Welcome to our hostel

Situated in Rowardennan, at the foot of Ben Lomond, and on the West Highland Way.. With spacious, comfortable bunk rooms, a large dining kitchen where you can cook your own meals, large lounge with woodstove, hot showers and a great drying room, the bunkhouse is an ideal haven after your hard day in the great outdoors. We supply tea, coffee & milk and also porridge oats & bread etc for toast for a do- it -yourself breakfast, included in price. Run by the National Trust for Scotland, all profits from the bunkhouse help towards the path repair and other conservation work on Ben Lomond.

Please note that we can no longer accept dogs unless you are booking the whole bunkhouse ( all ten beds).

The Ardess Hidden History Trail is a 1 mile loop walk through the natural Oak woodland behind the bunkhouse, and gives a great insight into past lives in the area.
