Welcome / Fàilte

Polochar Inn is located at the south-west tip of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides.  Built on the waters edge, it is a peacful base for walks along the island's beautiful beaches with views across to Eriskay and Barra.

This 4 star inn was once a change-house; a place where one could wait for the ferry between South Uist and Eoiligarry on Barra.  The original building is Grade B listed retaining many original features and dates back to circa 1750.

The name 'Polochar' comes from the Gaelic 'Poll a Charra', meaning inlet (Poll) and large stone (Charra), hence inlet of the stone.  Refering to the standing stone which is situated across from the inn.  It is thought the stone dates back to around 2000 BC.  

If you want to get away from a busy schedule or are looking for a peaceful retreat, Polochar Inn is the ideal location.
