With the spectacular Cuillin Mountains on its doorstep, Glenbrittle Youth Hostel is a great place to spend a few peaceful days.

The hostel has a modern self-catering kitchen as well as plenty of dining space. It is equipped with a drying room and a homely shared lounge area adorned with old photographs of the surrounding area. There are numerous books and games as well as a guitar for the evenings.

You can go walking and climbing, or just sit back and enjoy this wonderful rugged scenery - you don't need to climb a Munro to appreciate the amazing views. You can see waterfalls, lochs, beaches, fairy pools and the Islands of Rhum, Eigg, Muck, Soay, Canna and Uist, all without taking your hands out of your pockets! Also not too far away and worth visiting: Dunvegan Castle, Talisker Whisky distillery at Carbost, Glendale Toy Museum, Colbost Croft Museum.

You need to rent a car! No buses but it is worth it. Great location. Renovated hostel, relaxing atmosphere, great for outdoor activities.
