Nestled between mountains and lochs in the heart of the Great Glen, 20 miles north of Fort William and 10 miles south of Loch Ness, the Great Glen Hostel is welcoming and comfortable place to stay when you're touring the Highlands. Both Urquhart and Eilean Donan castles are within an hour's drive and are easy day trips from here. Or take a ride on the mountain gondola at Aonach Mor (20 minutes drive) for spectacular views of Lochaber.
It is a great base for outdoor enthusiasts too: hillwalkers are spoilt for choice with 59 Munros in a 20 mile radius of the hostel, and paddlers can enjoy the rivers Spean, Garry, Roy and Moriston, all within easy reach. Watersports enthusiasts can paddle or sail on Loch Lochy and Loch Oich - boats and canoes can be hired locally. The Great Glen Way, a bike and hike route between Fort William and Inverness, is just a few minutes walk away.
If you are looking for an adrenalin rush we can organise white water rafting trips, canyoning, quad biking, abseiling and more for you. We also offer tailor-made outdoor activity/team-building packages for groups - please contact us for more details.
The hostel has cosy family rooms and dormitories, a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities, excellent drying room, TV lounge, internet access, secure bike and canoe storage, internet access and a hostel store. All bedding is provided and towels are available for hire.
