    My partner and myself stayed here last year and we had a great time. Lovely family run B&B. The views from the rooms are stunning. Breakfast set us up for the rest of the day. We would highly recommend a stay here.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    I had a private seal just under my window! Maire is a great landlady, who is running all around the island, to keep fit – and because she likes it. The location is stunning! Beautiful rooms too. But dont expect any bacon in the morning…

    We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Mairi’s B&B. Great accomodation, a rich breakfast and a very kind and helpful host. We do recommend Meallard without hesitation!

    Can’t tell anything about the accomodation. I did book by mail and agreed on phone with the owner, unfortunately when i arrived, there was no one there. I had to find a place on my own during summer time where everything is booked.
    The owner did not reply to my phone calls. I did send a mail and she answered that she was waiting for us the week after and that she was not on the island… she did not help us to find another place.
    The tourist information office couldn’t reach the owner too…
    We went around the house 2 days after we arrived, and there was her car parked infront of the house….what a lie…
    Very disappointing.
    If you look for accomodation, you should look somewhere else….
    i do not recommend !

    I went with a friend to Mairi MacLean’s home in June 2018 for two nights. We found a very well-led B&B in wonderful location, a fresh large room (it was the “family room”) in perfect condition, incredible quiet surroundings close to a dream bay. We are completely happy having chosen that stay, hoping to return one day. Highly recommended!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Meallard. Mairi gave us such a warm and friendly welcome, extremely hospitable and kind. Our room was extremely comfortable, clean and with gorgeous views! What a great way to start our Hebridean Cycle. Breakfast was delicious. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Mairi for a wonderful stay.
    All the best …. Caroline and Rob

    We loved our stay at Meallard – a superb introduction to the Island of Barra. The house enjoys a very beautiful setting and views yet is only around a couple of miles from Castlebay. Everything was very comfortable and well appointed with a self serve generous continental breakfast – perfect! Mairi creates a really friendly, welcoming, comfortable home from home.

    I’ve stayed in Meallard a few times over the years. This time was as good as ever. Given that Mairi has about three other jobs, don’t expect her to be around all the time but do expect a very relaxing, laid back stay and some good advice about the island.

  • Gordon Robertson

    Mairi was the perfect host. She creates a wonderfully friendly, family atmosphere for all her guests, who end most nights sitting around the table outside chatting and listening to music. The peace and quiet outside Meallard is something else. It really does transport you to another place and time, much like the rest of Barra (and Vatersay, which you MUST visit if you travel to Barra). As for the accommodation, the rooms are very clean, spacious, and comfortable, the continental breakfast can be as early or late (and as much or little) as you fancy, and the overall vibe is one of relaxation. Highly, highly recommended. Thanks for everything, Mairi!

    An excellent stay. Highly recommended. A great start for our cycling tour of the Hebrides. Being open all year round is a real bonus.
