Property Description

Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel is a former shooting lodge in the heart of Cairngorms National Park, seven miles from Aviemore with stunning views towards the Northern Corries.

The hostel offers a range of comfortable private rooms and spacious shared accommodation with separate washrooms. Guests can opt for a Wee Breakfast, lunch or evening meal served in the dining room or take advantage of the large, well-equipped self-catering kitchen.

The hostel is licensed so you can relax and enjoy a locally brewed beer or a glass of wine in the cosy lounge, while taking in the view across the Cairngorms. Other facilities include a pool table, laundry, drying room and secure bike store. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception. Due to the hostel’s remote location, WiFi is free but access is limited.

Local activities include hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, pony trekking, watersports and fishing. Most activities take place on the Rothiemurchus Estate, a fabulous area with many easy paths through the Caledonian Pine Forest. The Scottish Whisky Trail is also nearby and, for something different, visit the Reindeer Centre, where you can feed and learn about these friendly free-roaming animals.

The hostel sits across the road from the banks of Loch Morlich, which boasts the highest sandy beach in the UK.

Cairngorm Lodge is a dog-friendly hostel. If you would like to book yourself and your dog into the hostel, please phone the hostel direct to check availability. There is a small charge of £7.50 per night for your dog when staying in our hostels.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

One of the top 3 Hostels I have stayed at. The beds are very comfortable, the facilities are clean with ample space, and friendly staff. Easy check in and out. Conveniently located in the National Park. Highly recommend.
