We had a really lovely stay at Carter's Rest. The b&b is, as the materials say, "further than you think!"--just up the hill from the coast, in the northwest lobe of the island, a 15-minute drive along a single-lane road from the nearest town--a beautiful, desolate drive (populated by sheep and cows that occasionally wander into the road).

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Carter's Rest guesthouse at the end of March. What an experience! We didn't want to leave. We felt more than at home from the moment we arrived. Steve and Julie really know how to share their home and their country. Also, Julie cooks a mean breakfast - the most important meal of... More

Carter's Rest far exceeded my expectations! It really is a perfect spot set in a magical place. Julie and Steve are wonderful hosts who are warm, welcoming, funny people and very knowledgeable about hiking and other actvities. The rooms are spotless and the beds very comfortable; the living room is perfect for relaxing at the end of a busy day;... More

We had a lovely stay at this perfect B&B. The hosts Steve and Julie were very welcoming and chatty, they made us feel very comfortable. Our room was furnished to a very high standard and the attention to detail was admirable (including fresh flowers in the room). Breakfast was lovely, we don't eat "fry ups" so it was great to...

Carter's Rest is not the easiest place to find, however after negotiating the single track roads that seem to go for ever and suicidal sheep, the effort is well worth while. The area is remote and provides stunning views to the sea and over the green fields dotted with sheep and new born lambs. On arrival we were made very... More

Or, almost felt like the end of the world. Just a beautiful out of the way setting, if you are ready to abandon anything close to the fast-paced life. The single track roads do make it a slow go the further you venture into the Isle of Skye. We loved every minute of it. And we were even there for... More

A wonderful place to stay. My daughter and I felt at home in no time, and Julie and Steve went out of their way to make our stay perfect. The setting is beautiful, and Carter's Rest is ideally placed for exploring the north-west of Skye, a truly beautiful island. The breakfasts were always excellent. The room was attractive, a good...

Lovely, remote guesthouse in idyllic setting. We stayed here as we were having dinner at The Three Chimneys restaurant. Julie organised a taxi for us (£27 return, not bad!). We didn't stay long enough to explore the area around Glendale but our evening at Carter's rest was very enjoyable and breakfast the next day was superb. Directions on the information... More

we spent three nights at Carters Rest to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Steve and Julie are wonderful hosts. Spacious and comfortable room and a lovely lounge. A beautiful location for exploring the remoter parts of Skye and ideal if you wish to treat yourself to an evening out at The Three Chimneys. Many thanks for a memorable visit. Look forward... More
