Rowardennan Youth Hostel (SYHA)


Rowardennan, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, G63 0AR

    Idyllic location on the banks of Loch Lomond with unobstructed views and the West Highland Way passing by the gate.

    Set in the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park the youth hostel offers great facilities and an unrivalled location. Laze on the beach, fish, or walk up Scotland's most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond (974m, 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 which passes by the hostel. We are a welcome stop off point for those about to attempt the next 20 miles to our hostel in Crianlarich!
