Property Information:

Our small, remote, rustic youth hostel is in wonderful surroundings, just a short walk to a legendary white sandy beach (listed in the Good Beach Guide).

This former school building and cottage has been tastefully transformed into a 22-bed youth hostel. Rooms vary in size and include group accommodation, private rooms and one family room. There is also a small self-catering kitchen and spacious dining area for guests to use.

There's no internet and limited mobile phone coverage, so you can really get away from it all! If you need it, there's a public telephone just two minutes away.

In the summertime there is a beach chip shop open, while fresh local produce is available nearby all year. The closest shop and pub is four miles away, in Lochinver.

Achmelvich Beach Youth Hostel is the ideal starting point for several beautiful coastal and hill walks such as Quinag, Suilven, Stac Pollaidh and Canisp. Some interesting walks are also organised in summer from the Achmelvich Beach car park by the local rangers. Water sports such as canoeing, kayaking and windsurfing are easily practised in the crystal waters. There’s an abundance of wildlife to watch, unrivalled coastal walks and a pace of life that relaxes and unwinds. Unforgettable sunsets are practically guaranteed.

    Perfect location. Loved the curtains between bunks, a lot more privacy than in any other hostel Ive stayed in. Fantastic people. Spectacular.
