Overview

Ruth Bradley, manager at Acheninver Hostel, was awarded LEADER funding to develop her business plan after being awarded tenancy of the hostel. The project will build three bespoke, insulated, double glazed, heated and en-suite accommodation pods on the surrounding grounds. The hostel employs local staff and it is hoped that with increased turnover and extending the season they can move from part-time seasonal contracts to full-time year-round employment.
