Lovely cottage in a super quiet location. A beautiful sea-side walk into Dornoch starts just down the road. Steve and Esther are a wonderful couple and what with the dogs, happy hens supplying fresh eggs and home made jams (the gooseberry is awesome) made from fruits grown in the gorgeous garden, it's all perfect. Their garden is just fantastic. So... More

If anyone is ever travelling to the North East of Scotland, the Sutherland area, this is the place to stay. There is only one double room, but not only do you have a bedroom with en-suite, there is also a beautiful lounge for your own private use. It's truly a home from home. Esther and Steve are wonderful. The bedroom... More

A warm welcome, a beautiful cottage, fantastic garden. Homemade marmelade, great cooked breakfast. The room was tidy and cosy, the interieur was absolutely gorgeous. We loved our stay at this B&B, and we will definetely come back.

This review is long overdue! I had the privilege of staying at the Bumblee Cottage for one night in July of 2010 (this site does not allow for previous years' dates). The hosts, Steve and Esther were so kind and their hospitality so refreshing. Esther and I discovered we had many things in common. She knew I'd been travelling for... More

Welcoming and friendly from the first enquiry, Esther and Steve could not have done more to make us feel more welcome. Having only one double bedroom and your own sitting room, one of the joys here, is that quite literally, you have the place to yourselves. The bed was very comfy and the bath very deep with lashings of hot... More

I don't understand all the splendid reviews, but then maybe the owners are different when you are actually there. I personally have enough after emailing and phoning with them. Last year, when planning a trip to Scotland, I already had a short email contact and asked a few questions. All the other places I phoned or mailed answered back in... More

Steve and Esther offer only on en suite bedroom with a separate sitting room. You will be their only guest. But they also offer the warmest of environments--like you are close friends in for a visit. Plus a wonderful breakfast with eggs from their hens, jams from their garden/kitchen and the best bacon, coffee, and yoghurt. Did I mention "garden".... More

My wife and I spent one night in late August 2012 at the Bumblebee Cottage. We had a lovely en-suite room adjacent to a separate common room. The Cottage is a little off the beaten path (so make sue you have good directions) but it's very comfortable and quiet. It also has an large garden to wander around in. Breakfast... More
