The Saddle Mountain Hostel Story

Our name “Saddle Mountain” combines our love of walking and cycling up mountains. The “Saddle” refers to either a bike saddle or the geographical feature marking the lowest point between mountains.

We’ve taken the inspiration for our colour scheme from the red and white signs marking trekking routes across Europe.

Our main logo is a “mountain”. The red band at the bottom represents the lower slopes of the mountain and the white its snow-capped peaks. Our “saddle” is between the two peaks.

You’ll find our red and white theme throughout the hostel.

You may also notice our “Whompass”, a combined bike wheel and compass, on the outside of the hostel and inside too. Our central location in the Great Glen means you can head in any direction from the hostel for a great day out.
