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!]

    My travel companion and I picked up 3 girls hitch hiking who worked at this hostel. If we hadn't, we would of never know of this place. It was excellent! Right on the banks of Lock Ness with an incredible view. Very friendly staff. Would highly recommend and really wish we could of stayed more than one evening.

    Very Good

    A lovely setting with enough parking. The Loch beach needs some very basic TLC to make it delightful, as indeed do the gardens. The communal space had been segregated with No Entry signs in place, I thought this must be a Covid requirement, but was surprised to find a member of staff sleeping on a sofa in the corner of the room which I found extremely unusual, especially when I wanted to make an early morning cup of coffee. No check in before 5pm enforced. OK place, but could be so much better.
