REINVENTING THE MEAL


Our food offer has grown over the years – helping you enjoy your holiday even more


I can hardly believe that I have been Food and Beverage Manager for SYHA for more than two years now. When I was first asked to contribute to the


magazine, I had no idea then that it would become a regular feature and that I would have so much to update you. We continually introduce more catering options in our smaller and more remote Youth Hostels where we previously had no offerings. Tis season sees almost all of our Youth


Hostels now providing a breakfast option to you, our guests, so that you are free to enjoy your holiday and not worry about purchasing food to make a breakfast or a packed lunch. In several sites, where we are unable to


offer evening meals, we offer our ‘self- catering-style’ meals, where we can provide you with a ready main meal to heat yourself – and normally a dessert, which is ice-cream. It’s really rewarding to know that, although

our self-catering kitchens are still there for you we can now offer you a wide range of catered options as well. We have listened to the feedback you have given us and we have really tried to ensure that we are matching your expectations and delivering a professional service to you. We are still moving on with licensing our


Youth Hostels, as a cold beer or a glass of wine always goes down well with a meal after a long day. Currently, we are licensed at Edinburgh Central, Glasgow, Stirling, Rowardennan, Crianlarich, Ratagan, Cairngorm Lodge and Glen Nevis – and we are looking to get another six licensed this year.


Tis season, we have added more


groceries to our reception shop stock to give you the option of self-catering without carrying the groceries on your backs. Most of our Youth Hostels also have fresh coffee and cakes available at check-in.
