Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel

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.


Seven miles from Aviemore and just two from the Cairngorm mountain funicular and snowsports area, the lodge is a great base for year-round activities, including hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, pony trekking, watersports and fishing.

Most activities take place on the Rothiemurchus Estate, a fabulous area with many walking and cycling paths through the Caledonian Pine Forest. You’ll find Loch Morlich Watersports centre on the large beach close by or, for something different, visit the Reindeer Centre, where you can feed and learn about these friendly free-roaming animals.

Cairngorm Lodge has great facilities, including a range of multi-share and private rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, bike store, drying room and free WiFi access. Cooked breakfasts, packed lunches and full evening meals are also available. From November to February (and other times, if available) you can rent the whole property for exclusive use with RentaHostel.

Dogs are welcome at Cairngorm Lodge, for a small fee, when guests book a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that a dog friendly room is allocated.

If you cycle up to the base station at Cairngorm, let the staff there know and you will receive a free funicular mountain railway ticket.
