Hi to all!
Just a quick message, to let all the forum members know, that the SYHA youth hostel, Loch Ness at Altsigh is closed.  Huh So if you are walking the Great Glen Way this year, this option for a pleasant night's rest, is no longer available. Best make alternate arrangements quickly before everywhere around Invermoriston gets booked-up. Let's hope the new owners open the hostel up again soon! See you on the trail.  Grin

Thanks for the headsup, Jack, which was news to us until we revised our guidebook for 2016. However, it's worth pointing out that Briar Bank B&B in Allltsigh is still open. Although that is obviously more expensive than the hostel, it is usefully located and gets good reviews, though I've never stayed there. Although the High Route is brilliant for walkers, its terrain is unsuitable for normal bikes and it's great to have accommodation so close to Loch Ness.

 Shocked Roll Eyes Great news for those Great Glen Way-ers. The hostel on Loch Ness at Altsigh, is now open for business again renamed "The Lochside Hostel, Loch Ness" and will be taking bookings for the new year shortly. They have a new up-to-date website, giving details of what they will be providing for us intrepid travellers. I wish the new owners the very best of luck, in their new venture, and will be booking my place, come the new year.
