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....

We have visited the Isle of Barra on previous occasions and returned again but this time to a different hotel. They were welcoming, the room and bed were comfortable and the food was good. We had considered eating out, but as the food was excellent we eat in all three nights. Look forward to visiting again in the future. I... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but had one dinner. Maybe it was because it was early in the season, but the menu was not too exciting. Everything was served with not much tasting chips, my dish had a sidesalad which was ok but not more. All in all a very bland experience, and I probably wouldn't recommend others to... 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. :-)
