A fabulous old inn with comfortable refurbished rooms. A three mile drive from the Eriskay ferry terminal. Splendid isolation. Lovely bar and restaurant with an excellent breakfast. Pleasant efficient staff. Great walks along the coast right outside. Our room had a sea view.

My wife and I stayed for here for 3 nights and couldn't fault the warm welcome, good food at breakfast as well as at dinner in the evening (good choices and all prepared fresh). The staff, without exception, could not do enough to make sure our visit was as enjoyable as possible, thanks Fiona, Joe. Our room was very comfortable... More

Stayed for 2 nights - 2 very different days weather wise but the welcome and service were consistently first class. Food was very good and the breakfast was excellent. Room was very comfortable and provided an excellent base for our stay.

We were staying on eriskay within sight of this hotel / restaurant and had two memorable meals. The scallops, gathered from the bay just outside the inn were huge and stunning. Definitely worth the trip to the end of the island. On the second occasion we fought off the midges as the sun went down and saw an otter playing... More

Had dinner here twice during a recent visit to South Uist. The food and service were excellent. If the seafood chowder is on the menu, don't think twice - it is superb. The staff were superb, we were stuck one evening without a taxi and one of the guys kindly drove us back to the B&B. Definitely worth a visit... More
