Great news is that the new campsite at the idyllic Kyle of Tongue Hostel and Holiday Park will be opening this year. This means even larger groups of friends and family can stay in this awe-inspiring setting on the shores of the Kyle of Tongue.
Even if you don’t book the whole hostel you can mix hostel rooms with camping to add a new dimension to your holiday. The older members of your group could opt for private rooms, or even the extra comfort of the premium private rooms with magnificent views, while the younger and more adventurous ones could live on the wild side and camp on the shores.
