Property Information:

You can now enjoy a FREE breakfast as well as a friendly atmosphere at Chase The Wild Goose Hostel in Fort William. The hostel is located at Banavie, close to the Caledonian Canal. The Lochy Bar and Moorings Hotel are just a stones throw away for meals and refreshments after a long day on the hill or touring the Scottish Highlands.

THE HOSTEL has 42 beds in a mix of double, twin, family and dormitory accommodation, providing for the needs of individuals, families, backpackers and small groups. Theres a small self-catering kitchen should you want to cook your own meals, but you can also enjoy our Free 'Breakfast-Lite' Continental Breakfast. You can eat it any time, even before you go to bed. Being a little out of town we hope to offer a better nights sleep before your energetic day on the hills than perhaps you might receive in a town centre establishment.

OUR GUESTS - The hostel is also a popular stop-over for enthusiasts on the 3-peaks challenge, walkers of the Great Glen Way and West Highland Way and caters for visitors to the Mountain Bike challenges nearby, water sports enthusiasts and can even organise a mountain guide to take you up Ben Nevis. Backpackers from around the globe have enjoyed their stay.

BEN NEVIS - To top all this, the area is renowned for having the best views of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.

'HOGWARTS EXPRESS' - If you are less energetic, visit Neptunes Staircase or ride the famous Jacobite Steam Train featured in the Harry Potter films, as the 'Hogwarts Express'.

    The hostel is run down, not very clean and damp, especially the bathrooms which I had to queue each time I needed the toilet or shower. Some showers were poor and broken. Breakfast was poor as most things had run out. I was offered a ride by staff to the base of Ben Nevis by a volunteer who worked out of the hostel. I was charged us £15 to go a couple of miles!!! This was concerning and far more than a local taxi. I will not be recommending this hostel or using it again!
