Go green and carbon neutral; Years ago we bought a 75+ hectare woodland in the Scottish Highlands that absorbs more than the total CO2 emissions from fuel used in our MacBackpackers hostels and bus company. We also try our best to re-cycle everything (with your help) and our electricity is all sourced from renewable, non-nuclear supplies. Stay with us for a great holiday and minimal environmental impact!

Guests also enjoy the benefit of access to the lively, bustling High Street Hostel across the road with its wide range of facilities.

Step outside and be at the centre of it all.
