We stayed one night (September 2013) in a quite large room, with twin beds. Unfortunately, the room was a little worn and the beds uncomfortable. On the positive, the hosts Tina and Brian were very friendly as were other guests. We had a very good dinner at the Northern Sands Hotel, just a short drive. Next morning we had a... More

The location is great just on top of the cliff, and there is an incredible view on the sea. The bedroom was ok, it's not luxury, it's a little bit old and dusty but it's convenient for one or two nights. Brian and Tina are welcoming and helpful, we could even park our motorbike in their garage (that was luxury... More

Just spent one night here on our way to John o groats, to meet our son and his buddies after their end to end charity ride. This little place was as quirky as you can get, but spotlessly clean and comfortable. Brian and Tina are so welcoming, and the views from the back of the property are amazing. There's a... More

We just stayed one night on our way to Orkney and had a very enjoyable stay. We had a good night's sleep - which is what you pay for in a B&B - in what I can only describe as an unusual room. Yes - the shower cublicle and washbasin are in the room - at one end and screened... More

I stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms was small and basic but clean and tidy, having all I would need for my stay. I would haply stay there again. There is parking to the side of the B&B and they will happily store things for you while you go exploring. I left my motorbike panniers with them during my... More

Just a lovely place in countryside: on the coast you can see seals and puffins. The Dunnet Head Lighthouse sits about three miles to north and The Castle of Mey about eight miles to east. The place is clean and silent, the rooms are homelike and the keepers Tina and Brian are helpful and kind. I warmly recommend.

Stayed 2 nights, and were treated to all types of weather, baking sun, gloom, wind, fog, and torrential rain, but loved it. Brian and Tina, our hosts were lovely. Couldn't do enough for us, lots of advice available as they previously ran an educational trust for the area. The B&B room was quirky and the twin beds were fine to... More

Stayed here July 2012 with the dog. The place is a bit old fashioned and dated looking inside, but very warm and very comfortable. Plenty of room to sleep 4 people comfortably and both bedrooms have En Suite. Brian and Tina who run the place are very friendly and helpful. Everything you would need for your stay is here, Fridge,... More

The bed was extremely uncomfortable, bed springs digging in to our ribs on both sides of the bed. It meant very little sleep. The breakfast wasn't enjoyable and overall it was a poor experience. We payed extra to avoid the 'small double room' and we still could only just fit around the bed. Spend a little more money and stay... More
