THE LOCHSIDE HOSTEL - LOCH NESS
…sleep within reach of the Monster…
CLOSED FOR THE 2023 SEASON! COME VISIT US IN 2024!
Lochside Hostel is wonderfully located right on the shores of the mystical Loch Ness! You can just stroll down to the Loch and paddle in the lapping waves…but beware…there is talk of a MONSTER!!
Fabulous views, comfy dorm beds, extensive kitchen, big and bright lounge and a friendly atmosphere help us welcome in backpackers, cyclists, Great Glen Way-ers, canoeists and of course – the average budget traveller.
Buses from Inverness to Skye and Fort William stop right at our door several times per day, plus we have ample car-parking and a handy shore to beach your boat on, should you be arriving from the Loch itself.
