Glenbrittle Youth Hostel
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.
