This was my first stay here. I had read so much about this hostel for so long. I was firstly attracted by the remoteness of it and secondly by the wildlife. What better time to visit, in the depths of a Scottish winter......... I would firstly like to say Jan could not have been a better hostess. Always asking if... More

Another stunning trip to Ossian 15th to 19th Nov. Whilst connected by a main train line once you are walking down to the remote eco hostel (note: no showers, outdoor compost toilets, self catering) you are really in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by the 7 Munros, Loch Ossian itself and miles of unspoilt landscape. The SYHA staff here (Katrina... More

A remote hide-away in the middle of nowhere. I first visited this hostel over 15 years ago (and spent much of that time running around barefoot and playing with the deer) it is, and continues to be one of my top ten destinations. Either in a family group or otherwise. I cannot put into words the open freedom of the... More

If you like remote unspoiled beauty, then this could be for you. Great setting by a picture perfect loch. There are several achievable hills around plus a lovely walk around the loch itself. Come prepared though, because it's inaccessible by road, the nearest shop is probably Fort William by train, so take plenty of provisions. The nearby Carrour station restaurant,... More

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
