A wonderful guest house, where one is treated as a guest and almost part of the family. Extremely comfortable and spacious accommodation with a most hospitable host, who is also a very good artist. The house is beautifully designed with floor to ceiling windows with great views wherever you look. The location is excellent within walking distance of a magnificent,... More

Me and Dad stayed with Jac at Bagh Alluin for a night on our way cycling up the Outer Hebs. Couldnt have picked a better spot! The island of Baleshare is wonderful, with the great long white beaches so typical of Uist only five minutes walk or cycle from the house. We spent the summer solstice beach-combing and enjoying the... More

We had a great time on our stay with Jac, who treats you more like a friend than a paying guest, a very pleasant man, with a lot of local knowledge. It is a lovely bright house, with plenty of space, we had an upstairs room with 3 windows,each window pointed to a different compass point, it was fantastic panoramic... More

I travelled on my own and spent 8 days at Bagh Alluin. Jac was the perfect host, making it easy for me to feel welcome. His house is incredible with lots of light and space and so are his guestrooms, very spacious and pure without any clutter. I could easily have spent the whole 8 days, sitting in that comfy... More

My wife and I stayed with JAC at Bagh Alluin recently and it really was like visiting an old friend! In fact we came away after a couple of days convinced that we had known JAC for years and in the certain knowledge that we would see him again before too long! Right from the start of our visit, he... More

We are about to finish our cycling trip from Barra to Stornoway, catching the ferry to Ullapool tomorrow morning. We have had a wonderful time, the weather has been brilliant and the highlight of our trip has been our stay at Jac's place. Everybody visiting North Uist MUST simply stay with Jac. He is a fantastic host, you feel as... More

On my fourth visit to stay at Bagh Alluin, Baile Sear, and as always I was welcomed by Jac to his beautifully-designed house filled with his inspiring works of art (Jac is an artist). Wherever you come from, and whatever your background, you will be given a warm welcome by Jac. Bagh Alluin is a great place to relax and... More

The previous review points to some features about this B&B that some visitors may not appreciate. Our recent experience here would suggest that anyone that leaves Jac without having had a wonderful time would be difficult to please indeed. One of the joys of this sort of accommodation is diversity and Jac has chosen to run his business with some... More

In visiting Bagh Alluin visitors need to be aware of what is actually on offer here. As most reviewers say Jac is a hospitable and friendly host and much of what he does is fine. A particularly striking feature are his paintings which hang in the bedroom. But there are features of this B & B which are unusual and... More
