Pollochar Inn South Uist
Pollochar Inn South Uist - Polochar Inn stands in a beautiful location at the south-west tip of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides. Built on the water’s edge, it is the perfect base for peaceful walks along the island’s stunning beaches, taking in views of Eriskay and Barra.
This 4 star inn was once a change-house: a place where one could wait for the ferry when travelling between South Uist and Eoligarry on Barra.
The original building dates back to circa 1750 and retains many of its original features; it is now privately owned by local sisters Morag MacKinnon and Margaret Campbell whose aim is to ensure you sample true island hospitality and comfort while exploring this wonderful part of the Outer Hebrides.
The name ‘Polochar’ comes from the Gaelic ‘Poll a Charra’, meaning inlet (’Poll’) and large stone or rock (’Charra’), hence ‘inlet of stone’. This refers to the standing stone which is situated across from the inn and which is thought to date from the Megalithic / late Neolothic / early Bronze Age.
