About Chase The Wild Goose Hostel

You can now enjoy a FREE breakfast* as well as a friendly atmosphere at Chase The Wild Goose Hostel in Fort William. The hostel is located at Banavie, close to the Caledonian Canal. The Lochy Bar and Moorings Hotel are just a stones throw away for meals and refreshments after a long day on the hill or touring the Scottish Highlands.

THE HOSTEL has 42 beds in a mix of double, twin, family and dormitory accommodation, providing for the needs of individuals, families, backpackers and small groups. There is a small self-catering kitchen should you want to cook your own meals, but you can also enjoy our Free Continental Breakfast (in 'Superior' rooms). 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.

OUR GUESTS - 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 organize a mountain guide to take you up Ben Nevis. Backpackers from around the globe have enjoyed their stay.

BEN NEVIS - To top all this, the area is renowned for having the best views of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.

'HOGWARTS EXPRESS' - 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'.

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 charged. NOTE: FULL PAYMENT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY PROCESSED 7 DAYS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL, so card details must be kept up to date. Groups of 8 or more guests - full payment is required 28 days prior to Arrival.

If planning to arrive when Reception is closed between 10:00 hrs and 17:00 hrs or after 22:00 hrs (but BEFORE 23:00 hrs) you MUST PHONE to pre-arrange this with staff. A small fee may apply.
