I regret to report that all our hostels remain closed. This applies to Berneray, Howmore and Rhenigidale. This will remain the case for the foreseeable future (July 2021).
Although the islands are in Protection Level 0 (Zero) there are still restrictions on social distancing and mingling indoors which make it impossible for us to re-open.
We have shared dormitories and shared kitchens. Therefore we are unable to meet the social distancing requirements. Trustees are keeping the matter under continual review. We will keep you all posted via this site.
It is impractical for anyone to camp in the hostel grounds.
In the meantime, thank you for your continued understanding and support. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
