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

We recently spent 5 nights at Carters Rest. There's a reason why so many rate it so highly; Julie and Steve are outstanding hosts in all ways and took care of our every need. We felt genuinely cared for and supported in our travels around Skye. We would return in an instant. First class in all respects! Terri & Jim... More

Had a 2 night stay following a night at the Uig Hotel...and what a difference. This is a gem. A very warm welcome by the hosts followed by a room that did not disappoint. We had the mid sized room...a small suite. Lovely set up with a settee in a good sized room. Bed is memory foam which means it... More

We only stayed one night at Carter's Rest as we were touring Scotland, but it was superb. The self catering apartment was beautiful, very well equipped and with some lovely added extras. Steve and Julie were so welcoming. Carter's Rest is sat amongst absolutely stunning scenery, perfect for walking. If we return to Skye we will most definitely return here!

Carter's rest is situated in the most stunning places on earth - Skye. The road to the guesthouse offers beautiful sunsets and the view from the breakfast room is amazing. The guesthouse itself is lovely, with a pool table downstairs, hot tub in the room, and other small thoughtful touches that make a difference. The hosts are very welcoming and... More

Excellent! Very warm and informative hosts Steve and Julie. Spotless room with some lovely touches. Breakfast has to be one of the best I've had! Fresh fruit, orange juice, egg and salmon. Our hosts were only too pleased to help us with travel arrangements and knew all the best places to go

My husband, myself and our adult daughter spent 3 nights in the self catering Seagull's Nest at Carter's Rest. The apartment was spotless, roomy and fully stocked. Steve and Julie could not have been better hosts. Steve enthusiastically helped us plan our adventure for each day and lent us maps, books and trekking poles. The setting is spectacular, Cliffs, waterfalls... More
