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.

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.

A great hostel with a range of accommodation options. Lovely views over Loch Erisort and friendly staff. They also have a cafe although it was closed while we were there as it was the Sabbath. Definitely worth a visit.

Super Lage, sehr gemütliches Hostel, man hat sich gleich wohl gefügt. Es wäre schön, wenn man die Zimmer absperren kann.

Fantastic stay at Ravenspoint! Very clean, great location and excellent facilities at a very reasonable price. Only negative is that the walls are quite thin and the doors are very loud when they close - this meant that we were woken up late at night by people coming in.
