The Scaladale Centre

Outer Hebrides

The Scaladale Centre is a newly built hostel and activity centre, situated in Ardvourlie on the Isle of Lewis and Harris in the beautiful Western Isles. Surrounded by mountains and the sea, this is a great all-year-round location for outdoor enthusiasts, groups and families. The facilities include bunks in dormatory rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, a spacious dining area and a large drying room. At the end of the day, sit back in the large open lounge and enjoy the stunning views of Loch Seaforth and the Harris Hills. We have secure storage for bikes and can offer a wide range of outdoor activities during your stay, including sea-kayaking and mountain biking. In winter we even have our own ice rink!
