Winter availability at the newly refurbished Argyll Backpackers
December 1st 2020
Iron age forts, long winding trails and the rugged beauty of the Scottish countryside. With a beautifully refurbished hostel to snuggle up in at the end of the day, bliss.
All bedrooms are ensuite now. The 4 and 6 bunk rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and we have converted the large lounge / dining area into two smaller lounge / dining areas. Access to the kitchen is split for self catering use by two ‘bubbles’.
Argyll Backpackers has remained a favourite for many in part to its astounding location. The atmosphere is unparalleled. Why not escape and enjoy a relaxing weekend in this unspoiled paradise?
