    The warm hosts make you feel welcome. The rooms are very nice and there are a lot of details in the B&B that make you feel special. The location is outside of the big tourist attractions which was for us a benefit. The breakfast is wonderful but...

    Better breakfast than in luxury hotels in London. I don't know if there was something in the air that was making everything more tasty or exceptional cooking skills but I was grateful for the end result.

Simone and Jonathan
Carters Rest is located in Milovaig on the most westerly coast of Skye - providing the most spectacular views and sunsets. We overlook the Little Minch and Loch Pooltiel where seals bask on the rocks with the occasional sighting of dolphins, basking sharks and minke whales. Our dining room boasts stunning views of the highest cliffs on Skye with a backdrop of the Isle of Harris which is an island located in the Outer Hebrides.
Your stay is our pleasure. Whatever we can help you with, you only have to ask, bookings, where to go what to see and what to wear. (We have 4 seasons in one day) Come and relax in our very spacious lounge, enjoy the views of The Little Minch. Simone and Jonathan welcome you to our guesthouse.
The immediate area is itself a place of interest and is particularly rich in plant and wildlife. Dolphins, whales, basking sharks, seals and sea otters can be seen together with birds of prey and a wide range of indigenous and visiting birds. Information on salmon, trout and sea fishing is available and in some cases, bookings for boats can be made. The stunning scenery makes it an ideal location for numerous walks, we're very close to Neist Point lighthouse and the Three Chimneys restaurant is only a 10 minute drive from here. Local walks to Neist Point, Ramasaig and along the Cliff tops to Waterstein Head. Orbost Beach, McLeod's Maidens, McLeod's Tables, The Two Churches in Dunvegan, Coral Beach are all local walks and easily accessible in 10-20 minutes. The Dunvegan Castle and its well laid out gardens, Talisker Distillery, The Fairy pools and Glenbrittle are all within easy reach. The Quirang and Old Man of Storr & Rubha Hunish make for an excellent days outing. The scenery is always spectacular and back in the evening for one of Skye's Sunsets completes the day.
