I don't think you'll find the boat running much outside of those times, although that may change if Gordon has a long list of Challengers wanting to cross.
I can't comment on the availability of accommodation on the E side of the loch, but I would have expected more on the W side.
I'm sure you'll get a reply disagreeing with me...just hang around for a few minutes!
I've reluctantly booked in at the youth hostel in Braemar after searching high and low for an affordable b&b or hotel for my only bed of the walk this year. Most options I contacted were either too expensive, fully booked or only available for two night stays during Challenge week. Rucksacks is still open as a business but is booked out to a large group carried over from a covid cancellation last year. Moorlands Hotel is likewise fully booked all week. There is the option of the pods on the caravan park but a little overpriced for a single occupant in my opinion.
The youth hostel is fine Chris, I have stayed there before but I just fancied a bit of luxury and privacy for my one night of indulgence.
Hi. I have booked into the Ratagan Hostel and have a taxi booked to take me to my start point in Dornie. Wednesday start, and happy to share.
I was going to suggest Ivy Cottage in Braemar but they are a minimum 2 night stay too
