Glen Nevis Youth Hostel
Welcome To Glen Nevis Youth Hostel! We are the largest and longest established hostel in the Glen Nevis/Fort William area.
We have been hosting hill walkers, climbers and backpackers right here at the foot of Britains Highest Mountain since 1933 and have a proven track record of providing quality accommodation for individuals, families and groups wishing to visit the Lochaber area and perhaps pit their wits against Beinn Nibheis. (Ben Nevis Gaelic translation).
Set in one of Scotlands most beautiful glens the scenery really does start right on our doorstep. Better still we are just a short walk from the best places to eat and drink in the area.
