Why we've chosen Strathspey Mountain Hostel

Offering cracking value, this small, friendly hostel in the village of Newtonmore in the west of the park has just four rooms – two six-bed dorms and two three-bed rooms. There’s an open fire in the lounge area for winter nights (coal, wood and kindling are provided), a fully equipped kitchen, drying room with dehumidifier and free use of a washing machine for muddy clobber. Manager Laurie knows the outdoor scene and can offer information on what to see and do in the Cairngorms and surrounding area – particularly how to get active in sun or snow. A self-catering cottage, Holmfield, sleeps six and is also a bargain. Dorm beds £13, private room £30, Holmfield Cottage £60.
