All our hostels will reopen on 1st July 2022. Message dated: 27th June 2022

This applies to Gatliff Hostels on Berneray, North Uist; at Howmore, South Uist and at Rhenigidale, Harris.

It gives me the greatest pleasure to announce that all our hostel will re-open for the night of 1st July 2022.  Thank you for your forbearance whilst we were closed.

Sadly, Covid has not gone away.  So please exercise caution in the hostel

We will therefore ask you to respect the personal space of other hostellers.

If you have tested positive for the Covid or if you are exhibiting any of the symptoms of Covid, or had recent contact with someone with Covid, please do not enter this building.  The symptoms are rather like colds or a flu and include high temperature, or a new continuous cough, high temperature or shivering, loss in your sense of taste or smell or a feeling of tiredness or exhaustion.  Full details can be found on the NHS web site:

These caveats are designed to help hostellers, our wardens and the communities in which we operate to stay safe.
