Todmorden, England, United Kingdom
October 14, 2002
I was not bothered much whether I stayed here or Lochranza, though I might well have chosen the latter for its proximity to Sannox where my walk would start, but the bus timetables decided the matter for me as I was on a fairly late ferry from Ardrossan.
Youth hostels are changing all the time and I should doubtless be out of date on some points but the photos on the current web site confirm that the very pleasant building is very much the same. It is very pleasantly situated near the shore, as the address suggests. It is unfortunate that the midges seem to find it attractive as well. It is near a bus stop and the anti-clockwise circular service provides easy access to Brodick, Goat Fell and other walks.
