About Great Glen Hostel

We provide comfortable dormitory-style accommodation and family rooms, fully equipped self-catering facilities, hot showers, internet access, drying room, secure bike/canoe storage and a grocery store.

The hostel has 54 beds in family and dormitory rooms. We have one twin room, two five-bed rooms with double beds, one six-bed room, three eight-bed dorms and one twelve-bed dorm. Toilet and shower facilities are shared. Our self-catering kitchen is well-equipped with fridge, freezer, microwave, oven, hobs, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. The dining room has seating for 32 and there's also a comfortable TV lounge to relax in. We now have free internet terminals throughout the hostel or if you're bringing your own laptop you can take advantage of free WI-FI.

We have a very efficient drying room and plenty of secure storage for bikes and canoes and ample car parking space. A washing machine and dryer are available for customer use. All bedding is provided - there's no need to bring your own - and towels can be hired at the hostel if required.

Our hostel store is well stocked with cereals, snacks, soups, pasta, chocolate, soft drinks, sundries and more. We offer a pickup service to walkers within the South Laggan area - just call us if you're tired at the end of a long day's trek.

Local services
There is a small Mace shop one and a half miles north of the Hostel at the Well of the Seven Heads, by Loch Oich, selling groceries, newspapers and souvenirs, open 8am - 5pm daily (longer hours in summer). Invergarry (four miles) has a post office, playground, hotel and petrol station. Two restaurants are within walking distance of the Hostel: the Loch Oich Bar and Restaurant at the Great Glen Water Park, and The Eagle Inn On The Water (moored at Laggan Locks). Other options include the Invergarry Hotel, Glengarry Castle Hotel, and Letterfinlay Hotel, all within five miles.

Cycle hire is available through Monster Activities at the Great Glen Water Park and there's also a small swimming pool available for public use.

The Great Glen Way - a long-distance route between Fort William and Inverness for walkers and cyclists - passes just behind the hostel. Hill walkers are spoilt for choice with an abundance of 'Munros' close by in Glen Garry, Glen Dessary, Glen Spean and the Great Glen. For paddlers the Garry, Spean, Roy and Moriston rivers are within easy reach.

We can organise tailor-made outdoor activity and team-building packages for groups with a local activities provider, and the whole hostel can be rented for exclusive use throughout the year. School and Youth groups, University clubs, hill walking groups and families looking for a venue to get together will all enjoy the hostel's picturesque location.

If you're touring the Highlands, the hostel is a great base for your holiday; you can take day trips by car from here to the Isle of Skye, Loch Ness and Inverness, the castles of Eilean Donan and Urquhart, the sands of Morar on the west coast, Fort William, and more.

The hostel is open all day and there's no curfew, so you are free to do as much or as little as you like.
