About Glen Nevis Youth Hostel

Glen Nevis Youth Hostel is a traditional wooden lodge located at the foot of Ben Nevis. The path to the summit starts almost from its front door.

Close to the end of Scotland's most famous long distance walk, the West Highland Way, and only three miles from the start of the Great Glen Way, Glen Nevis Youth Hostel is ideal for touring the stunning Lochaber area. Thrill seekers can enjoy skiing on the nearby slopes of Aonach Mor, while the Nevis Range allows for mountain biking, windsurfing and even paragliding.

Glen Nevis is the largest and longest established youth hostel in the Glen Nevis/Fort William area. Hosting hill walkers, climbers and backpackers at the foot of Britain's highest mountain, it has been providing quality budget accommodation for individuals, families and groups exploring the area since 1933!

All rooms, private or shared, have spectacular mountain views. The youth hostel also boasts spacious bathrooms and a superb refurbished kitchen and lounge, making it the cosiest place to relax with friends or family. WiFi access is free. Full catering is on offer for those who prefer to take the hassle out of getting a meal ready after a long day on the hills and a wide selection of beers and wines is available.

Accommodation Information

Here at Glen Nevis we have private rooms sleeping from 1-6 people and shared accommodation in rooms ranging from 8-16 people.

All our rooms, private or shared have spectacular mountain views and our youth hostel is undoubtedly the most scenically sited in the Lochaber area.

We cater for individual travellers from around the world, families, friends and groups throughout the year.

During winter there is also a bus service which departs each morning from the youth hostel to the Nevis Range in Torlundy. Here you can try your hand at skiing and snowboarding against the spectacular backdrop of Aonach Mor.

We are a fully licensed hostel and have been welcoming generations of hill walkers and thrill seekers to Fort William and surrounds since 1933, so when you book with us you can rest assured that we are committed to making your stay a memorable one.

Location Information

Located approximately 3 miles from the Fort William bus and rail stations, our youth hostel is nestled mid way up Glen Nevis, arguably one of Scotland’s most beautiful Glens. Having featured in the Harry Potter film series, Braveheart, Rob Roy and even the Highlander movies, you really don’t need to just take our word on this.

With Britain’s highest mountain literally right on the door step you will be hard pressed to find a youth hostel as well located.

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.
