Property Description

A warm welcome awaits you at our award winning, family run Highland Hostel! We have a choice of rooms from twin private bunks to the more sociable 10 bed dorm! We also have twin en suite rooms and the Skyewalker Jedi Huts.

Please click the 'Show More' button for more info.

We're situated on the stunning Minginish peninsula giving easy access to the Cuillin mountain range. It's location on the west coast makes for spectacular sunsets and gives you an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Isle of Skye.

The rural location (if you do not have a car please read the public transport section of the directions) means you are surrounded by unspoiled natural beauty. There is a great beach within walking distance with regular sightings of whales, dolphins and basking sharks as well as Skye's famous eagles!

The hostel is only a five-minute walk from the local hotel which serves meals and has a cosy bar, very popular both with locals and visitors. The nearest shop is in Carbost and it closes at 17:45.

The world famous Talisker distillery is less than 3 miles from the hostel and well worth a visit. Portree, the capital of the Island is only 25 minutes away by car or local bus.

The Hostel has a well equipped self catering kitchen and a large garden area for recreation and barbecues. There is also a cool 'chill out' glass dome for guests to relax in.

Skyewalker Hostel hosts regular Scottish folk music sessions and has instruments available for guests to use.

It is also possible to book the whole place for special occasions such as birthdays, Munro completion parties, family get-togethers etc.

Skyewalker Hostel...Scotland's best!

    Had a great stay at Skyewalker. Warm and homely, while still being eclictic and cool. We only met Georgia and Tim who were fantastic hosts with a wealth of local knowledge. Excellent facilities and great location. I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone coming to Isle of Skye.

    Absolutely Amazing stay. This was our last stop on a road trip through Scotland and staying here was such fun meeting new kind people. The owner, staff and even the guests were so welcoming. We had some fun in the sun dome on the sunny days which was an absolute treat. The owner himself was so kind and helpful giving us some handy local tips on where to visit etc. The venue is absolutely amazing with the best toilet/bathroom/kitchen cleaniness I will probably see for a 'hostel'....

    I really enjoyed this hostel. Great set up, there were places to veg out inside and outside and a massive clear dome room to star gaze and lounge in outside which was pretty cool. Bathroom and showers were clean and pleasant to use. Lots of fun pictures and Star Wars deco around the place.... Staff and owners were very friendly and helpful.... even the other guests who stayed here were great! Would stay here again.

The hostel is closed to all guests between 11:00 and 15:00 for cleaning.
