Newsletters

We publish two newsletters:

  • The annual newsletter of the Crofters’ Hostels.  It has been published every year since 1962 (except for 1999) and is based on comments made by hostellers in the hostel log book. You will find that these contain thoughts about life, the universe and everything, and also helpful tips about places to visit and how to enjoy the islands.
  • The Hebridean Hostellers newsletter. This is published twice a year. The first edition appeared in April 1984. Longer articles about your visit to the islands or your experiences or observations on island life are welcome.

NEWSLETTER NO 47 HEBRIDEAN

If you keep a log or a diary or took pictures which you would like to share, we are always pleased to see them. And the best may be published in our newsletter and/or on our web site (with full acknowledgement).

If you have visited Berneray, Howmore or Rhenigidale and made an entry into the house logbook – you may have been quoted in either publication. Click and see! If you haven’t been mentioned, next time you visit the hostels make sure you say something in the logbook. But be sure to leave your full name in the log book! We would really like to hear how you enjoyed your stay and what interesting experiences you had. Other hostellers could benefit from your discoveries.
