“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I loved this place. It is very clean and really comfortable. The owners strike a brilliant balance between giving you your own space and being very helpful. They have thought of everything including providing maps marked up with tea shops, loos etc. There is possibly the best selection of books available that I have come across in any accommodation. The breakfasts were great and you feel really at home. I was sorry to leave and would visit again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Front bedroom has a view of the sea.

I cannot praise them enough very welcoming helpful and knowledgeable hosts. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful . Especially loved the grapefruit or fruit as an option. The house is really clean and comfortable . We would certainly go back there the next time we are in the Hebrides !

We stayed one night at Ardnastruban in horrendous weather and it was certainly a shelter from the storm. Margaret and Stewart were excellent hosts, the room was comfortable, the facilities great and breakfast was excellent. The lounge available to us was also comfortable with lots of books and maps to look over. Although the location is rural it was only a 5 minute drive back across the causeway for dinner at a nice little restaurant for a simple meal at a good price. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend them, especially if you are in to fishing as Stewart is a local fishing guide.

For the first time in fourteen days during our holidays on the Western Isles the weather was a bit disappointing. This B&B certainly wasn't ! Outside it was cold and wet, but thanks to Margaret and Stewart we felt warm and welcome inside the house. What perfect hosts they are! Sincerely interested in their guests, always ready to help: a comfortable stay in Ardnastruban house is guaranteed! We had a lovely room, spotlessly clean and the living room for guests is truly nice and cosy with wonderful views.The breakfast was copious and delicious. Although we only stayed for one night we were sorry to say goodbye to our hosts. They are so kind and helpful.We have been travelling in Britain for more than 35 years, but this was certainly one of the most welcoming B&B's we ever slept in. Need I say more?

Our fourth visit to Ardnastruban was just as enjoyable as our first. Margaret and Stewart are so hospitable and nothing is too much trouble. They are always happy to spend time with guests and give lots of guidance about the area, where to eat, etc. They are very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and where to go to get the best chance of seeing otters, eagles etc. We noticed that they have been given a gold award by Hebridean Hopscotch, and this is well deserved. Excellent accommodation and super breakfasts with plenty to choose from. Comfortable lounge where we spent time in the evenings. The guest house is ideally situated to discover the Uists and Benbecula. We hope to return next year.

We were given a warm, friendly welcome on arrival with a big pot of tea, cake and biscuits. We were made to feel at home and had interesting chats with our hosts who were very knowledgeable of the area. We had access to a very comfortable lounge in the evening with a large selection of books and information. Our bedroom was a high standard with a tremendous view across to Benbecula. Breakfast was excellent and taken around a large table with the other guests and this prompted interesting discussion. We would highly recommend staying here.

Finally found the time to write this review. We stayed back in July having used trip advisor when choosing our stops and overnight stay options. All excellent reviews are "spot on" A super welcome and very nice b&b accommodation. Grill Margaret and Stewart for their local knowledge. They recommended Langass Lodge for Dinner, phoned up and booked a table for us. Owner had "hand-dived" scallops that very day and the dish we had that evening will live long in the memory as will our visit to South & North Uist. Thank-you both!
