Although closed for the winter, Pete and Val opened up their doors to some weary workman, we arrived just before midnight to be welcomed with a much needed cup of tea and muffins that you would want to kill for. The place was exceptionally clean, fresh and the attention to detail was masterful. The hosts made you feel like home,... More

During a lengthy tour of Scotland's Highlands and islands in the early fall of 2014, I stayed in 21 different hotels and b&bs. Carminish House was one of the two best.  After a tiring drive through the beautiful desolation of Lewis and Harris, I was more than ready to experience the near-luxury of Peter and Val's place. I felt I... More

Our room’s was immaculately clean comfortable well equipped as is the rest of the house, with great views over the Sound of Harris (binoculars provided in the Guests lounge) a very good location to explore many local attractions / beaches...

Peter and Val are the consummate hosts as they make you feel like long lost friends and then make sure that all the guests are introduced to each other and have a chance to learn from each other. The attention to detail is most impressive and the breakfast is 5 star beginning with the very fresh fruit bowl.

Arriving on foot from Leverburgh Pier with pull- along luggage in tow, you soon realise what an unbeatable location Carminish House is in. A friendly wave from Val at the sound of our luggage was the first indication of the warm welcome to come. Our room was impeccably clean and beautifully finished with touches of the local Harris Tweed. All... More

We couldn't have wished for a better welcome from Val and Peter. Regretfully we only spent one night at Carminish House, but could easily have spent longer. Our room was elegant and comfortable with an amazing view over the Sound of Harris, and the helpful advice offered us by Val enabled us to make the most of our visit to... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Carminish House at the end of July. Val was the best host we could've hoped for! Great brekkie and super helpful. Great advice to head up the Golden Road (Harris east coast) which is a must. We got engaged near flood bay with wild grey seals swimming in the background, that night Val gave... More

We stayed for two nights and were delighted with this B&B. Situated on the coast with excellent views over the Sound of Harris this is a great base for sea trips from Leverburgh, galleries on the Golden Road or the stunning beaches of West Harris. Bedrooms are spacious and well-appointed, all on the ground floor with most having great sea... More

My husband and I spent three memorable nights at Carminsh House last week and were admirably looked after by Peter and Val who are the most generous hosts. We were warmly welcomed into their home which was immaculate with beautiful views over the water – even an otter was seen from the window, along with boats and ferry. Our room... More
