Property Description

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.

    Beautifully situated hostel, it almost feels like you're staying on the loch itself. The building takes full advantage of the views and the bedroom was completely soundproofed from the road. The kitchen was warm and inviting and well connected to the living area, andd lots of useful equipment and a really nice selection of herbs and spices to use. The living room was cosy and rustic and felt like being in someone's home. The bedroom was well decorated and the beds were comfortable.

    Great hostel - really friendly staff. Walkway along from Great Glen Way route (along main road) would be great to avoid being near traffic.

    Best place I’ve stayed in the last three months travelling. The view is amazing, plenty of hikes to go on, very warm and cosy inside. Big kitchen and lounge areas, plenty of power outlets everywhere including USB ones and ones for each bed in the bedrooms. Laundry service is cheap, showers are hot. Highly recommend, I’ll definitely be coming back
