We already know that Invergarry rocks but it’s about time everyone else does!
Saddle Mountain Hostel is a popular stopping off point on the way to Skye and the Outer Hebrides, breaking a long journey for those travelling from the south. It’s also a firm favourite with hillwalkers climbing Munros and Corbetts. Unfortunately, it would be fair to say not many people come to visit Invergarry itself. This is a shame because there’s so much to do here.
If you’re into the outdoors you’re in luck!
- You can climb our nearest mountain, Ben Tee, straight from the hostel front door.
- If going uphill isn’t for you we’ve got plenty of lower-level walks from our doorstep taking in the River Garry and Loch Oich.
- If you’ve got a bike there are plenty of forest tracks and the Caledonia Way to cycle along.
- There are opportunities to get out on the water too. You can join a white water rafting trip on the River Garry or take a more gentle paddle on Loch Oich.
If history is more your thing Invergarry has its own ruined castle on the shores of Loch Oich. You can also visit the Invergarry and Fort Augustus Railway Museum to see the former Invergarry Station and a small section of railway track being brought back to life.
And if you need one more reason to visit our village how about the Invergarry Primary Rocks Art Trail? Exploring our local area has become more colourful this summer. Local primary school children and artists have been hard at work creating beautifully painted rocks which have been placed at various sites throughout our area. The art trail is in place until the end of August. Ask us for more details about this and all the other great things you can do in Invergarry on your next stay at Saddle Mountain Hostel.
Surely all that’s worth spending a night or two with us. Let’s put Invergarry on the map!
