This week, Abernethy Bunkhouses said goodbye to their last guests, marking the end of an era. Not only has the hostel been home to many happy groups over the years, Patricia and Richard have been a huge part of Scottish Independent Hostels, giving up their time to promote hosteling across Scotland.
You'll be sadly missed by everyone at SIH and all your guests. Enjoy your "retirement" 😉!
To end the blog on a happy note, we still have wonderful hostels in the area:
