Rowardennan Youth Hostel sits in an idyllic location on the banks of Loch Lomond with unobstructed views and the West Highland Way passing by the gate.
You can choose to laze on the beach, fish, or climb Scotland's most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond (974m and right behind the hostel). A boat cruise up the loch is the most relaxing way to explore this area, although many choose to walk the West Highland Way. Rowardennan is a welcome stop off point for those about to attempt the next 20 miles to our youth hostel in Crianlarich!
