Rustic Youth Hostel Trio

Posted on 7th February, by SYHA Hostelling Scotland in Blog. No Comments

Many hostellers are familiar with SYHA Hostelling Scotlands rustic hostels at Loch Ossian & Glen Affric but the third hostel in the rustic set is a much better kept secret. A secret we want to share…

After a dark cold winter dreams of long days and magical sunsets can become reality this spring and summer. Set away from the hustle and bustle of life it’s a quarter of a mile walk from the car park to Achininver Youth Hostel.

Achininver Youth Hostel

Over the last two years the hostel has been redecorated and refreshed to provide modern facilities in this remote corner of Wester Ross. Home comforts are just as you would expect from a modern hostel – hot showers, comfortable beds, self catering facilities, and the option to upgrade to a private room or book breakfast. What you don’t get at home is the sun setting beyond the Summer Isles or a backdrop of the Coigach mountains. The only real dilemma is whether to visit Achnahaird beach and the iconic yet family friendly hill of Stac Pollaidh on the way to or from the hostel.

Achininver is available for sole use (RentAHostel) from 6th April to 2nd May for £295 per night. The hostel is then fully open until 31st August.

There are 20 beds at Achininver (1 quad room and 2x 8 bedded rooms).
