‘Good things come in small packages!’
Barra holds a special place in the hearts of many. Us Scottish folk have a tendency to throw around the word ‘wee’, even in instances where something isn’t all that small. I can assure you however that Barra definitely falls into the ‘wee’ category. At just 8 miles x 5 miles at the widest point, it’s certainly not one of Scotland’s larger islands, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in beauty and plenty of character!
Barra supplies infinitely breathtaking scenery, fantastic local produce & crafts, and an enviable and palpable sense of community, all rooted in a rich clan history.
We invite you to make your stay at Seabreezes your home from home. We love our island home and are dedicated to providing all the comforts and conveniences of modern-living.
Explore what we have to offer and book your accommodation today and enjoy the escape you deserve.
Hop on a boat to make the memorable journey to the ‘Castle in the Sea’.
