Glenbrittle Youth Hostel is set in rugged scenery at the foot of the Cuillin Ridge, just over a mile from the beach and close to the magical fairy pools. It’s a great place to spend a few days relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.
Glenbrittle has a long tradition of providing a base for walkers and climbers to tackle the famous Cuillin and the Skye Munros. For a less strenuous pace there are coastal and low-level walks for all abilities and weather conditions, wildlife to watch, archaeological sites and geology to explore. The Talisker Distillery is about seven miles away at Carbost. Also not too far away and worth visiting are Dunvegan Castle, Glendale Toy Museum and Colbost Croft Museum.
The youth hostel has a modern self-catering kitchen as well as plenty of dining space. It’s equipped with a drying room and a homely shared lounge area adorned with old photographs of the surrounding area. There are numerous books and games as well as a guitar for the evenings. You’ll also find a small shop on-site which sells basic food items and other essentials, including ice-cream!
