Great Glen Hostel

The Great Glen Hostel is an independent hostel in South Laggan, a little hamlet at the heart of Scotland's Great Glen, 20 miles north of Fort William and 10 miles south of Loch Ness. Previously known as Loch Lochy SYHA, the hostel is now owned and managed independently and has undergone extensive renovations. We are on the Great Glen Way and a good choice if you are travelling on foot or by cycle and looking for budget accommodation in the Great Glen by Loch Lochy.

We've been hard at work improving the hostel this year converting dorms into more twin and family rooms - click here for more information and pictures! Our facilities include: Fully equipped self-catering kitchen Free internet access and wifi Laundry and drying room Secure bike/canoe storage Hot showers Grocery store Pedal, trek or paddle ... If you are walking or cycling the Great Glen Way we are just minutes from the track, one mile north of Laggan Locks - either one or two days' walk from Fort William, depending on your pace. If you want to escape into the hills we're surrounded by 'Munros' in Glen Garry, Glen Dessary, Glen Spean and the Great Glen. Or if you prefer to paddle, the Garry, Spean, Roy and Moriston rivers are within easy reach - and the Caledonian Canal runs just behind the hostel.
