Property Description
Perched on the banks of legendary Loch Ness, The Lochside Hostel offers totally unrivalled views of Scotland’s most famous Loch, and direct access to the water's edge! Perfect for walks, monster spotting and even a dip into the mysterious waters!

As well as our unique location, and lovely facilities we are so easy to get to! All busses from Inverness, Skye and Fort William stop at our door. If you travel by car we make a great base to explore most of the Highlands - from Skye to Ullapool to Ben Nevis to Inverness to Aviemore and the rest - with a great lounge and extensive kitchen to return to in the evenings. We also have an alcohol license and food-to-cook for sale.

Great for hikers and Cyclists – we are on the Great Glen Way !
Canoeists – a jaw-dropping expanse of water at your doorstep !

We are also ideal for anyone who wants a Tech-Detox! ... you see… our internet connection is pretty bad , emails only just about ! [but we make up for it in so many other ways J !!! – and it gives us a nicer, old-style hostel vibe!]

However you travel, you are assured of a great welcome at our delightful hostel.

    We had a great time! Location is beautiful and cheap as chips for Lochness! It’s not posh but is clean and tidy and the staff are so accommodating and welcoming. We spent the evening with the staff and owner on the loch talking and watching the sun go down. It was beautiful and we met a lovely group of people. Thank you for a great stay.... I will defo be going back!

    One of few hostels I have ever rated full markings to - no faults at all. The building itself is really nice, has a cosy lounge area with a fireplace and free pool, not to mention the huge kitchen was good too. As far as I'm aware all if not most of the rooms overlook the Loch which makes for some stunning views - hard to believe it was only £20/night. Also big thanks to the staff who gave me my own dorm too!
