Torridon Youth Hostel (SYHA)

Hostel

Torridon, Ross-shire, IV22 2EZ

    A fantastic base from which to explore the North Western Highlands, offering some of the finest mountain scenery in Europe.

    Situated at the head of Upper Loch Torridon in the shadow of the mighty Liathach, and only a stone's throw from Upper Loch Torridon, Torridon Youth Hostel is a great option for walkers and climbers as well as those simply wishing to relax and enjoy the wildlife.

    This hostel has a good range of multi-shared rooms and private/family rooms. It has its own store, self-catering facilities, two panoramic lounges and a drying room.

    Towering immediately above the hostel, Liathach at 3456 feet is the highest peak in the area and with its spectacular pinnacles, it is one of the most challenging ridge walks in Scotland. Equally enjoyable expeditions may also be taken to Beinn Eighe, Beinn Alligin, Beinn Liath Mor, Sgorr Ruadh, Maol Chean Dearg, and Slioch. Other local activities include clay pigeon shooting, archery, kayaking and bike hire.
