Excellent B&B and owners couldn't have been more helpful. Great location, superb breakfast, lovely room with lots of little treats, home made scones, rocky road nibbles, wine chilled, glasses supplied and made to feel very welcome. Well worth a visit.

Great place to visit. Take your waterproofs. We travelled round the islands on a small boat. So saw the seals and whales that live nearby. Enjoy the rugged coast and beautiful scenery.

What a beautiful beach. Weather was gorgeous when we were there. I thought I was at the Caribbean. Beautiful walks. We came across some miniature horses which I understand Eriskay is known for.

A beautiful beach on a beautiful island. Gorgeous white sand and crystal clear turquoise water. A wonderful place for a walk, or just to find a nice spot to sit and admire the view.
