About Achmelvich Beach Youth Hostel

The former school building and cottage have been tastefully transformed into a 35-bed hostel, with rooms of various sizes including one family room. The hostel offers breakfast but there is also a fully equiped self-catering kitchen. There is an abundance of wildlife to watch, unrivalled coastal walks and a pace of life that relaxes and unwinds. Unforgettable sunsets practically guaranteed.

Please note: The hostel is closed between 10:00am & 5pm
