    We spent 3 nights here and felt very privileged to do so. Hughina is an amazing hostess, very friendly, incredibly helpful as well professional. Born on the island she provided us with an amazing insight about life on Barra both past and present – we could have listened to her for hours! Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated furnished well organized accommodation and lovely to have our own annex with outside seating area. A great selection for the very generous continental breakfast including fresh fruit and lovely cafetiere coffee. We couldn`t have wished for more. Thank you Hughina , you are amazing!

    1. Dear William
      Glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to host you.

    A real privilege to stay with Hughina, who is absolutely delightful, very welcoming and was happy to share with us so much about island life both past and present. The accommodation was spotless, very comfortable and well equipped and lovely to have private outside seating and lounge areas in addition to en-suite bedroom. Breakfast was plentiful with a great selection. We couldn’t have wished for more. Thank you Hughina, you are a real star!

    We had a wonderful one night stay here. The place was spotless, very cosy and towels were extremely fluffy. Hughina was an incredibly accommodating host and the breakfast was a real highlight. Would definitely stay here again!

    We had a lovely stay at Hughina’s. She was welcoming on arrival and responsive to all communication prior to arrival. Hughina’s attention to detail is impeccable. We felt spoilt during our stay even with the obvious covid guidelines. The breakfast was amazing.

    I highly recommend Hughina’s B&B for a 5 star accommodation experience on the Isle of Barra.

    1. Hi Lori,

    I spend the first 3 nights of my Hebridean tour in Hughina’s mini hotel suite which is the best way to describe it with private sitoutery where I could park my bike and enjoy the evening sun, private sitting/dining room where I could enjoy the tasty breakfast and en suite bedroom complete with Netflix/Amazon Prime and more streamed TV, highly recommended.
    All spotlessly clean, thanks Hughina you are a model mine host it was a great start to my holiday.

    Just had 2 wonderful nights in Hughina’s immaculate b&b suite. Brilliant healthy, filling continental breakfast complemented by delicious coffee. Luxuriously soft, large towels. Really enjoyed chatting to Hughina and we laughed together. A home from home!

    I had such a lovely stay here! I cycled and was so delighted to reach such a beautiful room at the end of a long day. I’m vegan and was so impressed with all the vegan food options for breakfast, as well as vegan cappacino sachets and treats in my bedroom. I felt very safe in terms of Covid, with a separate entrance and my own area. Lovely en suite too. Great location for the Hebridean way, on the route close to the Eriskay ferry. Just wish I’d stayed longer.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      Thank you for the review.

    This is a little gem complete with your own small sitting room and patio area. Immaculate. Hughina is a fount of knowledge about her island and there is a selection of local books if you want to know more. A lovely stay. Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Nick,
      Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you .

  • Rowan

    The perfect place to stay on Barra. Very cosy and comfortable space with everything you could wish for, a delicious breakfast and the fluffiest towels! Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Hughina for hosting us.

    1. Hi Rowan,
      Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you.

  • Steve Hankinson

    What a delightful and lovely place to stay.
    The accommodation is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. I spend a lot of time travelling and this is one of the best I have used. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly which, after my long journey , was very welcome. I shall certainly use this accommodation again.

    1. Hi Steve,
      Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay.

    We spent one night at Hughina’s place whilst walking the Hebridean Way. Hughina has created a wonderful little haven with all the amenities of a quality hotel in a small, traditional house.

    She helped by taking our baggage to the nearby ferry terminal and she made it clear that nothing could be too much trouble for her.

    The buffet breakfast was lovely with fresh ingredients, served in our own private sitting room.

    1. Hi Gordon and Christine,
      Glad you enjoyed your stay.
      Thank you.

  • Sharon Lindsay

    This accommodation is delightful with everything you could possibly need. The hostess, Hughina, took great care of me. Many thanks.

    1. Hi Sharon,
      Glad you enjoyed your stay.
      Thank you.

  • Julie Basford

    Just back from a great stay here. Lovely accommodation with a nice sitting area. Really enjoyed the breakfast. Kind and friendly host. Totally recommended.

    1. Hi Julie and Daryl,
      Glad you enjoyed your stay.
      Thank you.

    My wife and I had a lovely stay at Hughina’s while hiking the Hebridean Way. We were greeted with an extremely warm welcome, including an offer to dry our wet gear and boots, which was most needed due to the day’s weather. Thank you, Hughina! The accommodation is a very high standard and beautifully decorated. Everything was just how it’s pictured, but even better, really. It was great to have the separate sitting room to browse the information on the islands and to enjoy the very generous breakfast. The location is perfect – the ferry is just up the road – and Hughina was a very gracious host. We’d stay again in a heartbeat!

    We had a wonderful three-night stay at Hughina’s “Huilavagh B&B”, which was indeed like a little perfect hotel for us! She really organized everything perfectly from the huge breakfast (for just two people!) to the bedroom and bathroom! Hughina is a really welcoming and service-orientated woman who loves Barra and everything she does. And even if you have a special inquiry, like if the ferry would start earlier on the Sunday morning, she doesn’t mind to prepare the perfect start for the leaving day! She also gave us a hand with two or three other issues, which was a great help! It was so sad, we couldn’t stay longer, because we really liked it and would love to come back in the future! If a couple likes privacy, calmness and a really good stay in a B&B on Barra: that’s definitely the place to book and stay!

      Thank you very much for your great review much appreciated. It was a pleasure to have you stay.

  • Ian J

    Lovely stay last night at Huilavagh. Hughina made us most welcome and it was lovely to have more space than your average b&b. The accommodation includes a separate entrance with space to sit out, breakfast area with sofa as well as a good bedroom and bathroom. All we’re spotless and looked brand new. The continental breakfast was plentiful and set us up for the day.
    Thank you Hughina

      We spent 2 nights with Hughina and honestly could not have had a better experience. The rooms are spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is the best I have ever had at any B and B and Hughina is so welcoming and friendly. Would definately stay here again and wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.
      Amanda and Stuart
