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

Val and Peter are excellent hosts, tea and cake on arrival and beautiful bedroom with views over the loch with the possibility of seeing otters. Nothing too much trouble and such an extensive breakfast menu to set you up for the day. Lovely lounge with picture window to view the scenery.

If you visit Harris you should definitely visit Carminish House as it is simply the best B&B in the whole area. Val and Pete provide a warm immaculate home from home. They provide delicious cake and a hot drink when you arrive, and are happy to offer suggestions for your dinner reservation. After a wonderful nights sleep in any of... More

There are no superlatives to justify this bed & breakfast house. As mentioned in other reviews we were greeted on arrival by Val with tea and coffee and lemon drizzle cake. The house itself is outstanding, overlooking the Sound of Harris with spectacular views over the water. Our bedroom was beautiful, again with great views. Val recommended the Anchorage restaurant...
