Property Description

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 hostel is a short, approximately 20 minute walk from the station along a well-made track.

Sitting on the southern shore of Loch Ossian, this traditional but homely eco-hostel makes a perfect base for hillwalkers looking to explore the remote wilderness of Rannoch Moor.

Accommodation at the hostel is in male and female specific dorms, but groups and families have the option of booking a dorm for exclusive use. The hostel has a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, with fridge, and a small shop selling ready meals, a range of snacks, postcards and sundries. Drying is available on two overhead racks and boot stands by the fire - the perfect place to relax after a day on the hills.

Guests can now enjoy a welcome hot shower, thanks to the development of locally sourced hydro power complimenting the micro generated solar power supply. 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 the perfect place to stay if you're looking to get away from it all. It has plenty of low and high level walks 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 group getaway, or a peaceful break.

Loved staying here! so peaceful and nice to get away into nature!! Hostel had everything you could ask for - a warm fireplace, tea and coffee, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Hostel owner was absolutely lovely and very accommodating and helpful! Gorgeous location, an absolutely serene stay. Just a wee warning - no wifi or data once you get off the train, make sure you're in first two carriage of the train to stop off at carrour, and bring all your own food!
