Nestling on a hillside above the town, with wonderful views, our characterful and comfy hostel provides everything you’ll need after a day in the hills. Hot powerful showers, comfy beds, drying area for soggy kit and above all, a friendly relaxed welcome! Feel free to use our fully equipped self-catering kitchen or if its sunny you can head out onto the patio and cook alfresco on our hostel BBQ. In the evening put your feet up in our sociable, elegant lounge in front of a real fire or stroll down to the choice of local pubs and restaurants that are literally minutes away.

Our Sunny dining room has fabulous views out over the garden and to the mountains beyond. Its a great space to get together with other guests whilst sipping a free cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. It is also where we serve our optional continental style breakfast which is great value at only £2.00 for a wee bit of everything.

Our lounge has got the most amazing views from our original stained glass windows. From here you can see for miles and miles across the surrounding countryside. Its a brilliant social space to relax after a fun day in the great outdoors. With a real coal fire, comfy sofas and beanbags, loads of books & local info and musical instruments.

You can start (or end) the ‘West Highland Way’ & the ‘Great Glen Way’ in Fort William, hike or bike along mountain trails, canoe or kayak on the vast array of local water, go for a boat trip on Loch Linnhe to visit the seals or just take it easy amidst the wonderful scenery. Even in winter Fort William stays busy with skiing, snow-boarding, mountaineering & ice-climbing all nearby to our fantastic location.

Ben Nevis – Britain’s highest mountain, sits just around the corner and below it, Glen Nevis – perhaps Scotland’s prettiest glen, with its wonderful waterfalls and ancient pine forest. Dramatic and eerie, Glencoe & Glenfinnan, and the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven also await a few miles down the road and make excellent day trips from the hostel.

Our friendly award winning staff are committed to ensuring you make the most out of your time in Fort William. They also LOVE the outdoors and can give you their ‘top tips’ to help you plan your adventure.

Whether you plan to chill out or perhaps test your skills on a World Cup mountain bike trail…Fort Willy Backpackers is the place for you!
