About Glencoe Youth Hostel

Set in one of Scotland’s most spectacular and historic glens, not far from Glencoe village, this alpine-style youth hostel provides an excellent base for walkers and climbers of all abilities - not just in summer but all year round.

Glencoe Youth Hostel is perfect if you're attempting an historic walk up the Lost Valley or tackling Britain's finest ridge walk, the Aonach Eagach (which ends at the hostel). Visit the Glencoe mountain resort for skiing and mountain biking or cycle the Sustrans path to Oban. Alternatively, relax and be inspired by the dramatic scenery and history of this famous glen.

Popular with walkers, climbers and families, the hostel offers private en-suite family rooms as well as budget multi-share accommodation. There's a large open plan kitchen/dining room with ample cooking facilities and dining tables and, we’ve been told, one of the best drying rooms in the Scottish highlands!

Dogs are now welcome at Glencoe, 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

There are abundant walking and climbing opportunities in some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery.

Fort William is only half an hour away by car. Well-known movie locations are also nearby (eg Skyfall, Harry Potter, Highlander). Lots more information on local activities can be found at Ballachulish Tourist Information Centre.

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.
