Property Description

Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel is a former shooting lodge in the heart of Cairngorms National Park, seven miles from Aviemore with stunning views towards the Northern Corries.

The hostel offers a range of comfortable private rooms and spacious shared accommodation with separate washrooms. Guests can opt for a continental breakfast, lunch or evening meal served in the dining room or take advantage of the large, well-equipped self-catering kitchen.

The hostel is licensed so why not relax and enjoy a locally brewed beer or a glass of wine in the cosy lounge, while taking in the view across the Cairngorms. Other facilities include a pool table, laundry, drying room and secure bike store. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception.

Due to the hostel’s remote location, WiFi is free but access is limited.

Local activities include hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, pony trekking, watersports and fishing. Most activities take place on the Rothiemurchus Estate, a fabulous area with many easy paths through the Caledonian Pine Forest. The Scottish Whisky Trail is also nearby and, for something different, visit the Reindeer Centre, where you can feed and learn about these friendly free-roaming animals.

The hostel sits across the road from the banks of Loch Morlich, which boasts the highest sandy beach in the UK.

Dogs are welcome at Cairngorm Lodge, for a small fee, when booking a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is available.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental. View House Rules

    Nicest hostel Ive ever stayed in. Really friendly staff, super clean and organized place, and lots of indoor activities and reading materials for night/bad weather. Great location for walking and other outdoor activities—Loch Morlich is particularly nice. Heads up that theres no electrical sockets in the rooms, but they have lots in the lobby and I never felt worried leaving my phone there. Showers get blessedly hot. Pine Marten bar just across the street is lovely.

    Great hostel, right in a perfect location (although bus routes are not frequent enough, do not run evenings). Easy hiking right from the hostel, really nice staff and place. Breakfast was delicious maybe a little pricey. Place was comfortable and other guests were nice as well. The kitchen was super clean which was really nice. Honestly I think this is my favourite hostel I have ever stayed at.

    Such an incredible setting nestled up in the Cairngorms National Park. This is a friendly hostel, with well facilitated group kitchen, shared lounge and large dining area, where you can order in house food. Situated minutes walk from the lake, and a fabulous wooden lodge bar, this hostel is perfectly located to explore the Cairngorms. It is quiet and surrounded by woodland. The staff were friendly, and very knowledgeable and also ask you to let them know where you are hiking that day.
