A Girl's Hiking Weekend at Loch Ossian Youth Hostel

Travel bloggers Yvette Morrissey (Wayfaring Kiwi) and Kathi Kathleimer (Watch Me See) took a break from city life and visited the Highlands one Autumn weekend. They switched off their mobile phones and stayed at Loch Ossian Youth Hostel. Yvette has written a blog about their stay, which is a must read...

"When my friend Kathi from Watch Me See suggested we head away for a girls hiking weekend, I jumped at the opportunity. We both needed a break from our busy lives in Edinburgh and Glasgow, and so we headed north to the Scottish Highlands. Our chosen destination was the remote Loch Ossian on the north eastern edge of Rannoch Moor, in the heart of Scotland. Our accommodation was the eco-friendly Loch Ossian Hostel, run by the non-profit charity, Hostelling Scotland.

We spent a wonderful weekend hiking, star-gazing, reading, drinking whisky and catching up in the beautifully remote loch-side setting in the Grampian Mountains."
