Jim was very communicative and accommodating. He provided towels even though it was not part of the package and was very flexible for check-in/check-out times. The space is truly wonderful. I just kept thinking how great the space would be for a family (or two) looking for adventure in Scotland or a group looking to explore the whiskey trail (or both). The River Spey, bike trails, coast, and Cairngorm National Park are very close. Three whiskey distilleries are within walking distance; several more within 20 minute drive. The space is newly renovated with amazing amenities: washer with dryer, double oven, two toilets, two showers, and a always ready boiling hot water tap. It is also separate from Jim's residence with its own entrance giving privacy and the convenience of entering late without disturbing anyone. The dining room table and backyard also makes it good for large groups. There's also great airflow if the front and back doors are open.
Besides the space, Jim was a very gracious host. He invited my partner and I for a couple drams of whiskey at his place as we chatted about Scotland, politics, life experiences, etc. It was a very relaxing end of the day and he was very open with his opinions and perspectives. He also runs a business taking groups out for outdoor activities from kayaking to paddle boarding to mountain biking to many others. There's a discount for the guided activities if staying at the bunkhouse, but unfortunately, my partner and I were there for only one night after visiting a distillery. But I would highly recommend if people are looking to get away from commercial tourist areas and enjoy the natural parts of Scotland or to experience the great Scottish tradition that is whisky or Scotch, but never whiskey.
