Broadford Youth Hostel
Set in a romantic bay with beautiful coastal and mountain views, Broadford Youth Hostel makes a fine base for exploring the Isle of Skye.
The famous Cuillin mountain range, just 15 miles away, is Scotland's ultimate challenge for serious walkers and climbers. Low-level walkers can enjoy several coastal trails and, within easy driving distance, there are boat trips on Loch Coruisk. The International Otter Survival Fund is also based in Broadford.
The youth hostel is close to the main road on Skye, in a central location and well-served by public transport in all directions. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance.
Good value accommodation for individuals and groups is on offer, and you’ll find a laundry, drying room, small shop and bike shed on-site. WiFi access is free. The self-catering kitchen and communal areas have beautiful views over Broadford Bay, extending to the mountains of the Applecross peninsula on the mainland.
