Dun Flodigarry is an independent, family-run hostel which has been welcoming visitors from all over the world since 1992.
The hostel is now closed until March 2015
The hostel is set by the sea and has wonderful views across to Flodigarry Island, Gairloch and the Torridon mountains on the mainland. Flodigarry was once the home of the Jacobite heroine Flora MacDonald, and the area is famous for the distinctive cliffs and rock formations of the Quiraing which towers above the hostel. Hiking trails and rock climbing are accessible directly from the door and we are right on The Skye Trail. Boat trips to St. Kilda, rock climbing, sea kayaking and other adventures are all available in the area.
When you are out and about you may see, amongst other wildlife, otters, basking sharks, whales and both golden and white-tailed eagles. There are also many orchids and other rare flora in the area.
The hostel generates its own electricity, eliminating the need for oil. It is centrally heated and fully equipped with all bedding and sheets provided. There is a spacious kitchen dining room and a separate sitting room, together with laundry and drying rooms. The Flodigarry Hotel in the Skye, with bar and restaurant, is just 100 metres from the door.
The hostel has private rooms as well as beds in dorms, and also welcomes groups. There is a camping area in the grounds.
