About
Description
Loch Ossian Youth Hostel is a small, homely eco youth hostel, situated on the banks of Loch Ossian with exquisite views. Our eco hostel has a fully equipped self-catering kitchen but no fridge. Perishables can More be kept cool in the north facing washrooms or in the loch! Drying is available on two overhead racks and boot stands by the fire. Although there are no showers, the wash rooms have hot water and towels are available for hire or purchase. Loch Ossian has a small shop with 'Beyond the Beaten Track' ready meals, a range of snacking essentials, postcards and sundries, such as midge repellent! At Loch Ossian Youth Hostel the staff are very proud of the eco-hostel status. Electricity is provided by a wind turbine, composting toilets are used and a reed bed is used to soak away for grey water. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding. Less
