We have just had our second visit to Pennyland House in Thurso. Raymond and Carol who own Pennyland, provide excellent accommodate, which is immaculately clean and beautifully appointed. The breakfast is second to none, with the best black pudding ever. Would recommend the Pennyland to anyone, looking for a warm welcome, friendly faces, fab food and lovely accommodation. Looking forward... More

Wonderful place overlooking the ocean and waves. Clean, spacious rooms, lovingly prepared breakfast, and kind and attentive hosts. Plenty of parking on site. Short walk to pubs and restaurants in central Thurso and a quick drive from incredible coastal scenery and beaches. This is really a special B&B and I'd definitely stay here again.

Look no further than Pennyland House for the best B & B in the area. OK, so my wife and I don't stay anywhere else when we're in Thurso! Why would we, when Raymond and Carol (not forgetting Alison) provide the warmest of welcomes, wonderful rooms, a sumptuous freshly-cooked Scottish breakfast (make sure you order the delicious black pudding) and,...

We stayed with Carol and Raymond for 1 night in the Carnoustie Room (great sea view). I am not one who is prone to eulogising, but on this occasion I must make an exception. I would simply say that quality is evident in every aspect of Pennyland - from telephone and e-mail communication, the reception, the building, internal and extenal,... More

Carol and Ray have taken fantastic care of this 1770 ish home. Ray met us at the door and took us up to our room. Our room (St Andrews) was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was huge, even had a soaking tub. Bed and bedding was comfortable. I had a little trouble with the Wifi but that could have... More

We were made to feel so welcome and as others have said nothing was too much trouble. Alison even ironed my husband's shirt for a wedding and Carol offered us the loan of accessories - including a kilt (not needed!). Carol also spent time with us studying the map and as a result we enjoyed lovely walks with unexpectedly spectacular... More

On a last minute rail trip to Thurso we were lucky to get a cancellation. What a find! This is an excellent bed and breakfast establishment run by extremely pleasant and friendly hosts. Our room, Dornoch, was perfect with lovely views over the Pentland Firth to the Orkney Isles. Breakfast was freshly cooked and most satisfying. This is a wonderful... More

Stayed here earlier this week. This place is fabulous and one of the best B and B's we have ever stayed in, and we would definitely stay again. The owners are friendly, knowledgable, and nothing is too much trouble for them. The accommodation is first class and the views wonderful. If going to Thurso area this should be top of... More

We were given the Turnbury Suite on the ground floor which was splendid. Lovely and warm and a good size room with en suite en suite facilities. A cracking breakfast to see us on our way to Orkney.
