The Smugglers Hostel

Situated in the picturesque village of Tomintoul, The Smugglers Hostel is the highest hostel in the Scottish Highlands. Tomintoul is a hidden gem in the awe-inspiring Cairngorms National Park and a fantastic location to base yourself for a range of outdoor activities, photography, wildlife watching, whisky tasting and so much more!

Here, you will be surrounded by stunning countryside and able to explore the rugged landscapes of hidden glens that made this area a hub for illicit stills and whisky smuggling! Calling The Glenlivet, Tamnavulin, Glenfarclas, Cragganmore and of course, Tomintoul Distillery as it's whisky neighbours, the hostel is the perfect base for discovering the amber offerings of Speyside.

An affiliate of SYHA with a 4 star VisitScotland grading, The Smugglers Hostel has 20 beds across four dorms, including one en-suite. With great facilities, friendly and informative staff and a superb common room, so you are assured a warm welcome and comfortable stay at great rates from £15 per night.
