Well, I was happy that my friend had foudn Murray House because I wanted a spot close to the church which I would be attending. There is nothing special about this place, but it was warm and pleasant. The room was small and not particularly quiet. The owner did kindly make sure I had a VERY early morning taxi to... More

Murray House had everything I wanted for my stay in Thurso. It was commendably clean, comfortable, and quiet – better than some expensive multi-star hotels that I’ve stayed in. It was also conveniently located – easy to find, close to all the facilities in the town, and with free parking available. Perhaps most importantly, the proprietors were every bit as... More

One good facility was that you could take a carry out into the... More

This was one of the nicest guest houses we stayed during our road trip to Scotland. Family room on top floor is very cosy and modern. Breakfast is good. And lovely lady who runs the house really made the atmosphere.

I have long dreamed of staying at a Scottish B&B, and our stay in Thurso did not disappoint. Murray House has much to recommend it. Our family happily occupied the top floor rooms for three nights in August, 2014. The en-suite bedrooms were clean, comfortable and very modern. The beds were the best we experienced during our two-week stay in... More

Murray House is a perfect location for exploring the northern tip of Scotland and Orkney. Angela and Stephen are friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Immediately on arrival Stephen insisted on carrying our suit cases upstairs. Angela provided a hearty breakfast each morning and helped us plan our day. Murray house is close to Thurso centre and we spent our first... More

Both Angela and Stephen were friendly and warmly welcoming and obviously proud of their home - and why not? We were in Room 4 with our 8 year old son and Angela showed us up to our well-appointed room up on the 2nd floor under the eaves. From our Velux window we were able to watch the antics of a... More
