Property Description

Surrounded by stunning scenery, Loch Ossian Youth Hostel is the perfect place to stay if you’re looking to get away from it all.

Loch Ossian Youth Hostel sits on the southern shore of Loch Ossian in the remote wilderness of Rannoch Moor. With no road access, this traditional but homely eco-hostel makes a perfect base for hillwalkers looking to explore the area. It has plenty of low and high level walking to choose from, including a variety of Munros and Corbetts. Popular with cyclists, star gazers, wildlife watchers, groups and families, it’s a great venue for a celebration or a peaceful break.

All accommodation is multi-share, but groups and families can book a dorm room for exclusive use. Loch Ossian has a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, with fridge, and a small shop with ‘Beyond the Beaten Track’ ready meals, a range of snacking essentials, postcards and sundries. Drying is available on two overhead racks and boot stands by the fire – perfect after a day on the hills. In extreme weather the hostel normally remains open during the day.

Thanks to the development of locally sourced hydro power to complement the existing micro generated solar power supply, Loch Ossian Youth Hostel now has hot showers. There’s also electric panel heating throughout and all bed linen is provided, so no need for sleep sheets or sleeping bags. Other green initiatives include composting toilets, a reed bed grey water drainage system and even bat-friendly paint!

Loch Ossian Youth Hostel is only accessible by rail, bike or foot. Corrour railway station (Glasgow to Fort William line) is the highest mainline railway station in the UK and the youth hostel is a short, approximately 20 minute walk from the station along a well-made track.

    Ounce in a lifetime. Except I will be back. Remote, beautiful, wild. Small common area encourages conversations with new friends. Kitchen well supplied. Beds firm and comfortable.

    A fairytale. Beautiful location. Cosy atmosphere. The warden is super welcoming and accommodating. The beds are a bit on the short side at least in the women's dorm so my slipped out on occasion but still had a wonderful night sleep because of the quiet. There is a small fridge to store food. Enough outlets to charge your phone but not beside your bed. There aren't any storage lockers but it's such a small place I didn't feel like I needed it. The kitchen was clean and fully equipped.

    The woman who runs the hostel, Jan, is absolutely amazing! The rooms were always clean and comfortable, and I throughly enjoyed my time there. The hostel is right in the middle of the highlands, and there are many hikes and trails that start as soon as you walk out the door!
