Property Information:

Gairloch Sands Youth Hostelis a cosy former hunting lodge situated on the northern shore of Loch Gairloch with magnificent sea and mountain views.

Built in the 1880's this is one of the oldest Youth Hostels within the SYHA network. Gairloch Carn Dearg Youth Hostel is a popular choice with groups, families and individual travellers looking for budget accommodation and a popular stop-off point for many cyclists. We are an ideal place to explore the West Coast from or to rest on a journey to or from Skye.

The Youth Hostel offers a good range of facilities including an excellent dining room, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, laundry and both multi-share and private bedrooms. The most commented feature by our guests is the lounge which boasts stunning panoramic views of the Torridon hills and Loch Gairloch.

There are excellent sandy beaches on our door step and boat trips to watch whales and dolphins are available in the village. Gairloch is one of the top five Scottish Marine Life Watch destinations with dolphins, whales, otters and other wildlife spotted from the Youth Hostel. The village also boasts fine pubs, coffee shops, restaurants, fresh seafood, a weekly market, an award-winning heritage museum, visitors centre and leisure centre.

As well as being convenient for the famous Inverewe Garden there are also many fine mountains only a short drive away, including Beinn Eighe, Britains first National Nature Reserve, and the Torridon range. Other local activities include pony trekking, kayaking, fishing, golf and traditional distilling.

    A second shower would be nice, and it would be so great to be able to use the hostel during the day, too! I didn't know about that before and it's quite uncommon.
