All Gatliff Hostels Closed (January 2022)

With great regret I report that all our hostels remain closed.   This applies to Berneray, Howmore and Rhenigidale.  This will remain the case for the foreseeable future.

In December the indoor mingling rules in Scotland were made more restrictive and the number of people allowed to mingle indoors was reduced. Our shared kitchens and common rooms are the heart of our hostels. Therefore it remains impossible for us to re-open.

Trustees are keeping the matter under continual review and will up-date this site as soon as there is firm news.

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 or can offer the Trust practical help.
