Property Description

A lochside lodge, sitting on the northern shore of Loch Gairloch, with magnificent sea and mountain views and easy access to fantastic sandy beaches.

Gairloch Sands Youth Hostel is a great base for exploring the North West Highlands, offering guests a range of comfortable private and shared rooms. None of the rooms are en-suite but ample shower and washroom facilities are available.

Guests can opt for a ‘Wee Breakfast’ of cereal, Scottish yogurt, fresh fruit, tea and coffee, or take advantage of the recently refurbished and well-equipped self-catering kitchen and dining room. The hostel is licensed so you can enjoy local beers, malt whisky or a glass of wine while relaxing in the cosy lounge with panoramic views over Gairloch, the Torridon hills, the Isle of Skye and the Outer Hebrides (on a good day)!

WiFi is free for all guests and other facilities include lockers, a laundry and a small drying room. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception and the nearest shop is only a fifteen minute walk away. The hostel has onsite parking facilities for up to 13 cars.

Gairloch Sands is a dog-friendly hostel. If you would like to book a room with your dog into the hostel, please phone the hostel direct to check availability of a dog friendly room. There is an additional charge of £7.50 per night for your dog when staying in our hostels.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Gairloch Sands youth hostel. It was a beautiful area to explore. I had one day that I would have appreciated being allowed to access my room earlier than 5pm to shower and get ready for the evening. When I did enter at 5 pm after waiting outside for 30 minutes I found that several of the other guests were inside so I was slightly confused by that. Overall I had a lovely stay and am looking forward to future hostel experiences.
