    We stayed for 4 days earlier this month with our small dog. What a breath of fresh air, decent accommodation on Barra at last!!!
    We had a lovely welcome of scones and all the trimmings thank you ( they were delicious and very much appreciated).
    The chalet was very well thought out, we had everything you could need, plus one additional bonus, there are usb sockets in all the lamps in the rooms very useful, so you can easily charge all of your mobile devices.
    The bed was lovely and comfortable, the storage under the bed was more than enough and what beautiful views to wake up too.
    The shower and bathroom are also excellent.
    We found the chalet to be very quiet during any inclement weather conditions, which as it’s Barra are the norm.
    So from us five stars all the way ?
    We cannot wait to return in the New Year. ???
    A big thank you to Sally & Neil.

    A great stay for my first trip to Barra, a return trip for my husband and a special birthday and wedding anniversary celebration. Arrived starving off the afternoon flight and we were greeted in the fabulous accommodation with home made cake and tea/ coffee and milk all provided. V much appreciated. Great location for exploring the island and neighbouring Vatersay which we did courtesy of Barra bikes ( located across the bay) we were lucky with the weather and the views from the chalet were amazing, otters came swimming by most days. Handy for shops, eating out and island exploring on foot and by bike. Just perfect. Thanks for the hospitality!

    I had a brilliant 5 night stop here in January. The chalet was very cosy, well equipped and very convenient location to explore the beautiful island. I will absolutely be visiting again! Thank you to the lovely hosts Sally and Neil.

    Quality accomodation in an idyllic setting. We would not change anything. Neil was great to deal with. He was welcoming, and never far away. We stayed the last week in April. Glorious weather, and Bonnie View was the perfect base.

    Stayed at Bonnie View on two occasions now. Great location overlooking the bay and within walking distance of local shops. Chalet is clean, modern with all latest mod cons. Hosts live nearby , are not intrusive but are on hand if you have any problems.

    Bonnie View is first class in every way, very nice helpful owners. Perfect size for two people, modern kitchen and shower room, comfortable seating. The bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and plenty of storage. The windows in both rooms are large and the views from them are great, they look out to the sea. I cannot praise Bonnie View enough.

    Bonnie View. A great place to stay on Barra. Looks out over Bagh Beag (small bay) a narrow sea entrance tidal lagoon on the western side and on outskirts of Castlebay. Excellent modern self catering accommodation Kitchen/lounge, bedroom with en suite toilet shower room. Five minutes walk to Cooperative supermarket. Sally and Neil friendly helpful hosts. Brilliant for couples/singles. Had a great week enjoying the beauty of Barra and Vatersay. Highly recommend a visit to Bonnie View.

    Sally and Neil were excellent hosts, so pleasant and helpful. The chalet itself was lovely and had everything we needed, was very clean, comfortable, with lovely views and close to the local amenities – couldn’t ask for more. We loved our stay in Castlebay and on Barra and hope to be back.

  • Alan Smith

    An idyllic place to stay with otters only yards from the window, white tailed eagles overhead, stunning scenery and millions of flowers on the nearby machair. Neil and Sally are the perfect hosts, being on hand to deal with all queries ranging from boat trip enquiries to setting up phone signals for non-EE providers. We,very already booked for next year.

    Beautiful and well thought out accomodation, overlooking a small bay close to castlebay. The accomodation was superb and perfect for our needs as a couple. The huge windows overlooking the bay had great views over the small bay and what appears to be it’s regular otter. Nicely placed for vatersay (walkable but depends on fitness) castlebay is around a 15 minute walk, and the local coop is a 3 minute walk. Friendly hosts in a beautiful setting, and a great base for a longer stay – we were on Barra for a week as has made the ‘mistake’ of only staying 2 nights last time. Very very beautiful site and island.

    We visited in May our hosts Neil and Sally were prefect, they made us and our two dogs very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The chalet was modern, well equipped and spotless. Sincere thank you both we hope to comeback in the future.

  • Amanda Weatherburn

    We stayed beginning of June. We would highly recommend Bonnie View as it is in a perfect location for Barra and Vatersay with outstanding views for otter watching. The hosts were friendly and the accommodation was well equipped, clean and perfect for two.

    Superb modern layout with great views across sea lock. Very well equiped and superb location for local shops, pubs and resturants as well as ferry terminal.


  • Lynn Martin

    The chalet was in a perfect place; beautiful views over the water and very close to local supermarket. Restaurant and ferry terminal close by too so location perfect. The chalet was brilliantly equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. It was warm and comfortable even through some quite stormy weather. Sally’s home baking was the icing on the cake! A fabulous stay; thoroughly recommended!


  • Katherine Cape

    Bonnie View is in a great position- lovely views over the water and close to everything in Castlebay. Sally and Neil were great hosts and super helpful. Everything you need in cabin, great wifi and streaming and lovely welcome pack. This will be our go to destination every time we visit Barra!
