Isla (& Hugh) set the standard against which all other B&Bs are judged and it is rare that any in our experience comes anywhere near. Highfield is simply first class in all respects - the breakfasts are superb, the rooms delightful and the hospitality is a non pareil. I cannot recommend this establishment too highly.

I stay here every year!! The hosts, Hugh and Isla, are most graceful and welcoming, making you feel right at home. It's worth staying there just to have Isla's full Scottish breakfasts. You won't find better anywhere in Scotland. The rooms are always fresh and clean and airy. Lots of light everywhere. Very close to downtown--five minute walk-- and Hugh... More

We stayed three nights late into the Autumn and had a wonderful, relaxing and luxurious time. The house is beautiful, totally comfortable and everything has been very carefully considered to make everyone's stay perfect. The beds, pillows and sheets are top top quality. The showers have great pressure and get properly hot and cold...much needed after hiking, golf etc. The... More

A perfect B&B starting with the hosts, the room with a beautiful view and the best breakfast! Isla made reservations for us at the Royal Dornoch Golf Club which was a special treat. Highly recommend and we will return!

From the moment you ring the doorbell at Highfield House, you know you're in for a treat. We were met by Hugh who gave us a splendidly warm welcome, before being introduced to the lovely Isla. She showed us to our room - a large, bright front-facing room with view over towards the Dornoch Firth. The size of this bedroom... More

My husband and I stayed here one night while golfing at Royal Dornoch and we were so happy with our room. The king bed was amazingly comfortable, the linens and decorations very upscale and tasteful, the bathroom and shower were excellent, and the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Isla and Hugh were welcoming, pleasant, and helpful and we would be... More

Recent experiences have made us treat really positive reviews with some scepticism. However, the Highfield House really is outstanding. We spent two nights here in August when touring the Highlands. Room 1 was fantastic, so spacious and tastefully decorated, with great views and lots additional touches. Hugh and Isla were the perfect hosts. If we return to this area we... More

This is a lovely house with lovely hosts who will look after you very well. The room we had was gorgeous, comfy bed and nice en suite, lots of thoughtful touches in the room, and the added benefit of a lounge to sit in. The breakfast was superb, lots of choices and plenty of freshly cooked food. It's an easy... More

First off, this was the first time I had stayed in B & B's as I had a, as it turned out warped, view that they were all overloaded with tartan and dead animals hanging on the wall. How wrong I was! Every house we visited were out of this world and I am now a convert! Highfield house was... More

My husband and I had a two-night stay at Highfield close to the Easter weekend. I would recommend this guest house wholeheartedly for the wonderful customer service, cleanliness, and a friendly and helpful approach throughout. Our room was pleasant and very well equipped for a comfortable stay, and had free wi-fi. The location is good on a quiet street with... More
