About Durness Smoo Youth Hostel

Durness Smoo is a refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The youth hostel, a simple little wooden building, overlooks the famous Smoo Cave. There is a well-equipped kitchen and a very efficient drying room. The lounge, heated by a coal-burning stove, is cosy and peaceful.

Please note: Reception closed between 10:00am & 5:00pm
