We stayed here by chance after getting stranded by sound of harris ferry cancellation. Knocked on door unanounced and welcomed in with offers of tea while Pete checked with his wife Val and other B&B owners where our bed would be! So pleased after that when they offered us lodging. Setting, house and room was terrific. They even booked us... More

We stayed at Carminish House B&B as a couple in September 2016. Pete & Val could not have been better hosts and have made us feel more welcome! Within minutes of arriving we were given some of Val's legendary lemon drizzle cake and a lovely mug of tea and we were thoroughly spoilt for the whole of our stay! Comfortable... More

A very warm welcome with tea and cakes, a good introduction to a very lovely house. Good sized bedrooms, comfortable beds with fine linen. Good sized bathroom. Comfortable guest lounge with home made cakes in the afternoon. On leaving we were given cakes for our journey. The breakfast table was beautifully laid and the breakfast was excellent with lots of... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Val and Pete couldn't be more helpful and friendly - even booking our meals in the evening locally. And the breakfasts were lovely - lots of choice, not just the full Scottish (although we did have that). We were really sad to leave.

Stopped here for one night on our tour of the Hebrides and Pete and Val were like friends we've known for years. After a long trip we sat up having coffee and homemade cake! Would definitely visit again. Home from home!

The previous reviews say it all, but I'm going to say it all again. Val and Pete were fantastic hosts. They were very welcoming and extremely helpful with offering advice about local attractions and eating options. They even advised us by email to book a restaurant for Sunday night as most places are closed. The outcome was that they ended... More

My wife and I were very fortunate to benefit from a cancellation here and stayed for two nights during the second week in July. From the outset, Val and Pete were unconditionally welcoming and we were made to feel 'at home' in their beautiful home. Our room (Lapwing) which was spotless and comfortable faced the front of the house and,... More

By far the nicest host we encountered on our six week tour of Scotland. Val and Pete were so friendly and helpful. We even got a fresh baked brownie and piece of orange cake upon arrival! Val loves to cook and it shows in the quality of the breakfast we received. The omelete was awesome! Our room was very comfortable,... More

Many other reviews use superlatives for this special B & B. We can only agree. This home-from-home, surpassed all our expectations, and we would not consider staying anywhere else in Harris. The house's location is spectacular, and Pete and Val, our hosts, were the most welcoming and friendly couple you could ever meet. Huge thanks for everything - especially the... More

Never, never let a poor weather forecast, or the mileage getting there, deter you from making it to Harris. An absolutely beautiful island with staggering mountains, lonely moors for perfect walking and divine beaches that have to be up there with the best in the world. And this B&B is perfectly located on the west coast of South Harris -... More
