What an amazing place! Baile-na-Ciille Is perfect! We stayed in a large double room with an amazing en-suite! Views to die for. Richard is the perfect host, and cooked a great meal on our first night and recommended a good local venue when he did not cook on the Saturday night. Great walks across the beach at low tide and...

A lovely old place in a beautiful setting. The beach and surrounding landscape is unbelievably beautiful. When the tide is out, Richard will show you how to read the tide clock so you don't get trapped on the other side, the walk on the sand and hills is wonderful. Breakfast is fun as the food is prepared and residents chat... More

Friends had recommended Baile-na-Cille primarily for its location on the edge of a breathtaking stretch of endless sandy beach. But this didn't really prepare us for the full B-n-C experience. We had the glittering expanse of sand, the endlessly changing prospect, the comfortable rooms and the excellent breakfasts. But we also had the charm and humour of Richard Gollin, the... More

We booked a room at Baile-na-Cille on the off-chance as we were touring the Outer Hebrides. OK it's pricey and the room we stayed in was basic (no ensuite - but huge!) but those are trifles when you consider the whole experience. Firstly there are the views, simply stunning. I doubt if any hotel in Britain is in a more... More

We had a wonderful stay with our two daughters - the food was excellent, and we were looked after wonderfully by our host, who even found time to play table football with Dad and the teenagers. And needless to say, the location is very special - could spend the whole day just watching the water creeping in and out over... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July on a recommendation whilst staying in a similar place in Shetland. I was not disappointed. The owner Richard as well as being a fantastic cook, is an excellent host who obviously likes meeting people. The ever changing range of guests in the dining room at breakfast and dinner gave way...

Wonderful wiew on the seaside. The service is poor. Our room was small and poor on forniture; no shower system in the bathroom, poor wifi,. The hotel is the only chance you have to dinner for a lot of miles around. Dinner (fixed menu) is at 7 pm , if the staff is on duty . Otherwise you have to... More

I am so glad that we discovered this away-from-it-all spot and the welcome offered by our host Richard. Don't come here if you need 5-star hotel facilities, luxury furnishings, state of the art plumbing etc. Do come here if you appreciate beautiful surroundings, a convivial house party atmosphere, and a touch of eccentricity. Not the cheapest B&B we stayed in... More

If you have a chance, stay here. The setting is wild and the hotel is unlike any place else. The dinner is costly, but definitely do it at least once. The food is delicious, the conversations are fun and the host is delightful. The only drawback for us is that the carriage house suite had only a bath tub, no... More

This is the question we've asked each other over and over. How can I accurately describe this experience? If you've ever seen a movie with guests enjoying a house party you have an idea. We booked dinner due to the location - off the beaten path - but would do it again if there were dozens of places within sight.... More
