The Gatliff Hebridean Hostels Trust operates two-star hostels at Berneray
(left) and Howmore (right),
allowing visitors to share in the life and culture of the local communities. The Trust
supports three hostels in total, each in an idyllic position: Berneray on North Uist, Howmore
on South Uist and Rhenigidale on North Harris. Each is looked after by a warden and has electricity,
piped water and WCs. Beds, duvets, cooking equipment, stoves and cutlery are provided. Personal
sheet sleeping bags are necessary and may be rented, if required, at £3 per visit. These 'distinctive
hostels of destination' are normally open all year. Bednight fees: £20 for adults; £10 for under 18s.
Reservations are not possible, but beds are usually available. Camping with use of the hostels' cooking
and communal facilities is available at Howmore and Rhenigidale Hostels only at a cost of £12 per adult
per night (£6 for under 18s). Please note that the hostels can only accept
cash or cheque payments but should soon be ready to accept credit/debit card payments.
