We found this by chance and we are so lucky we did! We were first timers to Scotland and stumbled through Thurso on our way to the unknown and Raymond and Carol were absolutely amazing! It was like having our own personal travel agents. Over breakfast we were talking to Raymond about the area and he printed a map and... More

An elegant, comfortable home away from home. Very spacious rooms and gorgeous bath. A fresh breakfast of your choice is served in the morning. A collection of books and DVD's are available for entertainment. Although dinner is not served on site, there are places within walking distance or just a short drive away.

I was recommended this B&B by one of my colleagues - it is one of the best establishments I have stayed in anywhere in the world. As a B&B, they don't serve evening meals but they do allow you to take in carryout food to eat in their dining room. Home from home indeed.

Having read the reviews I was a bit wary that they couldn't be true but they are, this must be one of the friendliest hotels in the UK. I was met by Carol and greeted like an old friend. Unfortunately my train was late and the wifi and mobile reception on the train wasn't working so I couldn't let them... More

We stayed here in September for only one night. Wished we could of stayed longer. The hosts were charming and made us very welcome. We were lucky to have a week of glorious sunshine, which helped to make our holiday a very memorable one. This is an idea place to stay for planning a trip to the Orkney's which we... More

I had wanted to stay here for a long time having read reviews. Fortunately they weren't fully booked. The attention to detail is amazing. The quality of our stay easily outmatched large hotels we have stayed in in the past. We booked for one night but on arrival and having seen our room immediately booked for another night. Carol and... More

I can't praise the Pennyland House B & B enough, though the details have been well described by other reviewers. Carol and Raymond were away but left Alison and Eleanor in charge. They were absolutely wonderful and we want to return as soon as the opportunity presents. This is more than just a business. It's also a passion and as... More

We stayed 2 x nights from 16 September at this wonderful B&B. Hosts Carol and Raymond were simply charming as they welcomed us in their home. The room was very spacious, spotlessly clean and the bed very comfy. The breakfasts were fresh, filling and beautifully presented. With out any fuss Carol arranged our day trip to the Orkney's and on... More

We stayed one night Oct 17 - and a lazy morning - in this marvellously refurbished old building. No mod cons missing - great attention to detail in both the rooms and service is provided by Carol and Raymond, our hosts. Sole complaint was that the great views across the Pentland Firth did not include the Norhtern Lights. This time.

My wife and I along with another couple were visiting Thurso for an overnight and chose Pennyland House B&B to stay in on the 11th of October. We were advised that the owners were going to be away for the weekend and it would be one of their family who would look after us. We were slightly concerned that it... More
