Drive through the Glencoe Pass, one of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes and we’re sure your heart will be racing at the prospect of exploring this amazing natural playground.

Whatever outdoor activity you’re into, Glencoe couldn’t be better placed to fuel your sense of adventure. Whether you’re a hiker, white water rafter, mountain biker or simply there to capture the changing light as the clouds slip across the mountain tops there’s something here for everyone.

Glencoe Youth Hostel offers a range of shared accommodation and private family friendly rooms. The hostel has a large open plan kitchen/ dining room with ample cooking facilities and dining tables. According to one of our guests, the youth hostel has one of the best drying rooms in the Scottish Highlands!

The hostel has everything you can wish for: great showers, comfy beds, a stunning location and most important of all dedicated staff, for whom guests come as strangers but leave as friends.

Discover the Lost Valley or tackle Britain’s finest ridge walk, the Aonach Eagach, before relaxing and planning your next adventure at the Clachaig Inn, a 10 minute walk from the hostel.

With dog friendly accommodation available at Glencoe Youth Hostel, your four-legged friend will be able to join in on all the fun! A small fee of five pounds per dog per night will be charged and must be booked in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is allocated. For further information please refer to our Dog Guidelines
