Situated in the spectacular surrounds of the southern Cullin ridge, Glenbrittle Hostel provides the perfect base for adventure and the best place to unwind afterwards. Built in the 1930's our Norwegian Mountain Hut styled hostel has been the home away from home for generations of travellers, soldiers and hikers intrepid enough to take on the likes of Sgurr Dearg and 'The Inaccessible Pinnacle.' We pride ourselves on providing the warmest and friendliest place to stay in the Glen and welcome individuals, families and groups alike. We have a well stocked shop on site and new for 2011 we will be offering evening catering and breakfast available to order at the hostel.

For those who would just like to unwind or catch a breath of fresh air away from the city, we are just 1.5 miles from the fresh sea air and marbled volcanic sands of Glenbrittle beach and 7 from the world famous Talisker Distillery. With an abundance of marine wildlife and even the occasional glimpse of the aurora borealis we are already looking forward to welcoming you, whatever your reason for visiting.

There is no bus service to/from Glenbrittle - the nearest bus stop is at Carbost, 8 miles from Glenbrittle.

A87 towards Portree. Left at Sligachan on the A863 towards Dunvegan. Left at Drynoch on the B8009 towards Carbost and Talisker Distillery. Left before Carbost on unclassified single track. Road to Glenbrittle - 7 miles from junction. (SatNav advice: If travelling from Fort William to the Isle of Skye, please check ferry times for Mallaig to Armadale. Most SatNav software proposes this ferry journey, which has a limited daytime service).

Please email or call the Glenbrittle Hostel directly if you are unfamiliar with the Isle of Skye and we will make sure to help you get here! Also please note that we do not receive mobile phone coverage here, TV or internet access.

The nearest grocery shop is about 8 miles away but we have an abundance of food stuffs and basics here at the hostel so if your walking don't weigh yourself down with shopping!
Prices are per person per night.
