Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel is an atmospheric old shooting lodge in the heart of Cairngorm National Park and an ideal base for hiking, biking, climbing and winter sports.
Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel
The hostel offers a range of comfortable private rooms and spacious shared accommodation with separate washrooms. Guests can opt for a continental breakfast, lunch or evening meal served in the dining room or take advantage of the large, well-equipped self-catering kitchen.
The hostel is licensed, so you can relax and enjoy a locally brewed beer or a glass of wine in the cosy lounge, while taking in the view across the Cairngorms. Other facilities include a pool table, laundry, drying room and secure bike store. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception. Due to the hostel’s remote location, WiFi is free but access is limited.
Local activities include hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, pony trekking, watersports and fishing. Most activities take place on the Rothiemurchus Estate, a fabulous area with many easy paths through the Caledonian Pine Forest. The Scottish Whisky Trail is also nearby and, for something different, visit the Reindeer Centre, where you can feed and learn about these friendly free-roaming animals.
The hostel sits across the road from the banks of Loch Morlich, which boasts the highest sandy beach in the UK.
Dogs are welcome at Cairngorm Lodge, for a small fee, when booking a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is available.
The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.
