Out and about this summer and looking for great accommodation that offers value for money? Hostelling Scotland could well be the perfect match.

The 91-year-old, not-for-profit, self-funded charity offers a network of 29 VisitScotland quality-assured youth hostels. From cities to islands, beaches to hills and mountains, and all points in between, they offer a warm welcome, flexible and affordable accommodation, and provide a great base for individuals and groups looking to explore and enjoy all that Scotland has to offer.

Destinations such as the islands, Glen Nevis, Oban, Achmelvich, and Torridon are a popular choice for young travellers, couples and families keen to make full use of the shared public spaces, private rooms, or shared dorm accommodation, and facilities such as self-catering kitchens.

There is accommodation on the NC500 route and Skye, while the award-winning, remote and eco-friendly Loch Ossian Youth Hostel is popular with people grabbing the chance to get away from it all in the beautiful surroundings of Rannoch Moor.

City hostels, meanwhile, are popular with groups while an increase in the number of dog-friendly WoofHostels and the option for exclusive private hire (RentaHostel) offer alternative accommodation opportunities and extend the appeal of hostelling to a much broader audience.
