Our newly re-furbished, community-owned Hostel lies at heart of South Lochs, a vibrant crofting community rich in wildlife, history and a living Gaelic culture. Originally the schoolmasters house, the Hostel is part of the Ravenspoint Centre which includes a shop, fuel pump, cafe and museum. 

South Lochs, a traditional, Gaelic speaking community, is about a 35 minute drive from the two ferry ports of Stornoway on Lewis and Tarbert on Harris and the Hostel has a bus-stop at the door.

With a choice of four, five and twin-bedded rooms the Hostel can accommodate up to eleven guests. It has a comfortable sitting room, a well-equipped kitchen and washing and drying facilities.  Secure lockers and bicycle storage are also available.

The Hostel offers an ideal base for walkers and cyclists from which to explore the natural, rugged beauty of the area.
