Please Note

As from 30 October 2017 By The Way will be closed (all our accommodation) until Mid March 2018.

We will, however, take bookings for groups of 12 or more, in the hostel, as well as groups who have already got bookings with us. For further information please send us an email:


Camping area outside Shower Block


The cheapest option, not surprisingly, is camping. We provide you with a piece of grass and you provide the tent and everything else you need. The campsite facilities include shower and toilet block, pot wash/cooking area (you need to bring your own cooking/eating utensils),  good drying room, undercover bike shelter and laundry facilities.

Please see our Camping page for more info.

Common room inside our 4-star Hostel


You will find more comfort still in our purpose built 26 room 4-star Hostel. We have a range of choices from 2 bed twin rooms to 6-bed family rooms. There is a spacious kitchen area for cooking and a large comfortable common room to relax in. The Hostel also has free Wi-Fi for all guests.

Please see our Hostel page for more info.

Hobbit House

Hobbit Houses

Our newly installed Hobbit Houses offer unique and comfortable accommodation at an affordable price. They can sleep 4 people (1 double and 2 single beds), and are equipped with a microwave, fridge, kettle, TV and heater.

Please see our Hobbit Houses page for more info.



For those wanting to stay a bit longer our two bedroom and three bedroom holiday chalets provides a great central base for anyone wanting to walk the West Highland Way, climb a few Munros, or perhaps see a bit more of the Scottish Highlands and Trossachs National Park. The holiday chalets are available for short and long stays, please see our Chalet page for more info.

Trekker Huts

Trekker Huts and Camping Cabins

For a bit more comfort you can leave the tent in its bag and spend a night in one of our Camping Cabins or Trekker Huts – under a wooden roof instead of a canvas one, and sleep on a soft mattress! Our huts are heated and sleep up to 5 people – a great wet weather option for campers.

Please see our Trekker Huts and Camping Cabins page for more info.


Motor Home Park

We  have 15 parking bays with full facilities. Please see our Motorhome Park page or call us on 01838-400-333 for more information.
