Hot show­ers at re­mote hos­tel

The Oban Times - - News -

FOR THE first time in 85 years, a re­mote High­land youth hos­tel can pro­vide hot show­ers.

Loch Os­sian Youth Hos­tel, on Ran­noch Moor, has con­nected to a hy­dro scheme and up­graded its ser­vices. The hos­tel now has a fridge, elec­tric heaters and full laun­dry ser­vices mean­ing all bed linen is now pro­vided by SYHA.

One of Scot­land’s most re­mote hos­tels, it’s only ac­ces­si­ble by catch­ing a train to Cor­rour Sta­tion, the high­est main­line rail­way in the UK.

Jan Robin­son, Loch Os­sian man­ager, said: ‘ We are ex­cited to be con­nected to hy­dro power gen­er­ated lo­cally on the Cor­rour Es­tate. We are as ‘green’ as ever. We have been able to up­grade our fa­cil­i­ties, of­fer­ing our guests much more com­fort, es­pe­cially hot show­ers.’
