“Perfect, it has it all.”
Reviewed 17 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had only booked for a few nights but we will be back. The location is ideal, it's a small walk to town, it's so peaceful and easy to find. The decking/ outdoor area was great. We had a few drinks outside in the sunshine, in the peace and quiet watching the wildlife. The caravan itself had everything you could need, all the basics/toilet roll, towels etc. The kitchen is really well equipped with every utensil you may ever need. TV and Wifi great. We didn't have a car but there was plenty of room to park. Catherine the owner was very friendly, she said if we needed anything just to chap her door, as there was no point, for example, buying a whole bottle of cooking oil when we may only need a tiny amount. We really appreciated this. Although the owner lived next door we never saw them once, All in all this is a great place for easy access to town and the island.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed 2 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful time. I would echo the views of the other reviewers, the caravan is immaculately clean, Catherine has thought of everything! There is even a washing machine and tumble drier for use, and for those who like it Wifi too. The view is stunning, the location is brilliant and Catherine and Iain and very friendly and welcoming, happy to help, but not at all intrusive. I would highly recommend it, and hope it will be available for our next visit to beautiful Barra!!

“Great Facilities, Superb Location and Lovely People”
Reviewed 31 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here for five nights and would highly recommend it to all. Don't hesitate to book it; very comfortable, immaculately clean and well equipped. The owners, Iain and Catherine, are very friendly and helpful but respect your privacy. We needed help with a few things and was given gladly; also Iain spotted my car tyres needed blown up and he had an electric pump to do so; service was well beyond what you might expect! The views from the mobile home are lovely and you have a real felling of being in the countryside.

“Fantastic accommodation”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Stayed for 4 nights with my partner. The caravan is in pristine condition and the friendly owners Catherine and Iain even put some milk in the fridge for our arrival. Catherine and Iain were fantastic and we were very grateful when they offered to pick us up off the ferry. The caravan itself is in a perfect location for cyclists, walkers and for driving. With a short walk from local shops, restaurants and bars in Castlebay. Caravan had everything we could of asked for and and provided the independence and extra space you won't find in B&Bs or hotels. Would recommend the place to anyone and will definitely be back in the future.
