On the northern shore of Loch Gairloch, with magnificent sea and mountain views and access to fantastic sandy beaches, this is a great base for exploring the North West Highlands on a budget, offering guests a range of accommodation from dorm beds to comfortable private rooms.
A light breakfast is available to pre-book or you can self-cater in the recently refurbished guest kitchen and dining room. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to buy from reception and the nearest shop is only a five minute walk away. In the evening, enjoy a beer, malt whisky or glass of wine while relaxing in the cosy lounge with panoramic views over Gairloch, the Torridon hills, Skye Cullins and outer Hebrides (on a good day)!
There’s onsite parking for 13 cars.
Gairloch Sands is one of our dog-friendly hostels. For more information, check the section on ‘travelling with your best friend’!
