About Ratagan Youth Hostel

There are otters, badgers and pine martins in the area. Red deer are numerous, and on the mountains ravens, ptarmigan, sea and golden eagles and mountain hares can be found. The hostel is only 8 miles from the world famous Eilean Donan Castle, which you can already see from the front of the building.

We offer wee breakfasts for £3.75 and you can now purchase beer, wine and cider on the premises. We also have some self-catering style meals in our hostel shop where guests can also purchase some necessities.

"Much loved Highland Hostel... well situated for walking and exploring some of Scotland's most celebrated scenery" - Scotland the Best!
