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. We arrived to a warm welcome, spectacular views and wonderful rooms! The breakfasts were heavenly and watching the sheep frolicking outside our window just... More

It was very obvious that the hosts had paid attention to even the smallest details to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay (everything from own-made juice to providing tablets and q-tips in the room), it was simply perfect. Lovely hosts that were very nice and gave us good info about Skye, fantastic breakfast, comfortable rooms and the lovely view that... More

This being our 7th or 8th visit to Carter's Rest speaks volumes. Located on the western coast of Skye with fantastic views across to the Inner Hebrides the place has everything. The rooms are well equipped with WiFi ,TV, dvd etc.Spotlessly clean and the finer details taken care of... Your hosts Steve and Julie are warm and friendly and nothing... More
