Graham Sibblad are delighted to offer the Castlebay Hotel for sale on the Isle of Barra, which is affectionately known as "The Jewel of the Outer Hebrides". The Isle of Barra (together with the causeway linked Island of Vatersay) forms the southern tip of the permanently inhabited islands of the Outer Hebridean "chain", a 130-mile-long string of islands (The Western Isles). Barra, often referred to as the "Island of Flowers", is considered by many to be the most beautiful small island in Britain - boasting beaches, hills, machair, and moor - all contained on this small island which attracts a full cross-section of visitors. The most famous beach is the Traigh Mhor (cockle strand) where the aeroplane from Glasgow lands on the beach (the only commercially operated beach landing strip in the world) providing quick daily links to/from central Scotland. Castlebay, which itself is dominated by the island Kisimul Castle, and is the island's main centre, is where the daily ferry service from Oban berths. Simply put the Isle of Barra has a timeless charm and beauty that can only be understood and appreciated by those who have visited the island. The Castlebay Hotel, the first hotel on Barra dates back to the 1860s, has an elevated position overlooking the ferry terminal. The hotel trades all year round enjoying a full mix of custom from locals, visitors (on business or leisure) and of course tourists. The hotel provides comfortable bedroom accommodation; a full food and beverage facility for visitors and locals alike; with the separate public bar a popular venue with its live music sessions.
