Property Description

Set in rugged scenery at the foot of the Cuillin Ridge, Glenbrittle Youth Hostel is just over a mile from the beach and close to the magical fairy pools. It’s a great place to spend a few days relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.

Glenbrittle has a long tradition as a base for walkers and climbers tackling the famous Cuillin and the Skye Munros. For a less strenuous pace there are coastal and low-level walks for all abilities and weather conditions, wildlife to watch, archaeology and geology to explore. The Talisker Distillery is seven miles away at Carbost. A short drive will take you to Dunvegan Castle, Glendale Toy Museum and Colbost Croft Museum.

The youth hostel has a modern self-catering kitchen with plenty of dining space. A homely lounge area features old photographs of the area and there are books and games available for the evenings. A small shop on-site sells local beers, cider and wines as well as basic food items and other essentials, including ice-cream!

Please note that due to demand at this location shared accommodation can be unisex therefore children under the age of 16 can only be accommodated in a private room accompanied by an adult.

    Quite a nice hostel if you are looking for an out of the way experience on Skye. You really need a car to get here but it puts you in a perfect spot for lots of great hikes.

    Very clean hostel with a homely feel. Male and female bathrooms. Large lockers within room. Very big rooms so you don’t feel like you’re imposing on people’s space. There’s a laundry facility and drying room for if your clothes get wet during your hikes. Located close to a lot of fab hiking areas but far from town. Not really anywhere to eat close by but I had a car so wasn’t an issue for me. Might be difficult if you’re travelling by foot or relying own public transport

    It was super nice to be disconnected and the hostel is clean with most things you need! The staff wasn’t super helpful on recommending what to do in the area but otherwise were fine. A little hard to find in the dark but a lovely remote place to stay! But you definitely to bring food and have a car
