the views from the bar, restaurant and some of the rooms are of the beautiful Castlebay and castle in the middle of the bay. We stayed in a really lovely room, room 7, and had a view directly over the bay and to Vatersay beyond. The food we had in the restaurant for dinner was excellent as was the beakfast.... More

We went in here for a wee cheeky voddy or two and it was lovely. Great location, right by the ferry port. Wasn't very busy but the staff were nice and the bar was comfy. Would go back here again, maybe stay next time. :-)

A truly wonderful place to stay. Julian and Della are magnificent hosts and went above and beyond to make sure our stay on Barra was enjoyable. From when we checked in and Julian greeted us upon our arrival to checking out, they couldn't have done anything more to make our stay pleasant. In addition to the excellent service, this Gorgeous...

As we were staying in Castlebay for three nights, my wife and I thought that rather than simply go to the Castlebay Bar every night we should give the bar at the Craigard Hotel a try. Bad move! Perhaps it was because we were neither locals nor hotel guests; or perhaps we just got the owners on a bad day... More

Booked a twin room for one night. For £120 and you couldn't swing the proverbial cat in the room. The washbasin was actually in the room rather than bathroom, but it was so tiny that it was embarrassing to use the facilities knowing that your friend was on the other side of a very thin door. The food is the... More

Very friendly welcome which continued throughout the stay and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. Rooms were very clean with decent facilities. Luckily we got a a room with the amazing view out to the bay and the castle. Food was nice and not too pricey considering the remote location of Barra although a wee bit more local choice... More

1st night of my cycle trip through the Hebrides, my pre-booked B&B let me down and I turned up here looking for a room at 12.30 am, thoroughly soaked and miserable. "yes, we have a room but it's a twin and you'll have to pay double rate of £110.00". The room was cramped to say the least with barely enough... More

We were made to feel extremely welcome, from owners and staff alike. Our room had a beautiful view overlooking the bay and castle. The room was basic but very clean and tidy. We thought the menu may have taken more advantage to local produce. Thank you so much for an enjoyable stay, would definitely recommend. We hope to return one... More

Excellent service, excellent food - definitely using local produce (unlike some others in the area). The views are simply breathtaking, whatever the weather happens to throw at you! Some people clearly expect Ritz style accommodation regardless of how remote the location may be - they need to get real - you're there for the views and the atmosphere, not a... More

We booked Craigard as a birthday surprise! The hotel was clean, comfortable and our room was fabulous overlooking the bay and castle! Staff excellent, pleasant, chatty and attentive! Food was excellent and couldn't eat anymore for breakfast and spoilt for choice! We couldn't fault any aspect of our stay and will definately return!
