Welcome to our hostel

Crianlarich Youth Hostel is a modern bungalow style building nestled below a forest in the Strathfillan Glen. This friendly youth hostel is located just over an hour's drive from Stirling and provides a great base for families, groups and outdoor enthusiasts looking to explore the northern area of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

Facilities include a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, multi-share and private bedrooms, a cosy lounge, large dining area and a drying room. There is also ramped access for wheelchair users, ample parking and a children's playground nearby.

The village of Crianlarich is the halfway point on the West Highland Way and provides a welcome rest for tired feet. Twenty Munros dominate the landscape with particular favourites being Ben More (1174m) and Ben Lui (1130m). There are many other walks in the local community woodland and nearby forest and trout fishing permits can be bought locally.

Very nice showers and comfortable lounge area. It was nice to have the table and chairs in the dorm. The drying room didn't seem as hot as it should have been.

Une grande auberge dans un endroit aussi reculé avec tout le confort nécessaire. Idéalement située à côté de la gare et près des arrêts de bus. Très calme et protégée des midges, en tout cas à l'intérieur. En revanche, prendre un verre en terrasse le soir relève du défi pour qui craint les moustiques et moucherons. Le parcours de promenade à proximité est très sympathique et le paysage somptueux.

Nous étions de passage pour une nuit. Accueil parfait. Petit restau à proximté plein de recettes typiques écossaise alors qu'on s'attendait à des pizzas. Bref, escale fabuleuse !
