Carter’s Rest on Skye is owned and run by Julie and Steve Carter.
We had been dreaming of running a small guesthouse in Scotland for a number of years. In 2009, Julie quit her job in marketing and began working for a four-star hotel in the Lake District. The following year Stephen took voluntary redundancy from his job in teaching. We put our house on the market and it sold in five hours! Wasting no time we went searching for a business. We spent long hours travelling up and down to Scotland viewing lots of properties for sale.
When Carter’s Rest became available we wondered if destiny was perhaps a little too ironic given the fact that Carter is Stephen’s surname and Skye has been a favourite holiday destination for many years. The warmth of the people, together with the beautiful scenery and its history, made it the perfect location for our new venture. We feel very lucky to have found this little gem in Milovaig on the west coast of Skye.
