This little B&B, with only two guest rooms is a real find. Situated on the small island of Grimsay, it is ideal when visiting North Uist. Home made cake, as well as tea, coffee, biscuits, sweets and a little jug of "proper" milk (ie not UHT portions) were in our room when we arrived and replaced daily. Breakfast was served... More

Definitely the best B&B we stayed at during our Outer Hebrides trip. Anne really made you feel at home with a warm welcome and a friendly chat. Her homemade cake was excellent. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Good sized ensuite with a bath. Everything very clean and well decorated. Guest area was actually Anne's sitting room but you... More

We stayed at Anne's bed and breakfast for two nights and it was great. Really we'll appointed and welcoming. The rooms were just right. The porridge was the best I had in the Outer Hebrides. The location was perfect with great views over Grimsay.

My stay at Shivinish B&B was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to the Outer Hebrides. I received a very warm welcome from Anne, who offered me coffee and cake as soon as I arrived, despite me being early. The B&B itself is set amongst some amazing scenery in Grimsay, with fantastic views from the living room and... More

Anne made us very comfortable in her clean home in a wonderful spot on Grimsay. Breakfast was the best of our trip with quality produce, homemade jams, marmalade and even tablet! Can definitely recommend a boat trip with Nick out of Killan Harbour. Saw a sea eagle, golden eagle, dolphin and caught a fish - great day out : )

A very warm welcome from a very friendly hostess, (there was even cake waiting for us), a beautiful room with a magnificent view and great breakfasts - what more could you want? Shivinish is fantastic and Anne very kind; she even offered to dry our very wet walking clothes. I can't recommended Shivinish highly enough.

What can we say but it was fabulous. It was like staying with your granny. She tended to pur every need, her breakfasts have got to be the best we have eaten they set you up for the day and you won't be hungry for quite a while. The room was immaculate towels fluffy, bed was comfy, and she makes... More

I stayed with Anne for three weeks while on a work term. I now consider her part of my Scotland family while I've been an exchange student. From the minute you meet her, Anne wants to make sure you are well looked after, whether its in the B&B or finding the perfect spot to go for a walk or drive.... More

Anne really looked after us during our stay at Shivinish B&B. The room was lovely, absolutely immaculate, and we also had use of the lounge, with plenty of reading material and great views. Nothing was too much trouble - she really went out of her way to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. Breakfast was top notch!
