Listed below are what our guests thought of their experience with Barra Beach Cottages.


We have just returned from a fantastic week on Barra. We stayed in Sonas cottage and were very impressed with the standard of this accommodation. These cottages have recently undergone refurbishment, and being return guests to the cottage, we were delighted with the improvements. Everything is much more modern and each of the 3 bedrooms now has en suite facilities. Morag, our host, welcomed us on arrival. It was great to find tea, coffee, washing up liquid, toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets and other essential items provided for us. The location of the cottage is, in our opinion, perfect. We really feel that it is in a prime position. We saw glorious sun sets night after night and spotted a dolphin one evening. If we ever return to Barra, and I hope that we do, I won't be staying anywhere else!

"Location is outstanding"

Morag has transformed Barra Beach cottages. there is great attention for detail nothing has been forgotten or left to chance. The location is outstanding and brilliant for kids and dogs with Tangasdale beach next door. You will be assured of a warm welcome!

"Absolutely stunning"

Been on the island several times however this was the first time staying at Barra Beach Cottages. It won’t be the last. They were exceptionally well stalked, immaculately cleaned and the view was absolutely stunning. Could not have picked a better spot to relax and enjoy this beautiful island. Thanks for the hospitality - the welcome and unobtrusive handover was greatly appreciated

"Lovely comfortable cottage"

The owners gave us a genuinely warm welcome to this lovely comfortable cottage in its superb location. The cottage is beautifully presented and very well equipped. The views from it over the rocks to the sea are absolutely stunning and the sunsets can be spectacular. We also became ardent bird watchers of the wide variety of sea birds, particularly dippers and divers during our visit. We cannot praise this accommodation highly enough and suffice to say "we'll be back"!


"Warm and comfortable"

The cottage (we stayed in no 2) is in a wonderful position overlooking Halaman Bay, with mesmerising sea views out of the windows at the back and to the side. It has been recently refurbished to an excellent standard, although we felt there were a few practical details that could have been improved. Each bedroom has its own ensuite, which is great, but the size of the wet room, and especially the tiny washbasin, has been compromised in favour of an overly large wardrobe/cupboard, and there is only a teeny shelf obscuring the mirror and no hook for face cloth or hand towel. In the twin bedroom that we used there was only one bedside cabinet and reading lamp - I borrowed a second one from another bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped but the layout means that the sink and the cooking areas are in two different 'rooms' and the lighting over the cooker is very poor - I borrowed another bedside lamp and put it on top of the fridge! Nevertheless, a super place, warm and comfortable.

"Fabulous cottages"

Fabulous cottages with incredible views of the sea & access to Tangasdale Beach. Very warm, comfortable and well-equipped. Absolutely spotless & the owners couldn’t have been more helpful. We’ll be back.



Brilliant cottage in a brilliant location.Very comfortable.


"Stunning views"

Beautiful, magical place with stunning views of sunsets over the Atlantic. Lovely cottage with every need catered for.


"Beautiful location"

We stayed in Barra Beach Cottages back in June 2019. A beautiful location situated near sunset beach, sit outside on the decking or if it’s chilly sit inside at the full length windows watch and enjoy the spectacular sunset views. The cottages themselves have been fully renovated to a good standard with a dog friendly garden. I’d definitely recommend Barra Beach Cottages for your island holiday base camp.


"Gorgeous cottages"

Gorgeous cottages. Perfect location. Very helpful owners..


"Hope to stay here again"

My husband and I, along with friends, stayed in one of the newly re furbished Barra Beach Cottages in June 2019. The most wonderful aspect of theses cottages is their location. The surrounding scenery is amazing, it is extremely peaceful and words can't describe how glorious the sunsets are. My husband and I have visited Barra 4 times, and have always stayed in these cottages. They have always been, and remain, great value for money. This year, our stay was the best ever, thanks to the recent refurbishment of the property. We were extremely impressed with the new decor and modernisation. The cottage is very well equipped, catering comfortably for 4 adults. Both bedrooms hav en suite facilities affording each couple their privacy. On arrival, we were greeted by the owner and a complimentary bottle of wine ! Our host was attentive in a non intrusive way. I cannot recommend these cottages highly enough and hope to stay here again one day should we be fortunate enough to return to Barra
