“Fantastic Hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We keep going back. That says it all.
There are so many places that I will not be returning to but Anglers Retreat is not one of them.
Hosts Billy and Marion Felton have built up a great reputation of good food, good company and good advice on anything from fishing to walking to local flora and fauna.
Thanks again for a great week.

We stayed at the Anglers Retreat for one week in August. My husband was keen to try fishing again, something he a had not done since his teenage years. Thanks to Billy's invaluable advice and patience the whole experience was a great success. Marion provided fantastic food and we were treated as old friends the whole time we were there. I had plenty of time to explore the beautiful countryside of South Uist and Benbecula which was a treat. It will be a sad day when Billy and Marion decide to move on.

Stayed for one unplanned night and had a memorable time. Billy and Marion pour their hearts into looking after guests and trying their best to ensure they enjoy the islands. They both went completely out of their way to help with fishing and access to some areas I had visited 30 years ago.
I'll be back, thanks again.

Just returned from my second week long fishing trip to south uist which was made even move pleasurable by my stay at the Anglers Retreat. Billy and Marion Felton really know how to look after their guests both in terms of comfort and fishing expertise. They could not have been more helpful and the whole atmosphere of the place and fellow guests made for a wonderful stay. Marion needs special thanks for her catering; the food was plentiful and delicious and she worked long and hard to meet our needs. even when we staying out till dark and returned at 2130 dinner was piping hot on the table waiting for us. Add to this the ridiculously low cost and you have THE place to stay in South Uist, particularly if you are fishing. Gary Bateman

I stay here for a weekend in early June 2013 whilst working on the Isle of Lewis. Marion and Billy were the model hosts, it was like a home away from home. Billy has exceptional knowledge of the islands and is especially helpful to fisherman and birdwatchers. I fall into the latter category, and he knew where to send me to find what I was after - mainly corncrakes. I am hoping to go back next year.
