I wasnt sure about staying in a B&B but this one is loads nicer than all the hotels in Thurso by far! I would recommend it to anyone. Really nicely decorated with really friendly owners and top quality facilities and an amazing view on your doorstep

We booked in for two nights but stayed three in this very high class establishment overlooking Thurso Bay and Dunnett Head. The rooms we had were large and luxurious, everyone working there was friendly and helpful and the only problem with the breakfasts was that we ate too much. I really can't imagine staying anywhere else in Thurso in the... More

Really no serious complaints here at all. This is a long review only for the courtesy of highlighting minor issues. We had an exceptionally large bedroom and a very large bathroom! We were treated to potato scones as an option for our cooked breakfast. I was embarrassed by a minor bit of confusion over our return after 8 pm when... More

After a fantastic drive along the rugged coast from Inverness, we were made very welcome by Carol and Raymond at Pennyland. It is a very comfortable and well-appointed B&B with great views across to the ocean and surrounds. The breakfast was also very enjoyable - you will enjoy the size of the tea cups. If you are a golfer, allow... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights' stay in Thurso. Carol and Raymond are delightful hosts, warm and welcoming. The house is spotlessly clean and situated within easy walking distance of eateries for evening meals. Breakfasts were excellent, with a choice of times available to enable the hosts to give their guests individual attention. Our room at the top of the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Pennyland House B&B in June of 2015 for two evenings. What a fabulous choice we made! As soon as we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by Raymond, who took the time to share a detailed map of area sights, recommendations, timings, etc. It was most helpful, and we followed the route he had...

Raymond and Carol have put a lot of time and thought into renovating the historic house into a comfortable, attractive, inviting B & B. The location is great for touring the area and getting to the Orkneys. Raymond gives his guests maps with tours marked and explained. All the guests get a customized itinerary and the small sample we observed... More
