If you are going to South Uist, this is the place you must stay in. Andy provides a very warm welcome, beautiful home, spotlessly clean and delicious breakfast including fruit. Will be back and would highly recommend it to anyone who goes to the Hebrides.

We stayed at Heron Point for two nights recently. Andy and Jan made us feel very welcome, shared their knowledge about South Uist and were perfect hosts. The room was decorated to a high standard, the views were amazing and the selection at breakfast was fresh and cooked to order which was delicious. What a lovely B&B, I would stay... More

A very comfortable stay in an immaculate property.. Andy provided us with excellent breakfasts (the delicious salmon and scrambled eggs served with particular style), plenty of local information and he took us on a short walk from the bottom of his garden to the loch where we watched seals play. Thank you, Andy and Jan, for helping to make our... More

A lovely place to stay. Hospitable very helpful host. A very good high standard of Breakfast. Some nice touches by the host. It was the most expensive B&B we stayed in but maybe worth the extra. We didn't like sitting at Breakfast with strangers but I guess space is limited in the dining area.

We stayed at Heron Point for 3 days/nights. And what a great stay it was. Andy and Jan are excellent hosts, very warm and welcoming. The accommodation itself is great, fantastic location on South Uist, with lots of opportunities nearby to get a great view of the island. Eriskay and the ferry to Barra are also nearby. As many visitors... More

Where to start. There were so many excellent parts of our short stay with Andy & Jan at Heron Point. We arrived on the late ferry and were graciously greeted with offers of a glass of wine and all details required to get settled into our cozy rooms (which included chocolate on the pillows). The next morning we enjoyed what... More

Heron Point is a spacious modern house, one of many - old, new, ruined - dotted about in the rocky, marshy, tussocky hinterland of Lochboisdale village/ferryport. Some quiet, white-shell beaches go some way to redeeming South Uist's bleak prospects, when compared, for example, with Harris, Skye or Islay. Think Craggy Island and you'll get the idea. The guest house itself... More

On tour by Ferry through the Hebrides we happened on this place and booked by phone and EMail. Straight away we knew we had found a great host as even by telephone several suggestions and offers of help were made. Even a suggestion to meet us off the ferry if needed. The rooms were lovely and the use of lounge... More

Rooms excellent and I was made very welcome with lots of advice for my walks. As everyone comments the breakfast content, quality and presentation was exceptional. I was made to feel at home which was especially important travelling on my own. Well done Andy.

What a fantastic place to stay. Visited end of May from North Wales. The hosts bent over backwards to make your stay a pleasurable one, nothing was too much trouble, even getting up at 5.30am to cook breakfast as we were catching the early ferry. The delicious breakfast was cooked to the highest standard. Thank you very much, we will... More
