I spent two nights staying in the hostel at The Barn - there are also campsites, and private rooms, plus they were currently in the midst of creating a bed and breakfast part! I was in a two bed room that had extremely comfortable bunk beds that did not squeak - that in itself is quite impressive! The bathroom is... More

Very friendly and helpful people, beautiful site on a wonderful island. The facilities include a well-equipped campers' kitchen with a cooker, fridge, table, chairs, pans, crockery and cutlery; there is also access to an iron, ironing board, hair drier. The prices are very (too) cheap. One of the country's best shops for wet and fried fish is just round the... More

Lovely warm welcome from Michael and Teenie. Our motorhome was a little heavy for the regular grass camping area, so they gave us the best of alternatives - at the front of The Barn overlooking Pierowall Bay and watched by inquisitive seals. It wasn't necessary to step outside to watch the wonderful sunsets over the bay, but we did! Westray... More

We stayed two nights at this small well equiped hostel,all very clean. A lovely spacious lounge overlooking the beautiful bay, where we could sit in the evening watching the seals in the water, much more interesting than the telly. The hosts very friendly and welcoming and knowledgable about the island. Stay in one night and cook some fish from the... More

We spent 2 nights here in our demountable campervan in a sunny but freezing cold May. The campsite at the Barn is a super little site - it is nice & level, with grassy pitches and electric hookup. We received a really warm welcome from the owner- it's not often you are actually thanked for visiting their island! We will... More

Nice hosts! Small but nice rooms, same goes for the kitchen. Very nice lofty lounge with books, tv and stereo. Easy distance to the town centre. A bus service runs to the ferry but has to be ordered in advance.

I have spent many happy summers on the island of Westray, visiting my grandparents but after they sadly died I needed to find accommodation for a group of 9 of us to attend my grandparents funeral. From initial... More

The Barn is a lovely, cosy and welcoming place at the south end of Pierowall, the main village on Westray. Despite a slight mix-up with the booking (which was probably partly my fault chopping-and-changing) we were accommodated no problem and given a very warm welcome, which you’ll find it very typical of everyone you’ll meet on Westray. The room we... More
