We couldn't fault our stay at the Craigard Hotel. We have travelled extensively in our time and the location of this hotel, the hospitality and the friendliness of the staff and locals was great! This is a family run establishment where locals and tourists alike frequent and it has a great atmosphere! The rooms are spotlessly clean and fresh. Room... More

We did not stay in the hotel but visited the bar every evening for drinks. Nice bar with friendly staff and a great view over the bay. The Champagne reception for the wedding we were attending was held here and it was excellent with lovely canapés. Well worth a visit if you are ever in Barra.

The owner of this establishment can never again say that no has ever complained about anything before. We insisted on a meeting before paying our bill of £130 per couple per room per night, plus dinner for four. He refused to accept there were any problems. Dinner was a shambles, we booked a table witnessed a young pleasant waiter placed... More

Arriving late on the ferry from Oban to the Isle of Barra, provides the traveler with a charming bar, a compact yet comfortable bedroom and a killer breakfast. All these carbs made the Craigard Hotel a good value, well located and just a fun place to visit.

We got married at kisimul castle, then on to the Craigard Hotel for the reception. Mary & the staff were brilliant, very welcoming and helpful. They certainly helped make our day special. Guests are still talking about the best wedding venue to date. Food was brilliant & views across the bay from the hotel were stunning. Our function room opened... More

We were camping in Barra during the World Cup semi-final. The only places it was being shown was in the public bars and children weren't allowed in. When we asked at the Craignard Hotel, the owner was incredibly helpful and offered the use of the television in the residents lounge for the children to watch the match, even though we... More

My husband and I stayed in the Craigard for 3 nights mid June as we were visiting Barra for a friends wedding. The reception we received on arrival was friendly and the owner kindly carried our cases up to room 4. This room was very small but very clean and had a cracking view across the bay to the castle....
