Ideally placed for exploring to the east or the west, Loch Ness Youth Hostel is situated halfway along the banks of the infamous Loch Ness. Only 40 minutes from the newly-created city of Inverness and about two hours from the Isle of Skye, there's plenty to do in the area.

Well-appointed and brilliantly equipped kitchen is ideal for culinary experimentation and little hostel shop has basic tinned foods, snacks and drinks for sale. Internet access is available and bed linen is included.

The Great Glen long distance path passes the door, and the end-to-end Great Glen cycling route is nearby. From the hostel there is easy access to the loch shore, and you will have plenty of opportunities for Nessie-watching from most of the bedrooms. Or you could have a walk up the hills close to the hostel with a great view around Loch Ness to spot its famous resident.

very old and not clean. spider webs, spiders and flies everywhere. we didn´t get the room we booked because just gave it to someome else before us (they didnt book a private room with 3 beds but still got one) so we got only a room with 2 beds. maybe this is why they are closing.... view on the lake is great though

The Youth Hostel is situated very beautifully, direct view at Loch Ness. The stuff was very friendly. The house is old, shower didn't work in one building, restauration is necessary.
