Glen Nevis Hostel

Hostel Glen Nevis

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

With Britain's highest mountain, a world class mountain biking course and some of Scotland's most dramatic landscapes on its doorstep it's no wonder Glen Nevis is one of the most popular destinations in our network for groups and individuals alike. For those groups looking for an adrenaline rush, other activities in the area include sea kayaking, white water rafting, winter sports and a high wire adventure course.
Also in the area, described as the greatest railway journey in the world and a must for Harry Potter fans, the Jacobite Steam Train made famous by the Harry Potter movies, takes you on an 84 mile round trip past a list of impressive extremes.
Sitting at the foot of Ben Nevis, this newly refurbished youth hostel provides a wide range of high quality shared accommodation and private en-suite rooms. New facilities include a comfortable, open plan, contemporary living space with a log burning stove and fantastic views of the surrounding area. There's also a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, drying room, laundry and secure bike storage. Full catering is available for groups and cooked or continental breakfasts for all guests who prefer to take the hassle out of preparing for a long day on the hills.
With limited onsite parking, and coach parking at the nearby Fort William Town Centre, 3 miles away, the hostel really does feel like an excluded break away from the hustle and bustle with excellent aspect views. So if you are thinking of bringing your group to Glen Nevis, one of the scenic parts of Scotland, then why not make an enquiry here today.
