Andy, the proprietor, was welcoming and caretaking way above the call of duty - when we came in soaked from a hike, he took our wet clothes/boots to dry. When our tour group turned up with almost NO notice to play music (only 3 of us stayed with him), he not only welcomed all 10 people, he put out snacks... More

Heron point is beautifully situated with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside. Andy and Jan could not do enough for us and we're very welcoming and a fount of knowledge and advice. The breakfast of local hot smoked salmon and eggs, beautifully presented was the best of our trip and we visited 9 islands! The lemon cake and offer of... More

The owners picked us up from the ferry terminal, had wine waiting for us on arrival, home-baked lemon cake the following day and maps, binoculars etc. waiting for us to use. Couldn't do enough for us. And loved their 3 cats and 3 dogs! Thanks for everything

Lovely setting to the edge of the village. Very comfortable room and living room with a fantastic breakfast - Andy’s famous South Uist breakfast of hot smoked Loch Duart Salmon with either poached or scrambled eggs - the best in the Outer Hebrides! Nearby is Askernish Golf Club and reasonable eating places for the evening. Just ask Andy, and you... More

Despite suffering from chest infections Andy and Jan welcomed us into their immaculate home and provided us with great hospitality. Our room was spotless, bed very comfy and our breakfast was excellent. There was a guest lounge where we were encouraged to sit and relax and mine hosts were a wealth of local info. Would definitely recommend this gem!

We stayed at Heron Point whilst attending a family wedding in nearby Eriskay. Our family took all 4 rooms (and therefore over the house) and the hosts Andy and Jan couldn't have been more hospitable. From booking Andy was happy to help with everything from travel tips, organising a hairdresser to visit Heron Point (for the ladies), car hire etc.... More

Andy at Heron Point was a great host, he made us feel very welcome. Was a font of knowledge with regards to the local area and a great help with pointing us in the right direction with what to see and do in the short time we were there. Fab smoked salmon breakfast and a slice of home made cake... More

We stayed one night at Heron Point and wished it could have been longer, Andy and Jan couldn't have been more hospitable, made us feel so much at home. The room was lovely, Andy called a local hotel and made a reservation for us for dinner and it was lovely, came back to Heron Point and was offered wine and... More

I had picked Heron Point primarily because it was close to the ferry for our early morning departure but I was really glad I chose it. We experienced a very warm welcome on arrival, even though I had told Andy I was going to arrive a few hours later than I actually did! The room was well decorated and a... More
