George, Fiona and Maureen MacLeod are your hosts when you stay, or dine, at the Castlebay Hotel on Barra, the most southerly of the Western Isles. The Hotel overlooks Kisimul Castle, the harbour and the beautiful island of Vatersay. It is a pleasure to relax and watch the changing scene around the bay, whether in the sun porch, in the cocktail bar over a dram, in the garden or in your room.

Barra has often been described as the "Hebrides in Miniature" and indeed in many ways it is with its beautiful beaches, backed by machair, meadows filled with wild flowers, rocky eastern coast, and hilly interior. In late Spring and Summer the island is a riot of colourful flowers, and is also a good place for bird watching with Golden Eagles, Gannets, Terns and Corncrakes perhaps the most exciting species to see or hear. Otters and Seals are common, and various species of whales and dolphins may be seen from the ferry.

The Hotel is the ideal place to come and unwind. It is run by the MacLeod family and their friendly, caring attention to service is a very important part of ensuring that you will. Simply absorbing the peace and pace of life of this vibrant island community is to relax. There is plenty to see and do, from a walk down the village street to see the ferry come in to strolls along the many beaches or more strenuous walks in the hills. The wealth of archaeology can also be explored.

Bikes and cars can be hired on the island which can be reached by ferry from Oban, Mallaig (in summer) or South Uist and by air from Glasgow. The aircraft lands on Barra's unique airfield which is on a beach!
