there's a group of you so you can pool your drinks and have your own private ceilidh!  ()
