Hotels in Isle of South Uist
Isle of South Uist
Orasay Inn is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty at the north end of the Isle of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides.
The hotel is centrally placed for exploring the Uists, Benbecula, Berneray & Eriskay (all linked by causeways), with Barra only 35 minutes by ferry.
Owned and managed by Isobel & Alan Graham, this small, intimate hotel and restaurant serves some of the finest food in the Hebrides.
Orasay is the ideal location for a special Hebridean holiday. Whatever type of activity you prefer, we provide a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, with the best of fresh, local cuisine, as an end to the perfect day. After your meal you can sit back in the lounge and witness some of the most spectacular sunsets you may ever see. If you feel a little more active the surrounding area is perfect for an evening stroll.
In the near vicinity of the hotel, indeed sometimes from the hotel, it is possible to see all kinds of wildlife. Hen-harriers are common and the sighting of a Sea-eagle is not unusual.
After training at Inverness College, Isobel's ambition had always been to own and run her own restaurant. Following a couple of years in hotels on the mainland she returned to her roots and after more experience gained, catering in the Uists, Isobel finally achieved her wish, in 1987, with the opening of Orasay Inn, primarily operating as a restaurant. In the following years the building has been adapted and extended to form the existing, nine bedroom, hotel.
For the restaurant, a superb selection of fish and seafood comes fresh from boat to hotel kitchen, supplied by local fishermen. Much of our beef is from our own fold of Highland Cattle, raised on our croft. Discerning, reliable producers and suppliers, who are aware of the quality we require, deliver locally reared Hebridean lamb, pork, game, poultry and vegetables.
Using only the best quality ingredients and Isobel's own creative style of cooking, our restaurant has gained a reputation throughout the Hebrides, and beyond, for the provision of excellent dishes of generous proportion, though they can be provided to suit individual appetites.
Meals, all freshly prepared to order, can be chosen from our a la carte menu or our Catch of the Day board. Our assistant chef is a qualified baker and as well as producing fresh bread and scones, he conjures up a selection of mouth-watering desserts to round of your Orasay Inn meal experience.
