“Brilliant new B&B - Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Barra born Lorna has designed her new home with flair and fitted quality furnishings with comfort in mind. Large en-suite bedrooms, very comfortable beds and a choice of breakfasts.

Amazing views over the cockle beach and crystal clear waters to Eriskay and outlying islands. The beach is less than 50 yds from the front door across flower laden grass with oyster catchers and various other sea birds searching for food . We even saw a curlew.

Lorna was extremely helpful with information about the round the Island buses (100 yds), places to eat, booking taxis and the 'must do' Mingulay boat trip etc.

A wonderful Hebridean Island experience including landing on the nearby shell beach at Barra Airport in a twin engine Otter plane from Glasgow - the only scheduled beach landing air service in the world! Very highly recommended. Many , many thanks Lorna.

Room Tip: Front twin bedroom has best sea views to outer islands. The most comfortable beds we have slept in...

Just spent 5 days here with friends as we traveled up to Barra for the festival. We arrived on the Wed to a lovely warm cottage all supplied with tea coffee milk etc. We actually rented the Chalet, which is about 100 yards down from the B&B as we had friends with us who had never been before, they loved it so much they want to move there!...lol All I can say is it was hard for us to return home, the chalet is warm and cosy and looks onto the beach, you can see the plane coming in each day and Lorna who owns and runs the Chalet and B&B is amazing, she cannot do enough for you and was there whenever we needed anything. Everything is spotlessly clean and the beds are so comfortable you wont want to get up! The views are to die for and only takes a few minutes and you are on the beach each day. I would highly recommend this wonderful place, and cant wait to go back next year! Thank you for a fabulously relaxing holiday :-)

Room Tip: All rooms are great and no noise apart from the daily flight (small 14 seater plane) which lands on...

Just spent 2 night here in July 2012, fantastic location with beautiful sea views from the back bedroom we were in (lives up to its name!) Only a few minutes' drive from the airport. Lovely room (twin) with great shower and all very clean, bright and modern. Lorna is lovely and makes a great breakfast! Would recommend.

Room Tip: Twin room at the back overlooks the sea
