Visitors Book
The But & Ben represents the very top end of hostel-style accommodation, and is extremely popular with smaller groups and families.
Located about 200m down the road from the main bunkhouse towards Portnalong harbour, it is completely self-contained and can sleep up to four people in comfort on bunk beds.
The bedroom has two built-in bunkbeds with individual reading lights, and the toilet and shower room is situated off the central hallway.


The spacious kitchen/living room is fully equipped with an electric cooker, fridge & microwave, and all pots & pans, crockery and cutlery, etc, are provided.


There is plenty of room for four people to eat together at the dining table, and cosy seating beside the fire.



You can have meals or a cold beer at the picnic table outside, and relax and watch the world go by with panoramic views over crofts and moorland to Arnival, and the Cuillins in the distance.


Now rennovated to the highest standards, the building actually dates from the 1920's and was originally a shop where settlers from Harris and Lewis sold their tweed and knitwear.
