Beautiful home with wonderful hosts and a delish breakfast - highly recommend the gluten free pancakes. The walk to the water takes about 20 minutes and is breathtaking. Would highly recommend staying here. The bed in the Seagulls Nest is sooooooo comfy. We didn't even want to leave our little home here because it is so warm, comfortable,clean and soothing.... More

Beautiful location (although quite a long distance from evening eating establishments), very large rooms, splendid breakfasts and welcoming hosts. Hard to find fault with this establishment, although it is currently up for sale.

Anything we add feels like gilding a lily. You should stay here. The Carters are charming, helpful hosts: The very reason you stay at a B & B. The Guesthouse is in a lovely rural area, with sheep and shore nearby. The rooms are new and clean, the morning meals are filling and delicious. Excellent wifi connection--connecting you to the...

Everything was great! Fantastic location, great rooms and lovely hosts. Julie and Steve went above and beyond to address our needs. It feels like your own home with a much better view! Breakfast is great as well.Thanks for everything. Highly recommended.

We had a night at Carter's rest over Easter, the start of the tourist season for the B&B. What a wonderful place. We should have stayed longer. The hosts Steve and Julie are lovely, so very personable and friendly, proper hosts and make the best full Scottish you could ever hope to have. Immaculate spacious rooms, a gorgeous remote rural...

My mom, daughter and I stayed and had the apartment. it was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for 3 adult women. The view was amazing! Even though it was a little remote - a couple of miles from the lighthouse, it was well worth it. There are plenty are restaurants close by and there is a kitchen.... More

We loved our 2 nights at Carter's Rest. All the glowing reviews are accurate and there is genuinely nothing I can add to improve them. I can't think of anything that could be done to better Steve and Julie's offering. The room was perfect, the facilities were comprehensive, and the breakfasts were lovely. We've always wanted to eat at the... More

There is a lot of B&B competition in Skye, making it hard to choose what you hope will be the "perfect" place. But after a wonderful 5 night stay at Carters Rest, I know we made the right decision, and our stay here was perfection. B&B hosts will totally make or break your visit, and Julie and Steve were the... More

Lovely little B&B situated in a remote location 20 minutes from Dunvegan. Julie and Steve were great hosts with good local knowledge, helpful with suggested walks and other recommendations based on the changeable Skye weather. A fridge in the room was a useful addition and nicely filled with a few complimentary drinks. A good choice for breakfast including homemade granola... More

Our stay at Carters Rest Guesthouse was absolutely wonderful! Julie and Steve make you feel like a part of the family as soon as you arrive and I was sad to say goodbye when we left.
