It was beyond our expectation when we arrived at the remote old Garrison homestay. It is on top of a small hill with a great view. The hosts Tim and Kelly were friendly and warm. The room was spacious and comfortable, we had a good night sleep. The dinner and breakfast cooked by the couple were delicious. A tour of the place by Kelly was very informative and interesting, especially feeding of the animals and vegetable plots. Minimum 2 nights stay is recommended in order to explore the surrounding areas and trails.
Lovely warm welcome from Kelly and Paul, nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation was perfect, the location is spectacular. Kelly made us a superb home grown vegetarian meal and likewise Paul served us a delicious breakfast to set us up for the day's walk. It was cold and the rain was pouring down but Kelly still found the time to show us round the farm and tell us of the Jacobite history of the garrison. We admire all the hard work Kelly and Paul are putting into their passion and wish them every success.
We look forward to coming back next year with our family and know we are assured of a warm welcome.
This is a real treasure! Our hosts were welcoming, happy to answer all our questions and make sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. We had a stopover on our WHW walk and Highlander vastly exceeded our expectations. Prompt pick up from the pier, would highly recommend Kelly' s delicious home cooked dinners delivered to the room, excellent facilities, quality brekkie and packed lunches. Great ingredients and super hospitality. Shame we weren't staying for longer.
We stayed at the Garrison during our West Highland Way walk. We were relocated from a bunkhouse which really was a stroke of luck. Kelly was so welcoming. She gave us a tour of the little farm her and her husband have created and some history of the farm buildings and its links with the Jacobite rebellion. Kelly cooked us a delicious venison stew made with rowan berries from the land around the farm. We were greeted by 2 geese in the morning, ate a delicious hearty breakfast and were ready for the next leg of our walk. The accommodation was lovely and the views out of the window spectacular.
Off the beaten track - 15 miles down a dead end road but a wonderful location and we couldn't have been made more welcome by Kelly who cooked us some very nice meals and gave us a tour of her small holding. We really hope we can make it back one day for a longer stay. Simon and Kathy
