Managed by the owners and in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Orasay Inn has has an excellent reputation for its food.

Orasay Inn country inn accommodation in South Uist.

Orasay Inn has gradually evolved from what was originally a restaurant enterprise by its owners Isobel and Alan Graham.  Isobel, is well known in Scotland as a ‘TV chef’ and was part of the team that prepared the gala dinner at the opening of the Scottish Parliament.  She runs the kitchen at the Orasay Inn with the assistance of a excellent baker/sous chef.

By car, Orasay Inn is around two minutes drive from the main north-south Outer Hebrides ‘spine’ road – it’s very quiet, but not isolated.  There are views out towards the Isle of Skye and plenty of opportunity to watch a wide variety of birdlife over the crofts that separate the hotel from the sea loch.

In addition to the guest rooms, there’s a comfortable lounge in which to relax after a day’s touring and an attractive modern restaurant.

Accommodation at Orasay Inn

One of the bedroom pictures above features  one of the price group 4 superior rooms, which have their own private balcony-deck – ideal for peaceful relaxation, or to view passing wildlife.

The other image is one of the standard rooms at price group 3, which are also available – a bit less spacious, without the deck, and some with with side or rear views –  but it’s an excellent way to enjoy the Orasay Inn’s attractions on a tighter budget.

The bedrooms are all well appointed with TV, hospitality tray, phone and ensuite facilities.


The restaurant is ideally situated to take advantage of the landscape, with large windows revealing the panoramic view towards Loch Carnan and, on a clear day, the mountains of Skye. Adjoining the restaurant is a comfortable lounge, with bar, where guests can relax.

Outside, the restaurant opens onto an attractive decked area, with access to the lawned garden. Sheltered from the prevailing wind direction, this area will often be a  pleasant sun-trap in summer.

There are home-made desserts and “daily specials” and “catch of the day” to choose from. too..

Finally, don’t forget to eat some seafood. The scallops, in particular, are enormous and one of the best ways to enjoy them is as part of a seafood platter at the Orasay Inn. Clean functional and home to one of the best chefs on the islands.” – from  ‘The Sunday Times’ Travel Section.
