Torridon Youth Hostel was purpose built by SYHA in 1975 and on 6th September 2015 will turn the big 4-0!

To celebrate we are offering 40 free overnight stays (20 pairs) during the month of October. Autumn is a great time to visit the North West Highlands. Relax after a day’s adventure, perhaps listening to the sound of stags rutting in the hills behind the youth hostel. It's a magical experience not to be forgotten.
