Welcome to our hostel

Known as the Gateway to the Highlands, our hostel in Inverness is a great destination for groups looking to discover what this stunning part of Scotland has to offer.

Groups looking to explore on foot can enjoy the fine circular walk from Inverness Castle, currently used as a courthouse, along the river past St Andrew’s Cathedral, which dominates the River Ness, and through the Ness Islands where you will find anglers casting long lines to leaping Atlantic salmon.

Craig Phadrig lies just above the city. Once the stronghold of Pictish kings, it offers interesting forest walks and magnificent views of the Moray Firth, which is home to a diverse range of wildlife.

Inverness also offers a fantastic choice of events and festivals from traditional to modern including music festivals, golf championships and iconic Highland games on top of art, history and heritage events.

There is also many attractions around the city - re-live one of Scotland’s most famous battles at Culloden Battlefield, see a school of dolphins in the nearby Moray Firth or cruise down the Caledonian Canal to the world-famous Loch Ness.

The hostel is just a six minute walk from the city centre and the friendly staff here have also managed to partner with a number of tours in the city to give our groups some great discounts – just ask at reception.

Inverness Hostel is waiting to welcome you. Make an enquiry now!
