Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel (SYHA)


Glenmore, Aviemore, Inverness-shire, PH22 1QY

    An atmospheric old shooting lodge in the Cairngorm National Park. An ideal base for hiking, biking, climbing and winter sports.

    Situated in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, seven miles from Aviemore and just two miles from the Cairngorm mountain funicular and snowsports area, Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel provides an ideal base for year-round activities, including hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, pony trekking, watersports and fishing.

    This 72-bed youth hostel provides great facilities including a good range of multi-share and private rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, cycle store, drying room, internet and Wi-Fi access. Cooked breakfasts, packed lunches and full evening meals are also available. Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel is popular with outdoor enthusiasts, families and groups looking for budget accommodation.

    Most activities take place on the Rothiemurchus Estate, a fabulous area with many easy paths through the Caledonian Pine forest. The Loch Morlich Watersports Centre and a large beach are opposite the youth hostel and many of our activity holidays are based here. For something different visit the Reindeer Centre, where you can learn and feed these friendly free roaming animals.
