SYHA Hostelling Scotland is working with the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) and Cruise Loch Lomond to organise a special event, on Friday 24th August, that will celebrate the launch of a new, environmentally-friendly way of reaching Rowardennan Youth Hostel, by waterbus, and are delighted to invite you and a guest.

Which will include a short cruise on the Loch, lunch at Rowardennan Youth Hostel and back to Tarbet for early afternoon.

Whether staying at the Rowardennan Youth Hostel or on the West Highland Way, this new daily service from Tarbet to Rowardennan offers a multitude of options for exploring villages, walks and attractions.
