Having stayed in many B&B's in many countries, Carminish House is up there with the very best of them. Val's warm welcome makes you feel at home immediately and you soon find that she has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. Lovely breakfasts, comfortable rooms and a lounge to relax and admire the views, lots of local information... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Val and Pete's lovely B&B. The setting is perfect, right on the water front, with great views across the Sound of Harris. The house is very comfortable, modern and newly refurbished, pleasantly decorated and furnished. The guests have the use of a sitting room with panoramic windows and fantastic views. It's within walking distance... More

We have just returned from four nights at Carminish House where we were treated like family by Val and Pete. Nothing is too much trouble for them - from cooking delicious breakfasts, booking tables for dinner, supplying endless tea,coffee and home baking..........it just goes on and on! The situation overlooking the water is just perfect when you want to relax... More

Val's breakfasts were unsurpassed as was her hospiality. The rooms were very comfortable with the most wonderful view across the Harris coast (which in the morning included seals). Sorry to have to leave.Such a beautiful place. Highly recommended.

This was quite honestly the most welcoming B&B I've ever stayed in. Pete and Val have an open, down to earth way that makes you feel right at home and like you've known them for years! My husband and I spent 3 nights here and were so well-looked after with delicious breakfasts, homemade muffins to take away for day trips... More

Val and Pete were extremely genial hosts who could not do enough for you. A real home from home, tea and cake on arrival. We did the St Kilda trip and Pete provided weather details whilst Val provided chocolate brownies. The breakfasts were wonderful especially the fresh fruit salad. My husband thought the salmon omelette was delicious. The lounge had... More

We stayed here for five nights last week and my only wish was that we could have stayed for more. The house is in a beautiful location, with wonderful views of the sea and islands. Our hosts Val and Pete were friendly, caring , enthusiastic, just lovely people. Breakfasts were delicious and generous! Each day Val would give us information... More

We stayed at Carminish for 3 nights in early October and could write reams of praise about the place. Everything was wonderful- the room; the food; the views, but perhaps most of all, Pete and Val who were welcoming, helpful, full if interesting information and just very, very lovely people. We couldn't have wished for anything more. Thank you!!

We only had one night booked here, but had we more time, we would have extended our stay. This is one of the cleanest and most comfortable B&B's we stayed in during our 2 months away. Val was our hostess, and we couldn't have asked for a friendlier, more helpful or hospitable person to look after us. Cup of tea... More
