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.

Prices are per person per night.

Located Near

We are located right in Glen Nevis approximately 3 miles from the main bus and train terminals in Fort William.

When you wake up here, you wake up looking at Britain's highest mountain disappearing up into the morning mist and the very best of the rest of Scotland starts right outside.

We are the best place to base yourself whilst exploring the local mountains, waterfalls and even film sets. We are also ideally located for three peaker and WHW Groups.
