The Glencruitten Hostel provides support and accommodation for young people studying in Oban High School who live too far away to travel every day.
Young people from the islands of Colonsay, Coll, Mull, Lismore, Iona, Kerrera, Gometra, Tiree, Shuna and Easdale as well as from Bridge of Orchy may stay at Glencruitten. With the exception of young people from Coll, Gometra, Tiree and Colonsay, young people are resident between Monday and Friday.
Glencruitten Hostel is fully staffed from Monday to Friday. There are reduced staff members at the weekend to accommodate young people from Coll, Gometra, Tiree and Colonsay who are not always able to return home at the weekend. The Hostel is closed during school holidays.
Glencruitten Hostel's aim is to provide a friendly and caring environment where young people have access to help and support. We operate an Open Door Policy, welcoming young people, parents and family to contact or visit Glencruitten at any time.
More details are available in the Hostel Handbook which can be downloaded in the policies of this website.
If there are any questions or further issues, which you wish to discuss, please feel free to telephone or visit the Hostel.
