John and Jill were very welcoming and helpful on arrival and throughout our stay. The double room we stayed in was quite spacious with ample storage facilities. Bathroom lovely and clean with excellent shower and cubicle. Good breakfast and care was taken with our preferences for time and exactly what we wanted. I would recommend. My husband and I stayed...

We had spent a week wild camping and climbing on the uninhabited islands of Pabbay and Mingulay and were looking for our last night in comfort, so this b&b fitted the bill perfectly. The couple who run this establishment welcomed us as old friends and were most anxious to meet our needs. The large double room with a single bed... More

Fabulous place to stay. Just spent 5 nights here - hoping to return to Barra - wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Would recommend to anyone. Didn't meet Jon, as he was away for a few days - Jill is an absolutely delightful lady!

My partner and I stayed here at the start of our cycling holiday. It is very convenient being literally yards from the ferry port. The hosts were very welcoming and the room was comfortable. There were your usual amenities of tea and coffee and everything was nice and clean. Breakfast in the morning was very good, would definitely recommend this... More

Having arrived in Castlebay on the ferry from Oban at 10:30pm - 2 hours late due to the 'lively' sea conditions on 1 June! - reaching Endeavour was just perfect. The room was spotless with a lovely view of the bay. Jill and Jon are great hosts and make it feel just like home. Barra itself is a lovely island... More

Jill & Jon are great hosts..excellent facilities and near the ferry terminal for the Oban boat. I've booked for Sept 2015, highly recommend this B & B. I arrived quite late & Jill was waiting with a smile, the room is modern and up to date plumbing make this a great accommodation option...

I don't often leave reviews, but I feel that I must when it comes to the Endeavour. John and Jill are the perfect hosts. Such a warm welcome with excellent rooms and serving a superb breakfast, there is nothing not to like about this fabulous B&B. The location is perfect for exploring the wonderful Island of Barra, and the peace... More

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...
