On the tiny island of Grimsay with superb tidal channel views, Ardnastruban House bed and breakfast is great for touring both North and South Uist.

Ardnastruban House – personal service, comfort, local produce and great hospitality.

Margaret and Stewart offer comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation and a warm welcome for you at Ardnastruban House.

Here on the small island of Grimsay, connected by causeways to North Uist and Benbecula, there are delightful views over the surrounding countryside and the sea channel.

Ardnastruban House is just about half way along the Hebridean island hopping journey through Eriskay, South Uist, Benbecula, Grimsay, North Uist and Benbecula. All are connected by roads over causeways – with ferries to the mainland, Barra, Harris and Lewis.

Accommodation at Ardnastruban House

The three guest rooms, guests’ lounge and dining room are  in an area of the house that’s separate from the hosts’ own living accommodation. The comfortable bedrooms are fully equipped with flat screen television, DVD player, central heating, tea and coffee making tray, quality beds and fabrics, plus an ensuite shower room or private bathroom.

Food and drink

For your evening meal, it’s a 5 to 10 minute drive to Stepping Stones (Balavanich), where bar and restaurant meals are served- reservation suggested. There’s also a takeaway in Balavanich.  Around 15 minutes drive north is Langass Lodge, where bar and restaurant meals are served – reservation essential.  For a picnic lunch, prepared seafood from the nearby Kallin Shellfish shop and bread from the local bakers is recommended.

Breakfasts include local produce – such as eggs, bacon, sausages, plus local smoked salmon, black pudding and kippers (all subject to availability).

You’re welcome to relax in the lounge, browse a small library of local interest books or borrow a laminated OS map to guide you while you stay here. In the morning, your choice from our breakfast menu is served, while you view the local scenery and, perhaps, catch a glimpse of the wildlife that abounds.

Grimsay is a great place to stay a while and enjoy what the Outer Hebrides have to offer. You can use Ardnastruban House as a base to explore the islands from Eriskay to Berneray or get to know Grimsay better.

“One of the world’s best B&Bs – The star of our recent holiday touring the Hebrides was this wonderful B&B in North Uist. It’s run by a Lancastrian couple who have lived for a number of years locally. The hospitality, local knowledge and quality of breakfast are really outstanding. If you are in the Uists – stay here. We got great local advice (that enabled us to see a Golden Eagle and its chick on the nest), freshly made tea and biscuits on arrival and a dram and a chat in the the evening.” – A TripAdvisor reviewer.
