The station house was built in 2000 by Corrour Estate. The SYHA has refurbished the building and the new facilities will include 4 private rooms (incorporating 1 x single, 1 x twin, 1 x double and 1 x 4 bedded), and a licensed café/restaurant where guests and visitors can enjoy good home-cooked food in a warm and friendly environment.
For those wanting a quieter and more rustic stay, Loch Ossian hostel, which used to serve as the waiting room for the steamer which would take guests who had arrived by train down the loch to the former Corrour Lodge, will remain open. This cute hostel is situated right on the water’s edge and with one cosy common room heated by a stove, it provides a very atmospheric place to stay. The dry toilets and lack of showers may mean some hostellers will prefer the facilities at the Station House.
The remote setting on the northern edge of Rannoch Moor can be accessed from the stunning West Highland Line between Rannoch Station to the south and Tulloch Station to the north. Munros which can be easily accessed from either hostel include Beinn na Lap, Sgor Gaibhre and Carn Dearg, more gentle options include some excellent Corbett routes and a circuit of Loch Ossian.
