I came here by myself after having cycled from Scarborough to Bridge of Orchy, and my stay at Loch Ossian was certainly a most delightful notch to add onto my journey. Like many places in Scotland, Loch Ossian is truly like nowhere else in the world that I've been to before. I got off the train at Corrour just as... More

We came as a group of explorers on a long hike, camping nearby. The manageress was lovely, and even though we weren't staying in the hostel, let us use her toilets and water, as well as cleaning out a shed for us to play cards and keep our bags in. She really went out of her way for us, and... More

I visited Loch Ossian with a bunch of girlfriends. We go away for a weekend once every year and decided this year to visit Loch Ossian. Loch Ossian was used as a location in the film Trainspotting and is near Fort William. There is a lovely restaurant at the Train Station which I thought weird as it's in the middle... More

Loch Ossian is beautiful and easy to get to from the train at Corrour. We have been to the hostel before when walking in this area. It is advertised by SYHA as a Rustic Hostel so be prepared - there are no showers and the toilets are outside. Importantly if you arrive back from a wet walk the drying facilities... More

Loch Ossian Hostel is in a beautiful remote location. We booked the hostel, and the rooms in Corrour Station House Restaurant for a group of 25 of varying ages for a 50th birthday celebration in early March. The hostel sleeps 20. The warden, Jan, as previous reviews have noted, is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The hostel was warm with... More

The location is amazing but its basic so be aware of this. The hostel is about a mile from Corrour train station along a track which is very exposed in bad weather. When you get there you are greeted my Jan who lives next to the hostel and is very friendly and helpful. The hostel itself has room for 20... More

This place has an amazing view and ideal location for the area. But we when we were there selfish idiots from Kilsyth partied until 03:00 in the morning and kept putting the lights on in the dorm. No one had a decent sleep. Will not be going back. Shame. No management of residents.

We only stayed for one night on a munro bagging trip. We were greeted by Jan the hostel manager, a lovely warm and friendly lady. The hostel was clean and warm, and that night full. All 12 bunks in the male dorm were full, it was a great atmosphere, there were 3 other groups as well as ours and we... More

Though I thought that this was an excellent place/stay, it should be recognised that this is a Youth Hostel and the accommodation is reflective of this, so the rooms are male bunk beds for 12 and 8 female bunkbeds, with a nice cosy communal kitchen come living room. But the real reason most people I guess come here is for... More

Scenery magnificent, great location for cheap fishing or bagging munros. Rustic living on a budget. Staff are amazing -... More
