Property Description

Please click the 'Read More' button for more info.

This year we have added two funky Finnish cabins which offer the most amazing 'glamping' experience in the Highlands!


We're situated on the stunning Minginish peninsula giving easy access to the Cuillin mountain range. It's location on the west coast makes for spectacular sunsets and gives you an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Isle of Skye.

The rural location (if you do not have a car please read the public transport section of the directions) means you are surrounded by unspoiled natural beauty. There is a great beach within walking distance with regular sightings of whales, dolphins and basking sharks as well as Skye's famous eagles!

The hostel is only a five-minute walk from the local hotel which serves meals and has a cosy bar, very popular both with locals and visitors. The nearest shop is in Carbost and it closes at 17:45.

The world famous Talisker distillery is less than 3 miles from the hostel and well worth a visit. Portree, the capital of the Island is only 25 minutes away by car or local bus.

The Hostel has a well equipped self catering kitchen and a large garden area for recreation and barbecues. There is also a cool 'chill out' glass dome for guests to relax in.

Skyewalker Hostel hosts regular Scottish folk music sessions and has instruments available for guests to use.

It is also possible to book the whole place for special occasions such as birthdays, Munro completion parties, family get-togethers etc.

Due to the communal nature of hostelling, we are unable to accept reservations from families or groups with children under the age of 12.

Skyewalker Hostel...Scotland's best!

Latest Review

" Stayed in one of the Jedi pods at the back of this interesting hostel. The owners are friendly and organized and full of helpful advice. The hostel is beautifully situated in Portnalong, close to the Talisker distillery and surrounded by lovely countryside. The Cuillin hills are close by and the Fairy Pools are a short drive away. There is a walk known as 'The Loop' that you can do that goes down to the beach in a circular route and there is a hill behind the hostel to see the sunset. "
