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.
