Everything about our stay was perfect, we stayed in the self catering apartment, the accommodation was of a high standard with very comfortable beds and bedding. The bathroom was large and lovely toiletries were provided, bath sheets, hand towels and face cloths were pure white, thick...

We stayed here for the night and loved the place. Julie and Ste are great people and the rooms are spacious and have everything in them that you need. We had a big lunch before we got there and we had brought cheese and bread with us and we were provided with plates and a board for dinner which was...

After a long trip trough the rainy Highlands and at least a 9 mi Single Road Track, we've arrived at the best place to stay at Skye. The wonderful B&B of Julie and Steve. Wonderful rooms and a extra-ordinary breakfast in the fantastic landscape of western Skye.

Just got back from Scotland and had to post what a special place Carters Rest Guesthouse is. We rented the apartment style suite with large kitchen / living room with separate bedroom and large bath. The living room has a couch that converts to a bed and our 23 year old daughter said it was the best bed she had...

Carter's was everything we could've dreamed of and more. Gorgeous views, house off the beaten path but worth every extra mile. The Carter's provided everything; toiletries, coffee, tea, still and sparkling water, bathrobes (my favorite!) and more were given to us in the room. We brought dinner in but it needed to be put in the oven so they warmed...

Where to even start about our stay. Absolutely loved this B&B, it was well worth the money. The Carter's were lovely hosts, and the view that you get eating breakfast is second to none in this world. Our pictures from breakfast look like a wallpaper you would put on your computer, and that's just the start. It is a little...

All the good things previous reviewers have said are true. I can't add more except that I wish we have stayed longer to explore the walks more and enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful location. The hosts are fantastic and suggested a nearby attraction in view of our long drive back to Edinburgh. It just shows their hospitality...

This is exactly what we were looking for in skye. The location is beautiful and quiet. Easy to get to the different hikes we wanted to do around the island. The hosts we great! We needed to check in late and do laundry and julie and steve were extremely obliging. The rooms are beautiful as well. Everything was perfect.

My partner and I had an amazing few days at this B+B. The hosts were so lovely and sweet (and always wanted to make more food at breakfast in case we were hungry haha). The view from the house is absolutely breath-taking. Since it is in such a lovely untouched area, restaurants are somewhat far to get to- however, the...

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...
