Perched on the banks of legendary Loch Ness, The Lochside Hostel offers unrivalled views of Scotland’s most famous loch, and direct access to the water's edge! Perfect for walks, monster spotting and even a dip into the magical waters.
As well as our unique location, and lovely facilities we are so easy to get to! All busses from Inverness, Skye and Fort William stop at our door. If you travel by car we make a great base to explore most of the Highlands from Skye to Ullapool to Ben Nevis to Inverness to Aviemore and the rest.
Great for hikers and Cyclists – we are on the Great Glen Way !
Canoeists – a jaw-dropping expanse of water at your doorstep!
However you travel, you are assured of a great welcome at our delightful hostel.
Lochside is a pick up point for MacBackpackers Tours. If you'd like to book onto a tour or find out more info then chat to our receptionist when you arrive at the hostel.
Our location means that you could come prepared with food to cook [in our extensive self-catering kitchen], though we also sell some food to cook at reception, we also sell beer and wine! And snacks. Breakfast is available from £2, and free tea and coffee all day.
