Property Description

Aite Cruinnichidh is a warm, comfortable, friendly country hostel in converted barn, set in stunning mountainous surroundings 15 miles north east of Fort William and 2 miles from Roy Bridge. As we live on site, this is also a very safe hostel to stay at.
COVID 2021This has led to changes in how we are running the hostel. We are open with reduced numbers and a minimum two night stay. Walkers doing the EHW and touring cyclists please phone us .Initially we will have four rooms available to book, giving each room sole use of one WC/shower room. A maximum of 12 guests. Booking by room discriminates against the single traveller which we do not want to do. Please contact the hostel if you wish to book a single bed. From the 9th August restrictions are lifting in Scotland. As restrictions are lifted, the use of one WC/shower will not be restricted to one room and cleaning materials will be available in each WC/shower. We will request that guests book a time to cook if intending to cook whilst staying. The family room may be booked by four friends who are living in one household until 9th August. Every guest to have their own mask ,ready to be worn in communal areas. Once we receive a booking ,an email will be sent with more information about measures which have been put in place to minimise the risks from Covid. Full payment will be taken 7 days prior to arrival. We will not be offering a pick up or drop off service to Roy Bridge for those travelling by bus or train meantime.

It is an ideal location for walking, climbing, canoeing and mountain biking. There are 7 rivers for paddling within 20 miles of Aite Cruinnichidh. Extensive cycle routes are also nearby. We can advise you on walking and cycle routes with maps available.

    I stayed at the hostel three nights and was very happy with my stay. The hostel was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was big and well equipped. A lot of care had been taken with Covid measures to ensure that everyone was kept as safe as possible.

    A clean and comfortable place which was easy to find. A microwave would be good for non cooks. Dont be alarmed if you tip up and the place is in darkness and looks closed as happened to me because there were only two of us staying and the other guest had not returned from his day out. The door is open and the lights easy to find. That said I would rather this approach than lots of lights wasting electricity. Gavin appeared not long after I had arrived and was very pleasant and informative

    It was the perfect location to explore Fort William and Ben Nevis 😊 We did have a car hired but it was an easy and scenic drive. The accommodation was cosy, social and exactly what we needed as a simple and happy home base after our outdoor adventuring - would stay again 🙌

    Location is all Value is the rest Facilities were entirely as you’d expect in a hostel. Would definitely stay again. The entrance is a challenge from either direction, with very sudden appearance traveling NE and an impossible turn from NE; caution! Separate kitchen and lounge provide plenty of social space but the Covid meant almost no interaction with staff at all. No big deal. We had 2 bunks in a 6 bunk room with current max load of 4. Showers and toilets in a cluster downstairs.

    Very quaint hostel on a beautiful piece of land. If you're looking for a base to explore this area specifically, it's great. But if you're going for meeting people, using internet, going to a pub, or doing a lot of the most popular things in the area then it's a bit further than you want it to be.
