Welcome to Balmaha Bunkhouse

Member of Independent Hostels UK

Situated on the banks of Loch Lomond, our cosy self-catering bunkhouse offers excellent accommodation along the West Highland Way. We can accommodate up to 12 people at a reasonable price for up to a week, making Balmaha Bunkhouse a great base for families and small groups.

Our bunkhouse has four bedrooms, two shared bathrooms, a common room with kitchen and laundry facilities, a small drying room, and outdoor seating. We re-open on Wednesday 27 March 2024, after a winter break while we make some further improvements: photos of the rooms will be available once this work is completed.

What we offer: Bedding | Towels | Breakfast provisions | Washer-dryer combo

Balmaha is a tiny village on the east side of Loch Lomond, less than an hour’s drive away from both Stirling and Glasgow. With a waterbus link to Luss on the west side of the loch, Balmaha is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring Britain’s largest lake and the National Park.


Comfortable rooms inspired by our beautiful surroundings in spring and summer; from yellow gorse and purple heather, to the clear blue waters and lush greenery of Loch Lomond. Click the buttons to find out more about each room!


We have two shared, mixed bathrooms; one upstairs and one downstairs. Each bathroom has a wash basin, shower, and toilet. We provide soap, shower gel, and 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner.
