Coastal hostel on the Speyside Way, Moray Firth

Our hostel is situated a few yards from the shore of the Moray Firth. Coastal walks and the Speyside Way start right at the door. In summer, dolphins can sometimes be seen in Cullen Bay. Hostel guests are free to come and go all day as they please. The accommodation is spacious, with a large washing/drying room, bathroom and wetroom shower and a comfortable kitchen and dining area with solid fuel Rayburn. We have two five-bed dorms which are roomy and airy with beds which are solid and hand-crafted and a four-bed ensuite family room. We also have a cottage available on site.

Children, walkers, birders, motorbikers, kayakers, surfers and cyclists welcome

Children love the ‘Hogwarts’ type dorms and enjoy the unrestrictive culture of the hostel. Depending on time of year and availability we may offer discounts for children. Walkers, birders and cyclists appreciate our location and facilities, and motorbikes can be kept in relative seclusion. Provisions are conveniently available in the village of Cullen. Please note that check in is before 9pm and bedrooms are to be vacated by 10am. 

Ensuite private family room available

We have one four-bed private room with ensuite and linen included that is perfect for families. For a couple, the room is £56 per night, for three people £76 per night and for four people £96 per night.  With our excellent self-catering facilities, this is a very comfortable and affordable option for family holiday accommodation.
