If you are looking for first rate accommodation, really good food and a stunning view of the sea clear across to North America then you will find it hard to better this place.
Right on the sea’s edge and well deserving of its four stars the Polochar Inn is a real find. The rooms are well laid out and the furnishings well-coordinated, the lounge is comfortable, the bar welcoming, the dining room spacious and the owners extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating.
We stayed just after the chef had returned to the mainland for the winter so the evening meal was cooked by ‘a lady from Eriskay’. I must say that if she is just the winter cook the summer chef must be outstanding because this lady can really cook. They had obtained some local Turbot which she simply pan fried Meunière and it was perfect and plentiful. The cream and chive sauce was a bit bland and the fish might have been better with a standard Meunière sauce of butter, lemon and capers but that’s just me being picky, the dish was still very good indeed. The veg was perfectly cooked and there was more than enough. The Memsahib had beef cannelloni which she declared as excellent so all in all a good meal was had by all. Even by mainland standards it was very reasonably priced, which was a bonus.
Close your eyes and listen to the tranquillity, they even have their very own Celtic Standing Stone outside the front door, an almost white sandy beach and the sea, oh the sea!
I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay at the very bottom of South Uist.
