About About this hostel
Our small and friendly hostel offers self-catering accommodation for guests in both shared and private rooms. It's situated in the pleasant town of Inveraray beside Loch Fyne, the longest sea loch in Scotland and a superb location for exploring Scotland's southern Highlands and Islands.
Ideal for walkers, cyclists and bikers stopping over on the route to Oban, the Mull of Kintyre or the Islands. Or for those who just want to stay still and relax.
Inveraray itself has much of interest, including a superb castle and gardens, a historic jail and a modest hill walk to a stunning view. It's just a short drive to Crarae Gardens, a folk museum and a woodland walk. Inveraray has good shops and eating places.

Reasons to visit
Sitting on the banks of Loch Fyne, Inveraray is a classic example of an eighteenth-century Georgian planned town and an area of spectacular natural beauty.
Inveraray Castle, the neo-Gothic home of the Dukes of Argyll, sits on the edge of the town and there are numerous walks through its extensive grounds. The more adventurous can take on the steep ascent up to the Dun na Cuaiche, a monument and prominent landmark with spectacular views over the town, Loch Fyne and beyond.
The Old Town Jail is an award-winning museum that graphically illustrates prison conditions from medieval times up until the 19th century and is well worth a visit.
No visit would be complete without a visit to the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, a short car journey from the town and famous for its fine local shellfish. For craft beer lovers the Loch Fyne Brewery is also well worth a visit.
