Summer WH Meet- Kyle of Tongue hostel 28th /29th july

A few silly questions... Are there basic facilities for campers, like showers, toilets, available? If not I guess we will be allowed to use the hostel? (peeing in the bush behind the building is not my idea of spending Saturday night :wink: ) And is camping free or charged?

We might come for one night (Kevin can't take Friday off, I'm afraid), to tackle Foinaven if weather's good. Hope to see you all again! :D

The grounds at the moment are been turned in to a holiday park so hopefully there will be toliets and showers . At the moment there is no charge for camping but thought them that do could give a donation to Mountain Rescue . You of course can use the toliets , showers ect . Looking forward to seeing you both on the sat . Anne :D

Anne

I would like to come to this but will probably want to tag some extra days on and bring the motorhome, is there enough parking as I remember it being fairly small for parking unless in a field of course which my MH wont like :shock: :( Maybe the new owners have upgraded it? May just park somewhere else and just use bikes from the MH.

The Ben Loyal is great drink and food, sells Red Skye :wink:
