Tessa was warm, friendly and very welcoming. She went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and delicious cooked breakfast! What more could you want? Location was excellent for exploring Skye, and the local pub had great food! Highly recommended!!
Very comfortable and clean accommodation with very welcoming hosts, Tessa & Tom. Nice to have a lounge room to relax in at the end of the day. Good location for exploring the rest of Skye. Close to the Talisker distillery. Good food at the Olde Inn down the road.
We had such a great stay with Tessa and her sweet beautiful family! Tessa is a wonderful hostess, so cheerful and upbeat. The room was lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. (best Scottish bacon we've ever had!) When we arrived,Tessa and her family were getting ready for a Ceilidh (a traditional community social gathering with Gaelic music and dance) and we were graciously invited to come along. What fun we had! We also really enjoyed The Old Inn Pub, in Carbost (also their family establishment) with live music and the most delicious fresh food and fun atmosphere. Highly recommended. We loved it so much we had supper there every night! Our experiences staying in Tessa's home were some of the great highlights of our trip!
Wir waren 4 Tage auf Skye und haben uns bei Tessa sehr wohl gefühlt. Tessa und ihre Familie sind sehr freundlich, offen, unkompliziert und hilfsbereit. Das Zimmer ist richtig gemütlich und durch das zusätzliche Wohnzimmer, das wir allein benutzen konnten, ausgesprochen geräumig. Hier haben wir auch gefrühstückt - wozu wir uns aussuchen konnten, was wir gerne essen. Auch das Bad ist groß und gut ausgestattet. Eine sehr nette Geste fanden wir Mineralwasser, Wein und Kekse, die in der Tee-Ecke für uns bereitstanden - man fühlt sich gleich willkommen. Zum Abendessen ins Pub sind es ca. 3 km, die man aber gut zu Fuß gehen kann. Ein wirklich empfehlenswertes B&B!
We had a great stay in Carbost with Tessa and Tom. Breakfast was delicious. Carbost is a great place to stay and explore the island of Skye. The Old Inn is a 20min walk away and has every type of Talisker on the rail. The living room was an added bonus, giving us lots of space to relax in the evenings.
Great location if you are looking for something outside of a town or village and away from tour busses and tourist shops. Loch Harport is across the street, the Cuillins are close, Carbost (where you will find the Talisker distillery, the Old Inn, and the Oyster Shed) is a 30 min walk. In addition to the bedroom, we had a separate private living room. Tessa was a very good host. Breakfast was excellent. We enjoyed our stay very much.

About the Host, Tessa
I am born and bred on Skye. I moved away for a while then returned with my family as I wanted them to have the same childhood I had, happy and lots of freedom.
My parents moved here 37 years old buying a croft house in the village which they turned int a successful business The Old Inn who my brother now owns. The pub is renowned for good food and great live music.
Skye is the most beautiful place even more so the older I get...I'm sure you won't be disappointed!
