“Our castle!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We recently discovered our MacNeil Scottish history and were in awe to visit the castle of our ancestors. It is very well preserved.

“Home of the McNeills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

As the male members of our party are McNeills, this was a big hit with them. The castle is much bigger than it looks from the bay and everyone there was very helpful

“magical castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

A nice place to visit. Reasonable price which includes the short boat ride. There is a shop in the castle. This castle is wonderfully restored. Don't miss a visit if you are on Barra.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

The castle on a rock in the middle of the bay has an interesting history and is worth a visit. the boat runs every half hour and an hour is about enough to wander around.
