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...

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...

Welcoming peat fire in this 1745 inn, at lunchtime, in the Hebrides, on a Thursday in November. A very rare find. Lovely welcome and a steaming bowl of pea soup and a scone by the stove on a freezing winter day. Outlook over the breathtaking Sound of Barra.
