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

My wife and I stayed for a night towards the end of our trip around the Highlands, but had to deal with our car breaking down as we arrived in Thurso. Raymond, his wife and sister could not have been more helpful, some of the most genuinely kind and accommodating people we've ever met - not only helping us arrange... More

We only stayed one night and only had a few hours there because we arrived at 9:30 p.m. and had to catch the ferry for Stromness early the next morning, and yet our stay at Pennyland House ranked among my favorite B&B experiences ever. The room was beautiful, with a view of the sunset over the water (and sheep grazing... More

Lots has already been said about Pennyland that all it leaves me to say is that if you are staying in Thurso or the surrounding area stay here. The rooms are great and the breakfasts are even better and you cant get closer to the ferry terminal for a trip to Orkney. Whats not to like?

We stayed two nights at this lovely B&B, where nothing is too much trouble. The house is beautiful and the standard of service is exceptional, including a breakfast that will keep you going until supper! The hosts are friendly and full of information about the local area. We had a view from our window of the most northerly point of... More
