High­land hos­tel’s big birth­day

The Oban Times - - News -

A HIGH­LAND youth hos­tel is cel­e­brat­ing a landmark an­niver­sary.

Rata­gan Youth Hos­tel near Skye has been part of SYHA Hostelling Scot­land for 85 years and to mark the oc­ca­sion it is ap­peal­ing for spe­cial mem­o­ries and cher­ished mo­ments from vis­i­tors who have stayed there.

Gair­loch Sands Youth Hos­tel in Ross-shire has also reached the 85-year mile­stone.

SYHA has said it wants to hear from peo­ple, around the UK and fur­ther afield, who have spent time at two of its long­est-run­ning youth hos­tels and have mem­o­ries, amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences or in­ter­est­ing pho­to­graphs they would be willing to share with keen hostellers past and present.

Opened on May 14, 1932, Rata­gan is a very pop­u­lar choice with hostellers and has one of the best youth hos­tel lo­ca­tions in Scot­land.

Set on the shore of Loch Duich, the hos­tel en­joys un­ri­valled views of the mag­nif­i­cent Five Sis­ters moun­tain range.

The SYHA team would be ex­tremely pleased to hear from hostellers by email at mar­ket­ing@syha.org.uk or by let­ter to SYHA Na­tional Of­fice, 7 Glebe Cres­cent, Stir­ling, FK8 2JA.
