Property Information:

Durness Smoo Youth Hostel is surrounded by wild and spectacular landscape. There are mountains, sea cliffs, beaches and waterfalls. On a clear night the starry skies are incredible, made even better if you are fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights. Durness provides a refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and John Lennon himself holidayed here for many years.

Durness Smoo Youth Hostel is relaxed and friendly and provides a simple base in which to explore the area on a budget. There are both multi-shared and private rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, drying room and cosy lounge which is heated by a coal-burning stove.

Local attractions include the infamous Smoo Cave (which is situated next to the youth hostel) Cape Wrath, Handa Island and Balnakiel Craft Village (only a short distance away). Hill walkers will love Foinaven, Ben Hope, Ben Loyal and Cranstackie and for those wishing simply to relax Balnakiel Beach and Faraid Head are beautiful sandy beaches and large sand dunes to be explored.

Dogs are now welcome at Durness Smoo, for a small fee, when guests book a private room. Dogs must be booked in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is allocated.

    Lovely staff, Marie Anne kept the place very well. Number of cloakrooms adequate but hard to keep a only female room when large numbers of girls are staying. Bed very comfortable and linen very clean. Excellent communal kitchen.
