Accommodation

Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning Glen Nevis Hostel, only a short distance from the famous Fort William in the Grampian Mountains National Park. It offers our group comfortable accommodation sitting at the foot of Ben Nevis, with a wide range of private en-suite rooms and comfortable shared dorms with secure under-bed storage, USB power sockets and bedside lighting for every bed, surrounded by stunning scenery at every angle. After a long day hiking, we can head back to our accommodation and enjoy a tasty home-cooked meal.

Our accommodation for the trip will be in 4-bed and 6-bed dorms, exclusive to our group. If you’re booking with a friend let us know and we’ll make sure you get a room together. 

NOTE: There is limited car parking at this hostel, and is first come first served.

Food

Our meals for the weekend will be prepared on-site at our accommodation, for breakfast and dinner. Saturday lunch is not included, as we will be out all day, so please bring something to eat for Saturday lunch, such as a packed lunch.
