This is the perfect bnb. Location is a two minute walk from the hotel bar and restaurant and five minutes at the most from the centre of Castlebay and other eating places. The Doreen and Donald are brilliant and very welcoming with wonderful home baking. All the bread here is homemade!!!. The breakfasts are fantastic and cooked to perfection with a huge pot of tea or coffee and lovely views from the spacious dining/sitting room. The rooms are a home from home, spotless and very comfortable. Great local knowledge and advice for your days out. Many thanks for a great stay but we do think you should get Donald a set of pipes to use in his spare time!!! A visit to Kisimul Castle in the bay and Vartersay beaches (short ride by bus) is a must.
