Welcome to our hostel

Let's Go Scotland: '..a restored mill workers' dwelling with river views and modern luxuries only dreamed of by earlier occupants'. Discover the impressive 225-year-old conservation village of New Lanark. Situated in a lovely tree-lined gorge, this World Heritage Site has been beautifully restored. Once the largest cotton spinning complex in Britain, but better known for the 19thC pioneering Utopian social experiments of Robert Owen. Visit the Falls of Clyde, the Scottish Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre and live the past with the Annie McLeod experience. Step over the threshold of the village shop and step back in time. Ideal for school parties. Further afield there's the town of Biggar, the David Livingstone Centre, Strathclyde Park and the Time Capsule. Private and family rooms available.

Great hostel within the most beautiful setting. Really friendly staff and good facilities. More facilities available at the nearby hotel. The hostel is right in the middle of the village which has heritage status and is really lovely. We would love to visit again if in the area again as we stayed only one night on the way from southampton to scotland. This is well worth a visit.

Room was basic but adequate. Very clean and bed was comfortable although a bit ‘squeaky’. We did have to ask for towels to be put in the room.

Don't stay if there is a wedding disco in the hotel. This kept us awake, followed by loud people outside
