Loch Ness Youth Hostel, Invermoriston

The Loch Ness Youth Hostel is situated by the banks of Loch Ness near Invermoriston. It was taken over by the Scottish Youth Hostel association in 1943 when it was known as Alltsigh Youth Hostel. Formerly the Half-way House Hotel.

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.

The name 'Alltsigh' (Aultsigh, Altsigh), meaning the resting burn, is taken from the stream running into Loch Ness, beside the hostel. The last wolf (also known as Alltsigh) was shot in the area, during the 19th century.
