Perched on the hillside above Castlebay, guests at the Craigard Hotel are treated to views of ships and smaller boats coming and going, Kisimul Castle in the bay, plus the expanse of the Isle of Barra’s natural harbour .

Craigard Hotel – amazing views on the Isle of Barra.

Comfort, relaxation, good company and excellent food. The Craigard Hotel aims to provide all the qualities you look for in a hotel, whether you visit the Isle of Barra.  Because it’s only a minute or so drive (or walk) from the terminal for the Calmac ferry to Oban, the Craigard Hotel is a very convenient place to start or finish your Scottish island hopping holiday.

The Craigard Hotel is situated on the hillside directly above the small town of Castlebay, with magnificent views over Kisimul Castle and beyond to the island of Vatersay.  Parking is available on reasonably level ground behind the hotel, so guests need not climb long flights of steps to reach this amazing vantage point!

The unique beach airport of Barra is about six miles away and the main ferry terminal, shops and township centre are all within a quarter mile.

The hotel is modern with residents’ breakfast room and a cosy TV lounge, which has an open fireplace plus comfortable sofa and chairs.  There is also a choice of attractive bars, plus a pool room.

Group 3 non-seaview rooms also available.

Accommodation at the Craigard Hotel

Each of the en-suite guest bedrooms is well appointed and comfortable, with tea and coffee making tray, TV, telephone, radio alarm and attractive fabrics


The restaurant enjoys the great view of the harbour, so it’s a pleasure to enjoy a dinner that has been prepared with quality local produce, including ‘catch of the day’ – renowned for its wonderful variety and freshness.   Daily specials represent excellent value.
