We enjoyed our trip so much last year we booked again, and I am delighted to say our stay was just as good as last year. Val and Pete could not do enough for us, the breakfasts were delicious as were the raspberry muffins. The weather was not on our side, but we still had a very comfortable stay. See... More

Val and Pete are the best hosts! They are very welcoming - including lemon drizzle cake on arrival - thanks Val! They are both very knowledgeable about the area in which they live. The place is very clean and comfortable with genuine hospitality. We stayed for 2 nights and Val packed us off with muffins on both days. The breakfast... More

Val and Pete were so kind to me. Their very comfortable home was a harbour in a storm. You both made me feel so welcome, bedraggled wet and weary, your hospitality was so genuine. You both made so much effort. Everything about my stay was memorable. Thank you for taking me in !

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
