My husband & I had a lovely stay. Steve & Julie were amazing hosts - offering up local information and loaning us hiking books and trail maps. The breakfast was delicious, with the best view in the house. I can't underscore how great these 2 are and how seriously they take on the responsibility of making sure that you enjoy... More

We stayed at the self-catering apartment for 3 nights and had an amazing time. Our apartment was well appointed, clean, modern and catered to all our needs. Steve and Julie were great hosts, always there when you needed them! I would highly recommend staying at The Carter's Rest but they are pretty far out of town. There are no amenities... More

Steve and Julie ought to give training courses to other B&B owners on how to do it. There are things that have nothing to do with their actions (apart from choosing to take this place on): the house is positioned beautifully in the northwest of Skye, close to the amazing Neist Point lighthouse, and 9 miles from Dunvegan. The area... More

We stayed in Seagulls Nest which is the self catering part of Carters Rest. This was a huge upgrade from where we were previously staying. The apartment was spacious, modern and well equipped. Steve and Julie were perfect hosts and there when we needed them. We were going to dine at a place that a friend had suggested and Julie... More

Our stay could not have been better. Julia and Steve were so welcoming and helpful. Carters Rest is a bit remote, but most of the island is remote. It's a short drive or long walk out to a gorgeous lighthouse set in some amazing cliffside scenery. We could hear sheep bleating from our open window, and the spectacular view from... More

We only had one night at Carters Rest, but wished we could have stayed longer. Upper Milovaig is a gem in the northwest of Skye and Carters Rest is situated on the hill overlooking the bay and snug harbour. Everything here exceeded expectations, from the genuinely warm welcome of hosts Steve and Julia, to the attention to detail in the... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Carters Rest Guesthouse on Skye. It's quite remote (as is most of the lodging in Skye) and situated amidst hills, a handful of homes and beautiful views of the water, hills, and sheep. You drive there on a single track road (9 miles from Dunvegan) and feel you have truly disconnected... More

We spent 2 nights at Carter's rest and it was beyond our expectations for the price. We chose the standard room which has a great view of some mountains and sheeps but it was quiet enough For our beauty sleep haha. We reckon the location of the guesthouse is quieter as it is not directly along the road as compared... More

My wife and I recently returned from 9 days in Scotland, and this was the best place we stayed. Skye is visually spectacular and Carter's Rest is ideal for enjoying the scenery. Walking the lane towards the small harbor is a treat, and the nearby lighthouse (10 minutes by car) is wonderful. Try to get to the lighthouse early in... More
