Glen Nevis Youth Hostel re-opens after £2m revamp
Hostelling Scotland’s Glen Nevis Youth Hostel in Fort William, Lochaber, has re-opened following an eight-month £1.2m redevelopment project.
The youth hostel in the popular Highlands outdoors town was stripped back to the bare shell before a major transformation into an exciting contemporary living space.
A spokesperson said that the renovation project highlights Hostelling Scotland‘s commitment to a continual programme of modernisation across the network.
What’s new: Glen Nevis Youth Hostel?
The new youth hostel offers a mix of private en-suite rooms and shared accommodation making it the perfect stay for individual travellers, families and groups.
Guest catering is available in the hostel along with the opportunity for visitors to relax and take in the views from the new large decked area.
Guests also benefit from a modern, spacious self-catering kitchen, comfortable open plan living and dining spaces with panoramic views over the spectacular Nevis mountain range, and a welcoming wood burning stove for those cooler evenings.
The redevelopment of Glen Nevis Youth Hostel, which sits in a fantastic location at the foot of Ben Nevis, follows recent Youth Hostel development projects at Aberdeen, Loch Ossian, Achmelvich Beach, Oban and Lochranza on the Isle of Arran.
Hostelling Scotland is a self-funding charitable organisation with 34 hostels located throughout Scotland, accommodating 380,000 guests every year, with a turnover of £9m and an estimated contribution to the Scottish visitor economy of £25m.
