Property Information:

Port Charlotte Youth Hostel is a converted whisky warehouse of the former Lochindaal Distillery, right at the shore of Loch Indaal on Islay. The youth hostel has all the amenities you would expect. For those looking for budget accommodation multi-share rooms are available, but the youth hostel is also family friendly and provides private rooms. Facilities include a spacious and well-equipped self-catering kitchen overlooking the bay and a common room for families and groups with a TV and comfy furniture.

Port Charlotte Youth Hostel is perfectly located right beside a safe sandy beach. This charming youth hostel is situated in the village of Port Charlotte with its whitewashed cottages, numerous restaurants, eateries and tea and coffee spots. The endless beaches on Islay are sandy and deserted, while the distilleries in the area are world renowned Single Malt producers are found in breath-taking locations.

The youth hostel has wonderful sea views and good facilities and is popular with families, cyclists, walkers and independent travellers.

Along with its outstanding natural beauty Islay is also famed for its diverse and plentiful wildlife, and is home to two RSPB nature reserves. With its excellent accommodation and facilities, the youth hostel (and the attached Wildlife Centre) is an ideal base from which to explore all that Islay has to offer - along with visits to neighbouring wild Jura.
