We have booked six places at this unique hostel, accessible only by train followed by a 20 minute walk, or a very long walk from the Laggan valley. The cost is £20 a night; further details of the hostel at https://www.syha.org.uk/where-to-stay/highlands/loch-ossian.aspx.
For the first time in its 85 year history Loch Ossian Youth Hostel has hot showers. This, and other facility enhancements including a fridge, is thanks to the development of locally sourced hydro power to complement its existing micro generated solar power supply.
The previous two weekends at the hostel were fully booked by early August, and this weekend is the last one of the current season unless you want to book the whole hostel. If you want to book one of the IMC places you will need to be quick, and if you want to book a place with SYHA direct, the same applies.
