About Saddle Mountain Hostel

Saddle Mountain Hostel is owned and run by Gregor (Greg) Barclay and Helen Cunningham.

Greg comes from Aberdeen in the north of Scotland. He has lived and worked in Scotland all his life, but has always preferred holidays to the work part. Greg used to be a solicitor. But now he is a part-time barista.

Helen was born in London to Irish parents. Her love of the outdoors was triggered by a placemat of Glencoe (ask her and she will tell you the story). She began her journey north in the 1980s, studying map-making in Newcastle, and finally reached Scotland in 1993.

“We married in 1996 and immediately started planning an escape from our jobs. In 1998/99 we went on a round the world trip which took us to Fiji, New Zealand, South America and the Pyrenees. On our return we settled in Inverness and have lived in the Highlands ever since.”

“When we’re not working or outdoors we love the cinema and can often be found at Eden Court in Inverness.”
