Comfortable hostel sleeping up to 28 in the Cairngorms National Park, ideal for families and outdoor activity groups

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Ballater Hostel, Ballater, Aberdeenshire, sleeps 1-28 in 6 bedrooms.

Ballater Hostel (formerly Habitat @Ballater) is a 25 bed (sleeps 28) self-catering hostel situated in the centre of Ballater, near Balmoral, on the east side of the Cairngorms National Park, North East Scotland. Perfect for mountaineering, hill walking and cycling groups, family gatherings, a place to celebrate your last Munro, Christmas dos, university groups, a place just to get away from it all.

Perfectly situated for exploring the Cairngorms National Park with a multitude of walks right on the doorstep – from high level Munros to low level forests. You can cycle, climb, geocache, ski (I’d wait for some snow first)…taste whisky, visit a castle, go fishing, horse riding, play golf – there is so much here it’s impossible to list it all.

Ballater Hostel has two traditional dormitories, both of which can be used on a sole use basis, and four private rooms. All are en suite and have comfortable beds, personal power points and reading lights. Guests can either book the whole hostel, a room or just a bed, with no minimum stay.
