About About this youth hostel

We welcome the recent announcement by the Scottish Government on the responsible lifting of restrictions and are delighted to be able to plan for the re-opening of our self-catering kitchens from 1st November. Drying room facilities are now available at many of our hostels but we would ask you to please contact the hostel team directly to allow them to manage your access. The health, safety and wellbeing of our guests, employees and the communities in which we operate remains our main priority at this time.

Reasons to visit

The youth hostel enjoys a beautiful setting deep in the heart of Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park.

Perfectly situated on the water's edge, the hostel sits on the West Highland Way and at the foot of Ben Lomond, Scotland's most southerly Munro. It's a popular choice with walkers seeking comfort after an hard day's trek and anyone simply looking to explore and enjoy the magnificent scenery of the National Park.

Relax in the lounge and soak up the views, take advantage of picnic tables in the grounds of the hostel overlooking the loch or indulge in of some of the activities available in the local area including water sports and fishing. 

For the less adventurous there are plenty of opportunities to explore the amazing scenery with a number of low level walks within easy reach of the hostel.
