Chase The Wild Goose Hostel

Our hostel is located near Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, in the heart of the Sottish Highlands. We are friendly people and our guests are many and of various nationalities and backgrounds, but most are enthusiastic about meeting people and enjoying the Great Outdoors, for walking, climbing, mountain biking, kayaking and touring.

Our hostel is a very comfortable, relaxed and friendly place to be. There's hard work to be done, but the reward is to stay in a peaceful place for a while, meeting new friends, with lots of time off to explore.

I spent a around a month in the hostel, we had to close due to COVID-19 but my time there was amazing! The hostel is really cozy and well equipped and the nature there is wonderful
Daniel and Jo were always really nice and helpful and very respectful on the work done by all the volunteers :)

From day one, I felt completely welcome. Jo, Daniel, and Michael (not to mention my two fellow volunteers: Lu and Charlie) are amazing <3! They're kind and understanding, great at explaining your tasks and helping you out. The hostel itself is super cozy and feels very homey, and the tasks are not difficult at all (mind you, they require hard work as anything but it's nothing brutal xD). Banavie is lovely, very green, nice and peaceful, with a nice pub nearby and a Co-Op to get some stuff to cook. All in all, a wonderful experience I'd do over and over again :D Thanks so much!

I lived an unforgettable experience in "Chase The Wild Goose". The hosts are really nice people who make you feel like at home. They are generous, close, funny and help you in whatever you need. Besides, the hostel, is cosy, comfortable and quiet.
In relation with the tasks, are easy: rooms, bathrooms or kitchen and lounge, and every day, folding sheets.
Fort William is a gorgeous and peaceful place and you can visit near it Glencoe, Steall Waterfall, Glenfinann, Ben Nevis or Loch Ness.
All my love to Jo, Daniel and Michael and my dear roommates Giovana, Sam and Fernando, I'll miss you!:)
