  • We do love our funky lounges at all our hostels, but our #InvernessStudentHotel might have the funkiest of them all! If you're visiting the capital of the Highlands, then check them out!
  • Back to Inverness for a while, where I'm volunteering in a local hostel in exchange for boarding! 3 weeks of cycling takes it out of a first time tourer so I'm glad for this opportunity to take it easy. This will also give me a chance to explore Inverness' surroundings with just myself and my trusty bike, leaving most of the weight behind. Maybe I can find some local MTB trails! Stay tuned— Moth.
