Applecross Youth Hostel

Applecross Youth Hostel

Visit the spectacular Applecross peninsula to experience the west coast of Scotland at its best. With the sheltered waters of the Sound and spectacular mountains right on the doorstep, Hartfield House is an ideal place to base yourself for walking and trekking, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking and climbing.

Hartfield House is approximately 3/4 of a mile off the main road, which skirts the bay and stands at the foot of the glen following the line of the Applecross river.

Originally the old hunting lodge on the Applecross Estate, it is a large old building set in its own grounds and sleeps 50 in a mix of twin, triple, dorm and private bedrooms. Hartfield House is a Scottish Hostelling Affiliate Youth Hostel.
