Our bunkhouses provide simple, no frills accommodation in amazing settings. Perfect for chilled out holidays with family or active breaks with friends where mountain biking, walking or water sports are on the agenda. With very few local amenities within proximity everyone mucks in with cooking and meals are enjoyed around a huge dining table. Evenings are rounded off sat outside watching the stars or with feet up in front of the fire.
We also have bothies, which offer very basic accommodation - often in spectacular locations, these are the perfect escape for those wanting to get away from the trappings of modern life. Pack as if you are camping but no need to bring the tent.
All prices shown are for 2015. To book any of the below bunkhouses/bothies please contact the Holidays Team by phone or email. To find out about the other bunkhouses/bothies the National Trust has to offer please click here.
