Torridon Hostel

Hostel Torridon

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Situated at the head of Upper Loch Torridon in the shadow of the mighty Liathach, and only a stone's throw from Upper Loch Torridon, Torridon Youth Hostel is a great option for walkers and climbers as well as those simply wishing to relax and enjoy the wildlife.

This hostel has a good range of multi-shared rooms and private/family rooms. It has its own store, self-catering facilities, two panoramic lounges and a drying room.

Towering immediately above the hostel, Liathach at 3456 feet is the highest peak in the area and with its spectacular pinnacles, it is one of the most challenging ridge walks in Scotland. Equally enjoyable expeditions may also be taken to Beinn Eighe, Beinn Alligin, Beinn Liath Mor, Sgorr Ruadh, Maol Chean Dearg, and Slioch. Other local activities include clay pigeon shooting, archery, kayaking and bike hire.

Eine schöne Jugendherberge in wundervoller Umgebung mit netten Menschen. Ein wenig einsam, aber vor Ort gibt es ein sehr nettes kleines Cafe mit leckeren Scones, Sandwiches und freundlicher Bedienung. Dort kann mal auch das Notwendigste einkaufen Es gibt viele schöne Wandermöglichkeiten und Ausflugsziele, wenn man bereit ist, ein wenig mit dem Auto zu fahren. Ein Beusch der Torridon Hall lohnt sich auch, dort sind schöne Dinge von Künstlern aus der Umgebung zu sehen und auch zu kaufen.

Awesome location. Could do with a little more signage leading the way especially at night.
