"Paul and Lisa love North Uist and they love sharing their home with visitors. This was one of the best B&Bs that Emma and I have every stayed in! Very comfortable bedroom (king size bed) and modern en suite. Breakfasts cooked to order every one of our 5 mornings here. We were also able to order an evening meal (which was a great provision during the current Covid-19 restrictions). Wonderful residents lounge with TV with full Sky package. We will definitely return here and will bring friends with us too!"
"We absolutely loved our stay - Paul and Lisa were such welcoming hosts and it was a pleasure to stay there. We only wished that we had stayed longer! The B&B is very stylish (beautifully decorated and newly done) and spotlessly clean. We loved our room and there were thoughtful touches like fluffy dressing gowns and tea/coffee making facilities. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The setting is so peaceful - go and stay a few nights - you will enjoy every minute!"
Ben View is in an ideal location for visiting not only North Uist, but also Benbecula and South Uist. Even in the autumn the birdlife is impressive, with many species difficult to see elsewhere - we saw Eagles, Harriers, Buzzards and plenty of waders, and in the summer the rare Corncrake nests in the adjacent field.
The bed and breakfast itself is first class - rooms nicely decorated, spotlessly clean with a large lounge area with proper fireplace and large TV. Breakfasts and evening meals were to a very high standard. From the guest bedrooms the sun can be seen rising above the mountains (Eaval) of the east coast of the island, and a thirty minute walk (less by car) to the nearby 'Masgeir' beach gives an ideal location for watching the sun go down over the Atlantic and a group of tiny nearby islands.
