About Chase The Wild Goose Hostel
With friendly environment and beautiful surroundings. The hostel is located at Banavie, close to the Caledonian Canal with the Lochy Bar and Moorings Hotel just a stones throw away for meals and refreshments after a long day on the hill or touring the Scottish Highlands.
Has 42 beds in a mix of double, twin, family and dormitory accommodation, providing for the needs of individuals, families, backpackers and small groups. Theres a small self-catering kitchen should you want to cook your own meals, but you can buy our famous 'All-You-Can-Eat-Anytime' Continental Breakfast for just a few pounds. You can eat it any time, even before you go to bed. Being a little out of town we hope to offer a better nights sleep before your energetic day on the hills than perhaps you might receive in a town centre establishment.
The hostel is also a popular stop-over for enthusiasts on the 3-peaks challenge, walkers of the Great Glen Way and West Highland Way and caters for visitors to the Mountain Bike challenges nearby, water sports enthusiasts and can even organise a mountain guide to take you up Ben Nevis. Backpackers from around the globe have enjoyed their stay.
To top all this, the area is renowned for having the best views of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. We can direct you to the best access route up the mountain or even arrange a Mountain Guide for you.
If you are less energetic, visit Neptunes Staircase or ride the famous Jacobite Steam Train featured in the Harry Potter films, as the 'Hogwarts Express'. The West Highland Line features as one of the Worlds greatest railway journeys.
Come and experience this amazing place...! Our testimonials show us to be one of the best hostels near Ben Nevis.
Please note: You can modify or cancel your booking up to 7 days before arrival day, when only the first nights fees shall be charged. If cancelled or modified later, or in case of no-show, the full amount will be retained,
