Wanted to visit the Isle of Barra and saw that Northbay House had excellent reviews everywhere, so I booked it. The reviewers were right. Graham and Mary are truly wonderful and dedicated hosts! Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went out of their way to make sure that I felt right at home. Make sure to ask them what life is like living on a remote island, because they have interesting insights for you.The house is beautiful, the lounge modern yet cozy.
Breakfast is excellent and one gets to chat with the other guests to talk about Barra and Scotland.
The bed was easily one of the best ones I have slept in, an absolute dream!
I would like to go back to Barra and when I do, I will book the Northbay House again, for sure.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Northbay House is a sympathetic conversion of the former Victorian school at Morgan. Situated at the head of Loch na h-Obbe, this is a quiet and sheltered location from which to explore the beautiful Island of Barra. Visitors are welcome to sit in the mature gardens, overlooking the loch or when the weather is wild, relax in the cosy lounge with a selection of books and magazines. The ground floor en-suite twin room is suitable for wheelchair users, with a large, wet-room style bathroom and level access to the breakfast room, but not the upstairs lounge. The first floor, en-suite double room retains the original window design, at floor level. All rooms have generous hospitality trays and there is a wide choice for breakfast. Home baking is offered either in the afternoon or at suppertime. Free WiFi is available 24 hours although the signal varies in bad weather! The local bus passes the end of the drive and we are within 10 minutes walk of the Heathbank Hotel which serves excellent meals. ... more less
