About Rowardennan Lodge Youth Hostel

Rowardennan Youth Hostel sits in an idyllic location on the banks of Loch Lomond, in the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, with unobstructed views and the West Highland Way passing by the gate.

You can choose to laze on the beach, fish, or climb Scotland's most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond (974m and right behind the hostel). A boat cruise up the loch is the most relaxing way to explore this area, although many choose to walk the West Highland Way. Rowardennan is a welcome stop off point for those about to attempt the next 20 miles to our youth hostel in Crianlarich!

Right beside Loch Lomond, with its own jetty, Rowardennan Lodge provides quality budget accommodation in both multi-share and private rooms. Facilities include a large panoramic lounge with spectacular views across Loch Lomond, a laundry, drying room and shop. Full catering is on offer throughout the day, but there’s also a large self-catering kitchen and dining room.
