A finalist in TGO Magazine’s Hostel or Bunkhouse of the Year 2018, Glen Affric Youth Hostel is unique and remote.
A former stalking bothy on the Affric Estate, this friendly eco-hostel offers a warm welcome and an unforgettable experience in one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland. A wind turbine and solar panels provide warm water and electricity, while the comfortable common room and kitchen are heated by wood and coal fires.
The hostel has two private rooms as well as comfortable shared accommodation. Because of its remote location, provisions are limited and we ask guests to bring their own sleeping bags, food, drink and appropriate clothing for the duration of their stay. There’s no WiFi at the hostel and mobile phone reception is extremely limited.
The hostel is only accessible on foot or by mountain bike, so please allow at least 3-4 hours to walk there. Its unique location is the closest you’ll get to an alpine hut in Scotland and a great experience waits for anyone prepared to make the effort to visit.
- There are no signs to the hostel so a good map, compass, torch and appropriate clothing are essential.
- There is no refuse collection, so anything you bring with you will need to leave with you.
The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.
