We stayed for two nights in August. This is possibly the best B&B we have used and certainly the best value for money we found during a tour of the Outer Hebrides.


"Fantastic value for money"

From arrival to departure this has been the best B&B I have ever stayed at.


"Excellent B&B"

We were in the Captains Cabin which was brilliant. Beautiful views over the bay. Everything was spotless with a few extra touches. Bottles of water with juice, shampoo and shower gel with bathrobes on the bathroom door. It was home from home. Breakfast was excellent with a varied choice. We used the books and TV in the lounge provided which had excellent views over the bay. We would highly recommend the Bayview to anyone looking for home from home comforts and excellent hospitality.

"A touch of class"

I have got to say the Bayview in Barra oozes class. The owners Roddy and Christine work tirelessly and nothing is ever too much trouble to them. They both go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible ...
