Welcome to the Great Glen Hostel!

The Great Glen Hostel is an independent hostel in South Laggan, a little hamlet at the heart of Scotland's Great Glen, 20 miles north of Fort William and 10 miles south of Loch Ness.

Previously known as Loch Lochy SYHA, the hostel is now owned and managed independently and has undergone extensive renovations.

Our facilities include:

  • Fully equipped self-catering kitchen
  • Free internet access and wifi
  • Laundry and drying room
  • Secure bike/canoe storage
  • Hot showers
  • Grocery store

Pedal, trek or paddle ...

If you are walking or cycling the Great Glen Way we are just minutes from the track, one mile north of Laggan Locks - either one or two days' walk from Fort William, depending on your pace.
If you want to escape into the hills we're surrounded by 'Munros' in Glen Garry, Glen Dessary, Glen Spean and the Great Glen.
Or if you prefer to paddle, the Garry, Spean, Roy and Moriston rivers are within easy reach - and the Caledonian Canal runs just behind the hostel.

Tour and explore ..

We're in an excellent location for exploring the Highlands and we can advise on day trips from here taking in sights such as Glenfinnan, the sands of Morar, Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye, and the castles of Urquhart and Eilean Donan.

Adventures in the Great Glen

Activity provider Great Glen Adventures are based here at the hostel and can offer guided walks, abseiling, climbing, rafting, kayaking, archery and more. For further information please have a look at their website.

Exclusive Hostel rental

The Great Glen Hostel is also available for exclusive rental throughout the year. If you are looking for a venue for your next school trip, club meet, or family get-together, we offer excellent facilities at a great price. For more information please click here.
