Highly recommended campsite. Facilities for campers using wheelchairs are excellent, take a look at my photo's to see the kitchen and toilet block. Very spacious with lots of room for access.

Café for Every Season, Every Journey

Kilbride Café is situated at the southern end of the Hebridean island of South Uist, beside the road that runs along the south shore of the island.  The café looks out across a small bay with white shell-sand beach and enjoys magnificent views across the Sound of Barra, with its sparkling turquoise seas and scattering of islands.

The café is a very popular stop for those walking or cycling the Hebridean Way, stopping either for rest and refreshments during the day, or with an overnight stop at our adjoining campsite and hostel.

The café is popular, too, with not only other holiday-makers, but local families too, In fact it's more than likely that you'll hear Gaelic spoken here at the café - not least because the café is owned and run by islanders.

With a spacious, light and airy dining room accommodating 30 or more, and with picnic-style tables out on the deck, there's room for everyone, regardless of the weather. This is indeed a café for every season, every journey. It's for everyone!
