Chase The Wild Goose HOSTEL,Fort William Information
A very warm welcome to Chase The Wild Goose Hostel. Located just a short distance from Fort William town centre, the hostel is an ideal base for climbing Ben Nevis, visiting the Nevis Range and riding the Jacobite Steam Train (aka Hogwarts Express). This is a fantastic hostel in Fort William, with friendly environment and beautiful surroundings. The hostel is located at Banavie, close to the Caledonian Canal with the Lochy Bar and Moorings Hotel just a stones throw away for meals and refreshments after a long day on the hill or touring the Scottish Highlands. THE HOSTEL provides shared accommodation to meet the budget accommodation needs of individuals, families, backpackers and small groups. Theres a small self-catering kitchen should you want to cook your own meals, but you can buy a fantastic 'All-you-can-eat-anytime' continental breakfast for just a few pounds. You can eat it any time, even before you go to bed. Being a little out of town we hope to offer a better nights sleep before your energetic day on the hills than perhaps you might receive in a town centre establishment. OUR GUESTS - The hostel is also a popular stop-over for enthusiasts on the 3-peaks challenge, walkers of the Great Glen Way and West Highland Way and caters for visitors to the Mountain Bike challenges nearby, water sports enthusiasts and cxan even organise a mountain guide to take you up Ben Nevis.
