Statement for Hartfield House & The Bunkhouse Applecross:

We are sad to announce that, as of today, Friday 20 March 2020, we have closed Hartfield House hostel & The Bunkhouse until 30 April 2020. We apologise to all of our guests who may have bookings during this time, and will be contacting each one of you separately. For those of you with bookings after 30 April, we remain open but based on Government guidelines this could change. This is, we feel, the right decision for our staff, for you our customers, and for our community.

The changing situation with Coronavirus is affecting us all throughout the UK and the world. Here in Applecross we have a high population of elderly and vulnerable people and we need to do everything we can to protect them.


We are lucky enough to live and work in a truly outstanding landscape, and we want to share it with you, our visitors when the current restrictions on travel have been lifted. We hope you will consider making Applecross part of your holiday in the future and in the meantime, we will continue to tempt you with pictures of the wonderful things you will be able to see and do here in the future.


Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you in our lovely part of the world some time soon.

Thank you. The Hartfield team.

It comprises a Visit Scotland 4 Star hostel (sleeping 31 people), The Bunkhouse (sleeping 19), a venue for weddings and events, and a base for group activities such as yoga and artist’s retreats, walking and climbing clubs.

A large building set in its own grounds, Hartfield sleeps 50 people in a mix of single, twin, triple, private and dorm rooms. There are hot showers, restful common areas, a dining hall, drying room, laundry, covered area for bikes, kit store, free WiFi, small tuck shop, large garden, and venue for weddings and events. The complex can be booked exclusively or on an individual basis.

The Applecross peninsula boasts a breathtakingly beautiful and dramatic landscape. The main township of Applecross (‘a Chomraich’ in Gaelic, which means 'sanctuary') is located around the picturesque bay and enjoys uninterrupted views over the island of Raasay and the Cuillin Hills of Skye.

Hartfield House is approximately 3/4 mile from the bay, and reached via one of the highest routes in the UK, the Bealach na Ba; from the top, on a good day, you can see the islands of the Outer Hebrides.
