Opened in 2018, John’s Bunkhouse Berneray, is in the middle of the Outer Hebrides chain of islands. It is stylish, purpose-built and combines the charm of a traditional building with the comfort of a modern, well-equipped hostel. It is a 10 minute walk to the Harris ferry, the causeway to North Uist and the local shop and restaurant. The hostel is by a tidal beach which is perfect for swimming, kitesurfing and foraging. From there you can walk to the 3 mile long sandy West Beach, bordered by sand dunes, with views out west to St Kilda and the Atlantic and north to Harris. It is is an ideal stopping off point for those walking or cycling the Hebridean Way and those seeking a quiet out of season retreat.

It accommodates 8 people in three separate bunkrooms and includes a drying room, bike shed and spacious kitchen living room. It is heated by a peat burning stove and has underfloor heating from an air source heat pump.
