Are you looking for somewhere to take time out in the
Scottish Highlands? Perhaps climb Ben Nevis, or even take a train ride (like Harry Potter) on
the Jacobite (aka Hogwarts Express) along the West Highland Line? Then look
no further. Chase The Wild Goose Hostel at Banavie, near Fort William is a great place to take time out.
Being located out of town you will enjoy a good night's sleep.
The hostel is in great
condition, is lovely and clean and has dedicated staff ready

travellers, climbers, walkers, families and small walking
groups in particular, the Hostel sleeps up to 48 persons in a
choice of two 4-bed rooms, two 5-bed rooms, one 6-bed room
and three 8-bed rooms.

out just along the canal-side. The train station is 150 metres away and there
are good bus links too. Take a distillery tour, ride the Gondola to the
restaurant on Nevis Range, enjoy a mouth-watering take-away fish supper at
