This place is wonderful and has a lot of character. Nice upstairs rooms, both with private bathrooms and views of the bay. Jon and Jill are kind people who will respect your privacy if that's what you want (they don't go in your room during the day unless you ask them to), but are also friendly and welcoming. They did...

As a mature couple on a cycling honeymoon to Scotland, we stayed in 15 different places in August 2104. This was our second stop and we received a very warm welcome from John. There was secure parking for our bikes. There is a wonderful view of the bay from the bedroom (and dining room) window. Our room was smallish but... More

My daughter and I arrived on bikes and were made very welcome by John and Gill. The room was very comfortable. The shower was great. Breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay again on another visit to Barra.

Spent one night in Endeavour. As B&Bs go, this is amongst the best. The building is of the traditional cottage type and seems to offer accommodation in two rooms - a twin/family room and a double. I stayed in the double. It was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable and gave me a good nights sleep. The window faced out... More

Spent two nights here in a double room. Bed was very comfortable, we got a great sleep. Bathroom was spotless, shower power and heat was fantastic. There was no telly in the room but there is one in the guest lounge, you don't need a telly but we do like to relax at the end of the day watching some... More

I am on my way back home after my third stay at the Endeavour B&B in two years. It's safe to say that I would not now stay anywhere else on Barra. As all the other reviews have noted, John and Jill are excellent hosts as I can endorse all the other comments about the generosity of the breakfasts and... More

If a warm welcome, free wifi and fluffy towels matter as much to you as they do to me, you'll love it here! I can only endorse what everyone else has said about how welcoming Jill and John are and how well they look after their guests, and about how terrific the location of Endeavour is. I heartily recommend this... More

It was my first stay on barra and it was a nice stay at Endeavour. Jon and Jill are wonderful hosts. We had a wonderful view to Kismuil Castle. The breakfast was good, so we enjoyed our stay. Think we probably coming back.
