Reasons to visit

Set in a romantic bay with beautiful coastal and mountain views, Broadford Youth Hostel is an ideal base for exploring the stunning Isle of Skye.

The Marble trail and Corry walk are within easy reach of the hostel and the famous Cuillin mountain range is just 15 miles away. For a more relaxing experience, the Irishman's Point is a short walk from the hostel with views over Pabay and Scalpay Islands and with Loch Carron and the Northwest Highlands looming in the distance. A boat trip from Elgol (about a 30 minute drive) towards Loch Coruisk is well worth considering.

Skye offers ideal sea kayaking opportunities for those with a more adventurous spirit and courses for all levels can be taken within close driving distance of the hostel.

Seals, otters and gannets are regularly seen diving for fish close to the hostel and local attractions include Armadale Castle and Clan MacDonald hosting a number of events across the year from craft fairs to music festivals. Discover local craftsmanship at Skye ceramics or Skye candles and take home a lasting reminder of your trip.
