Argyll Backpackers Hostel

Welcome to our custom built hostel, with stunning views over Loch Fyne, towards Arran & Cowal; great for island hopping or touring Kintyre/mid Argyll. Our rooms: 2x dble, 2x2, 2x4 & 1x6 (4&6 ensuite)


As a new, fully accessible hostel, we're gradually building our bikepacking and leisure cyclist base.

We are very keen to encourage cyclists not only to stay over for one night with us on their planned route but hopefully to spend a few days exploring the many fabulous sights and experiences this part of Argyll can offer. As well as the NCN78, the Wild About Argyll Trail and the Kintyre Way we can also recommend other circuits and itineries.

We have cycle racks under cover for secure storage and will happily provide tools for DIY repairs, or arrange transport if required, to our local cycle repair shop if spares or more technical support is needed. We can also offer facilities for bike washing.

The hostel's minibus, driven by our knowledgable guide, is available for private hire at reasonable rates e.g. if you want to take a rest from cycling to explore local sites or just an evening in a local hotel or pub! Why not join one of our popular 'sunset' tours when we drive you to a picturesque spot overlooking the Paps of Jura - feel free to bring your own dram!
For guests interested in the history and culture of the area we can point you not only to well known local standing stone sites but also to rock and cup markings, burial cairns, famous landmarks and castles. Again, we can organise this as a day tour by minibus tours from the hostel.
Please note that minibus tours are subject to minimum of 4 guests.

We've also linked up with wildlife, kayaking and boat trip businesses locally and can arrange many activities from the hostel.

Maybe you're interested in whisky or gin distillery tours? We can help you plan a diverse itinary allowing you to enjoy a tipple without worrying about finding you're way back to the hostel!

We'd love to help you make the most of your time cycling in Argyll so please contact us for more information.
