On average, adults in the UK now spend over eight hours each day on media devices and over 80 per cent plan to stay connected on holiday.

If you’re looking to swap emails and emoji’s for breath taking views and wildlife spotting then hostelling is a great way to 'get away from IT all'. Use the promotion code SYHATD9 to enjoy 10% off accommodation at selected youth hostels for a Tech Detox Weekend when you book up to 31 July and stay 3-6 September 2015.

On arrival, check in and secure your gadgets in our “detox bag”. Once free of the chains of technology you’ll get the chance to experience life away from a LCD screen – bag a Munro, explore the stunning beaches of the North West Highlands or go on an island SYHAdventure!

“I’m just thinking that I’d like to send and receive a few texts when I spot a majestic stag grazing on the youth hostel lawn outside. Going out, I meet fellow tech addict Danny Huff, a sales manager who, like me, is awestruck to be just metres from a deer.” – Julia Horton, Daily Record Journalist who took part in our Tech Detox Weekend in 2014
