With a great range of facilities including multi-share and private rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, a spacious dining area, a large drying room and ample parking for cars and buses, Aviemore Youth Hostel is the perfect base for outdoor enthusiasts.
Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel, in the Glenmore area is great for a variety of activities, but is also somewhere to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Scotland with many easy walking and cycling paths through the Caledonian Pine forest on our doorstep. The Loch Morlich Watersports Centre is based on the large beach near to the youth hostel and some of our activity holidays are based here.
Both youth hostels are close to the Cairngorm mountain funicular and snowsports area, making them an ideal base for year-round activities, including hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing watersports and fishing.
