Accommodation

Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning Cairngorm Lodge, only a short distance from the famous Loch Morlich, and with view of the stunning Cairngorm Mountain Range. Our accommodation offers our group comfortable accommodation in the heart of a beautiful Cairngorms National Park, 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.
