A newly refurbished hostel in the heart of South Lochs, nestled between the crystal clear waters of Loch Erisort to the North, and the Harris hills to the South. A great base for cycling, walking, wildlife and traditional Gaelic culture.

In this unspoilt area of the Highland wilderness, visitors can enjoy comfortable facilities and the opportunity to discover an area of outstanding natural beauty with many Gaelic-speaking communities.

The hostel is located in a renovated schoolhouse, which adjoins the shop and tea-room, and is tucked away in a quiet village far from the pressures of everyday life.

If you are searching for a peaceful retreat with beautiful views in an area where you can see Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles and many other birds and wildlife, and with opportunities for walking, cycling and other outdoor activities this is the place for you.

Great facilities at this hostel for a small number of couples, family or individual travellers. The location is stunning, and if the weather isn't too great there's a lovely sitting room with views over the sea loch.

The warden was so helpful - we really appreciate her help in making us comfortable and helping us with shopping for vegan food. My only comment about the green rating is whether it would be possible to have a recycling/composting system for organic matter (veg peelings etc). Thank you - we had a fabulous time cycling in the Outer Hebrides - it wouldn't have been possible without hostels like this and we can't thank the warden enough for going the extra mile to accommodate our needs.

A great room that would shame many a hotel. Rest of facilities were excellent. Arrived late after a trip to St Kilda and had to leave early for Ullapool boat but will return and already reccommended to friends and family.
