Half-way House

The half-way house at Alltsigh was once a tearoom where travellers could rest on the long road between Fort Augustus and Inverness. The tea room closed down and the building was reopened in 1943, as the Altsaigh (Alltsigh) Youth Hostel. The hostel is still in business today.

Interestingly, in 1934, for one year only, the Scottish Youth Hostel Association opened a youth hostel in premises (former Forestry Commission cottages) across the road from the present youth hostel in Alltsigh.
