I stayed at Highfield House for 3 nights this week. The house and grounds are very well kept and the owners are quite friendly and helpful. My room was as comfortable as I could ask for and TV and Internet worked well. I was up early for golf, but they had breakfast for me before the "official" start time so... More

We stayed at Highfield House for 2 nights and had a very comfortable room with small shower room en suite. The property is a lovely old house which has been very tastefully decorated to a high standard. It is only 5 mins walk into Dornoch. We had a warm welcome and excellent breakfast with good choice and quality.

I just completed my third stay at the Highfield House. The home is beautiful, comfortable and absolutely spotless!. I looked forward to each morning when I could enjoy the wonderful breakfast! Isla and Hugh are such fabulous hosts! They are just wonderful, interesting people! I first came to Highfield House as a guest; I now come as a friend!

All of us throughly enjoyed our stay at the Highfield House. The house is in a perfect location within easy walking distance to the town and golf course. Isla was fantastic and so helpful in booking restaurant reservations and calling a taxi. The rooms are lovely, super clean and spacious. Breakfast was delightful both mornings. Highly recommend the Highfield House.... More

We stayed here for 1 night and wished we had booked for more. Isla couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The whole house is beautiful and our room was stunning. Furniture and linen was of the highest quality. Breakfast was excellent and we couldn't have eaten another bite. We were so sorry to leave and will return. Would recommend... More

I stayed here for one evening for a friends wedding. Wish I could have stayed another night. One of the best B&Bs I've stayed in! As we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by the friendly owner who welcomed us into their home. We were shown our rooms which were absolutely gorgeous. Couldn't fault them one bit. Extremely clean... More

Stayed here during a family funeral in Dornoch, Isla & Hugh were spectacular. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always friendly and welcoming. The rooms are wonderfully spacious with great views of the surroundings and every amenity you could want. Thank you for a great stay and I look forward to being back in the near future.

Lovely room with a massive bed, lots of special touches like lovely Scottish toiletries, great tea tray with drinks and snacks. Felt more like a boutique hotel in terms of quality of furnishing and attention to detail. Lovely hosts were friendly and helpful. Perfect night's sleep (and I am a bad sleeper with a dodgy back so it's unusual for... More

My husband and I stayed at Highfield House a few weeks ago and we loved every minute. Beautiful rooms, immaculately clean with THE most comfortable king size beds and luxury bedding.The breakfasts are delicious. Locally sourced ingredients and all cooked to order. The best bit about staying at Highfield House is the exceptional service you get from Isla and Hugh.... More

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.
