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

We came across Heron Point by sheer chance and are we glad we did. Even during the booking process, Andy was extremely helpful and sourced and arranged bike hire, located contacts for boat hire etc. Clearly an individual who has a strong customer focus. We stayed four nights in mid-June 2015 and wished we could have stayed longer. Despite arriving... More

Andy & Jan were most welcoming allowing us to treat their house as honored guests. They were full of information about where to go, what to see and with whom to book. Breakfasts delicious and large slice of homemade cake for lunch, although not needed after the breakfast, much enjoyed. Also glass of free wine after an alcoholic free supper... More

Many B & b's want you in and out with minimal fuss whereas with Andy and Jan they could not do more to ensure a great stay! Where else would they greet you with tea and lemon drizzle cake,offer a glass of free wine and fetch you from the local inn when the car battery went flat! Superb standard

Andy and Jan run a first-class B&B! The accommodations are comfortable, the service is outstanding and the breakfast was the best of our entire trip. We were treated better than family. Andy and Jan went above & beyond to make our stay fantastic. We will definitely be back! If you're going to South Uist, this has to be part of... More

Andy and Jan were the perfect hosts and gave us a wonderfully warm welcome in this fabulous house. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they went that extra mile to ensure we had everything we could possibly want or need. Excellent breakfast - better than most 5* Hotels. All in all - outstanding! Thank you both so much. We... More

I am no stranger to the Isle of South Uist and I have had Family members settle there over the years. My latest trip, this weekend wasn't intended as a pleasurable one - myself, husband and brother were back on the Island to empty our Grandparents cottage since their passing.A task we were dreading in all honesty. We were booked... More

I stayed there for 2 nights and can not express my thanks to Andy and his team for my fantastic stay! You will be made to feel very welcome and comfortable, the accommodation is great, stunning breakfasts are served and the place is amazingly clean! A real credit to all the staff! But my lasting memory of my stay will... More

Booking restaurant meals arranging wildlife walks and boat trips to providing delicious lemon drizzle cake for elevenses!!

Heron Point is a very comfortable, modern house well located in South Uist. The owners Jan and Andy made us very welcome indeed and the level of attention to detail and service was superb, nothing was too much trouble! This was very useful as the very nasty weather conditions made cycling extremely difficult and the fall back plan devised with... More
