Once a year I leave the humdrum and stay with Billy and Marion for a week fly fishing. As always, this year was excellent. As usual, excellent food and service. As usual, excellent fishing advice and support. As usual, I didn't want to go home. As usual, my 6wt 10ft rod let me down with big fish! (a leviathan pulled... More

Goes without saying that I was well looked after and had a great time. The help Billy gave me with my feeble attempts at fishing went well beyond the call of duty. I know this may be Billy and Marion last season, I along with all their loyal fans would like to wish them well and thank them for all... More

Billy and Marion make everyone very welcome. I couldn't ask for more with Marion going all out to cook you a wide selection of good food and Billy going out of his way to make the fishing as successful as possible. Together they make a great pair and can't do enough for you.

This is a difficult B&B to review. It's such a curious mixture of good and bad. The house itself is not modern or posh. Some will call it quaint, others old-fashioned. I'll go for quaint. Marion and Billy are good hosts, I felt very welcome staying with them, even though I have no interest in fishing. I took dinner there... More

This was our 5th trip here, and as always we weren't disappointed with our stay. We got our usual warm welcome from Marion and Billy. We had our wee grandson with us so it was a different holiday this time, but we still enjoyed it. As usual we were very well fed and looked after it's so relaxing being there.... More

Just been to the Angler's Retreat on a cycling holiday with teenagers. We instantly felt at home and the kids didn't want to leave. We had lots of space and every comfort thought of. Marion cooked us a delicious 3 course supper with lots of local produce, and Billy then told us so much about the islands. We felt very... More

Once again my wife and I continued our habit of making the long road and sea journey from Cornwall to Eochar. Sure enough, Billy and Marion were splendid hosts. Good food, comfortable accommodation and expert fishing advice that helped catch some wild brown trout. Recommended for both fishermen and their wives.

Stayed three nights on a tour of the Outer Hebrides. Very well looked after by Billy and Marion. Most enjoyable company with hosts and other guests who were enthusiastic fisherman. Would certainly return if I was up that way again. Facilitated with an early start to visit the Monach Isles.

Just been back for my fourth visit to the angler's retreat and as usual it was a fantastic holiday. You only have to look at the reviews for here to realise it is a bit different. Billy & Marion make it their business to ensure you feel welcome with Billy sorting out your fishing or bird watching and Marion taking... More

My first trip to South Uist and to the Anglers Retreat where the hospitality was first class, Marions cooking was first rate and Billys fishing knowledge and morning briefings made the trip very enjoyable and reasonably productive. Thanks again for a fantastic week.
