    This is a lovely cottage in a magnificent location overlooking a large sandy beach.
    Inside, there is plenty of space and the rooms are really well laid out. The cottage is very clean and finished to a high level and has a very cosy feel to it, complete with a wood burning stove for those not-so-nice days. On the nicer days, there is a large area of decking for enjoying the excellent views and tranquility. We loved staying here and exploring Barra, having that beach a few metres away was simply amazing, plenty of rock pools for the kids, also there are some great walks in the area on both sides of the island. Highly recommended.

    We had a really lovely visit to Barra and Crofters Cottage was perfect for us.
    The mixed bag of weather meant we fully appreciated both the patio and the wood burning stove! The Island is so beautiful and the holiday worked brilliantly for my mum, who really enjoyed herself.
    We would love to make a return visit to Crofters Cottage some time – fingers crossed – and meantime such happy memories.

    This is a fantastic cottage situated in an amazing location. The views are out of this world and we spent quite a lot of time sitting on top of the sand dunes (just over the road) having an early morning coffee, looking out to sea, listening to the seals and birds. We had fab weather and ended up walking from the cottage on several occasions along amazing beaches and up onto the fell for fab views of the surrounding isles.
    The cottage has everything that you could need for a comfortable holiday It’s very well equipped and very roomy. It’s quiet location guarantees a good night’s sleep!! I thought the welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch!
    We would definitely stay here again but I think we’d have to book far in advance as I’ve got a feeling that it might become very popular!

    After a long journey from Surrey we arrived to find a warm, immaculately clean and comfortable cottage equipped with everything one could need, including a welcoming bottle of wine and even binoculars to view the wildlife out at sea. There was also food in the larder – very helpful when arriving after the shops had shut.
    We were blessed with glorious weather and the cottage is situated literally within a stone’s throw of a beautiful beach and clear blue sea, with many others close at hand. The views are amazing with local walks close at hand. A visit to the airport to watch the plane landing on the beach is a must.
    Barra is a beautiful island, well worth the long journey and Crofters Cottage was the icing on the cake. Thoroughly recommended.

    We’ve been visiting the Scottish islands for a number of years now (including Barra) and this is by far the best accommodation we’ve ever had! The location was just perfect – literally 10 seconds to a quiet (we saw one other couple for the entirety of our stay), white sandy beach and we will hugely miss waking up to the stunning sea views every morning.

    The cottage is fantastic! Fiona and her team have thought of everything (and I mean everything! The cupboards were bursting!). It has even been updated a bit since the photos (it now has a huge TV, which suited us!) and has been very tastefully decorated. It is very comfortable (the beds were so comfy), and the space was a great size for our party of four adults and 2 dogs (with room to spare). The garden is fully enclosed and wraps around the entire house, which provided endless fun for our dogs to chase each other around. Evenings were spent looking out to sea with a bbq and glass of wine on the veranda. We enjoyed it so much it was hard to pull ourselves away to see the rest of Barra!

    We are already looking for dates so we can return as soon as possible. We’re so happy we found this place! Thank you for such a brilliant holiday!

    Spent an excellent week getting away from it all at Crofters. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for quality accommodation on the island. The wood burning stove is perfect for a stormy night.

    We stayed for a week just now – very clean and well-equipped cottage on the most beautiful part of the island with the most magnificent beaches just a few mins walk. Wonderful views, beds very comfortable, great showers, everything worked beautifully. And Fiona delightful to deal with. Couldn’t recommend Crofter’s Cottage enough.
