The Hostel provides a great location for exploring the Cairngorms National Park.  Follow in the footsteps of whisky smugglers as you explore the rugged landscape of hidden glens and vast open spaces that made this area a hub for illicit stills and whisky smuggling!  Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or more leisurely traveller you will find plenty to fill your days with awe and wonder whilst using The Smugglers Hostel as your base.

The Smugglers is an independent hostel run by the local community development trust and all surplus profits are reinvested back into the community, so your stay really does make a difference to a rural economy!  An affiliate of SYHA with a 4 star VisitScotland  grading, the hostel provides family friendly accommodation at great rates.

Situated in the picturesque village of Tomintoul within the Glenlivet Estate, the hostel makes a great base for exploring the local area or as an overnight stay on a number of walking or cycling routes.
