Surrounded by a wild and spectacular landscape, Durness Smoo offers a true hostelling experience in simple and relaxed accommodation.
Durness Smoo Youth Hostel
From the youth hostel you can venture out to explore moorland, mountains, sea cliffs, beaches and waterfalls. On a clear night the starry skies are incredible - especially if you’re fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights. A refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, John Lennon himself holidayed in Durness for many years.
Local attractions include the infamous Smoo Cave (just beside the youth hostel), Cape Wrath, Handa Island and Balnakiel Craft Village. Hillwalkers will love Foinaven, Ben Hope, Ben Loyal and Cranstackie and, for those wishing simply to relax, Balnakiel Beach and Faraid Head are beautiful sandy beaches with large sand dunes to explore.
The hostel is relaxed and friendly, providing a simple base from which to explore the area. There are multi-share and private rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, drying room and cosy lounge heated by a coal-burning stove.
Dogs are welcome at Durness Smoo, for a small fee, when guests book a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is allocated.
