Scotland, UK: in the heart of the Cairngorms national Park and very near Glenshee Ski Centre where you can see Rock Ptramigan. Scoticus Red Grouse are very common in the moors around the hostel. This is also a good place to go for a walk and look for Scottish Crossbill, Capercaillie and Black Grouse.
Very close to the bus stop for buses to and from Aberdeen and near several open-air bars in the village. There is no public transport up to the ski lifts but it’s very easy to hitchhike.
There are all sorts of rooms, from private and family rooms to 8-bed dorms (45 places in total). A great option for the budget traveller.
There is internet and a self-service laundry for washing and drying clothes.
Check-in can be late (from 5pm- 9.30pm) and until 10pm at the weekend. They close the building at 11pm and at 4.30pm but it is open all day on Saturdays.
