With the greatest regret the Trustees have decided to close our three hostels in the Outer Hebrides: Isle of Berneray, Howmore (South Uist) and Rhenigidale, Isle of Harris.
This decision is unprecedented but these are unprecedented times. We believe we have a duty to follow the advice given by the Chief Medical Officers of Scotland and England to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus- COVID 19. We have to do our best to protect our Wardens, Hostellers and, most important, the communities of the Outer Hebrides. We will reopen just as soon as the Chief Medical Officers advise that it is safe to do so. Peter Clarke, Chair Gatliff Hebridean Hostels Trust
