The Gatliff Trust

A huge thank-you to The Gatliff Trust who have made a donation to our 2020 Holiday.

The Gatliff Trust was established by Herbert Gatliff in 1961. It is dedicated to encouraging young people, especially those of limited means to experience, explore and appreciate the British countryside.  This is a wide brief from which it picks out specific themes: small hostels, especially in wilderness areas such as the Outer Hebrides, the adventure of hostelling and personal exploration of the countryside.  Their sister trust is the Gatliff Hebridean Hostels Trust.
