About Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel

Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel is an atmospheric old shooting lodge in the heart of Cairngorm National Park providing an ideal base for year-round activities, including hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, pony trekking, watersports and fishing.

Most activities take place on the Rothiemurchus Estate, a fabulous area with many easy paths through the Caledonian Pine forest. The Loch Morlich Watersports Centre and a large beach are close by and many of our activity holidays are based there. For something different, visit the Reindeer Centre, where you can feed and learn about these friendly free-roaming animals.

The youth hostel has great facilities, including a range of multi-share and private rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, bike store, drying room, internet and WiFi access. Cooked breakfasts, packed lunches and full evening meals are also available.

Dogs are now welcome at Cairngorm Lodge, for a small fee, when guests book a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is allocated.

Location Information

Outdoor activities near the youth hostel include hillwalking, mountain-biking, skiing and snowboarding, clay pigeon shooting, watersports and visits to castles. The funicular railway is a great way to the top of the Cairngorm mountains if you want to see the spectacular views without the hike.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 3 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
