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

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

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
