Hartfield House is a Visit Scotland 4 Star hostel, set back from main North Coast 500 road, nestled amongst the mountainous landscape, shady trees, and bubbling river.
The Applecross peninsula boasts a breathtakingly beautiful and dramatic landscape. The main township of Applecross (‘a Chomraich’ in Gaelic, which means 'sanctuary') is located around the picturesque bay and enjoys uninterrupted views over the island of Raasay and the Cuillin Hills of Skye.
Hartfield House is approximately 3/4 mile from the bay, and reached via one of the highest routes in the UK, the Bealach na Ba: from the top, on a good day, you can see the islands of the Outer Hebrides.
With the sheltered waters of the Sound and spectacular mountains right on the doorstep, as well as lots of trails and tracks, Hartfield House is an ideal place to base yourself for walking and trekking, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking and climbing.
A large building set in its own grounds, Hartfield sleeps 50 in a mix of twin, triple, private and dorm rooms. There are hot showers, restful common areas, a dining hall, drying room, laundry, covered area for bikes, kit store, free WiFi, small shop, large garden, and venue for weddings and events. There is a local shop, and three restaurants within a 15 to 30 minute walk or 5 to 10 minutes in the car.
