Following the First Minister’s recent announcement regarding the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, Scotland’s lockdown remains in place. Regrettably this does mean we have to extend our temporary closure and with possible restrictions still in place for hospitality, we have taken the decision to remain closed until Thursday 27th May, inclusive.
Whilst we await further announcements we know the easing of measures will be implemented cautiously and gradually, and in late April there will most likely be a return to regionalised restriction levels that are regularly reviewed and updated.
However with the current information available, and subject to government guidelines and restrictions, we hope to commence the phased reopening of the Hostelling Scotland network from Friday 28th May 2021
We're looking forward to the day when we can safely welcome you back. In the meantime, we have to put the safety and wellbeing of our guests, teams and local communities first. If you love to travel but don’t want to feel like a tourist. If you want to escape the everyday and find adventure. If you want to live life like a local and discover Scotland’s great outdoors. If you want a warm welcome, a comfortable bed and a place to chill with delicious food, a local beer and an amazing view…
…we think you should choose Hostelling, and we look forward to welcoming you when the time is right and it's safe to do so!View our hostels
