Welcome to our hostel

Morag's Lodge is set in wooded grounds, just minutes’ walk from the bustling village of Fort Augustus by Loch Ness.

The hostel offers en-suite rooms, modern facilities and a relaxed atmosphere as well as free Wi-Fi and free parking on site. There is also a licensed bar, where you can enjoy a range of drinks and relax beside an open fire, which hosts regular live music.

While you are there, relax by the Loch and try some Nessie spotting, take a walk or cycle through the network of paths around the village, enjoy a Loch Ness cruise or visit the Clansman Centre to find about Highland life in the 17th century. Explore the Great Glen Way and the famous Corrieyairack Pass. This place is great for hillwalking, mountain biking, cycling and water sports. In winter a range of snow sports are available at Nevis Range which is 45 minutes’ drive.

Host was distracted with intro to facilities...I think she poss had too many responsibilities. Bar was great but again was very loud with many locals drinking til late. Still overall I might stay again if no other hostels close by.

It is disappointing for our hard-working and friendly team to receive such a poor rating. You stayed with us on a night we were fully booked so we would expect our bar to be lively. Our bar is for residents only, not locals as your comment states. We have double checked what room you stayed in and you were in one of our second floor rooms in a seperate building to our bar - one of the quietest rooms we have! We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip.

Cleanliness of kitchen could be improved. Bathroom door in our room made loads of noise. As well as flushing toilet would wake up half of the hostel due to noise it was making. Otherwise the hostel is nice, well situated, comfortable with friendly and helpful staff.

Thank-you for your feedback. We will investigate your comments regarding the bathroom door and loo and rectifiy asap. We deep clean the self-catering kitchen every day and try to keep an eye on how tidy it is being kept by the guests using it thoughout the day- we have found that some of our guests are tidier than others! We are happy to hear that you had a pleasant and comfortable stay :0)
