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

Stayed just one night with friends and had very comfortable rooms - room 1 is the largest room and looks out over the countryside (as does room 2). Very clean and good beds. The breakfast was excellent with fruit, cereal, bread, cheese and a good selection of cooked including haddock, salmon and kipper. Isla and Hugh were very friendly and.... More

We stayed at Highfiield for one night and highly recommend it for the good humour and warmth of the hosts, the sheer luxury of the rooms and the varied and delicious choices for breakfast. The weather was uncooperative but the luxury of our accommodation made up for it! Hugh and Isla were very helpful in recommending places to visit on... More

I stayed at Highfield House for a few weeks because I was working in the area. Isla and Hugh were truly wonderful and you can see the pride that they take in their business. Every room is furnished to a high standard and everything is spotless. The linen makes you feel spoilt. The breakfast was fantastic, with a wide choice... More

Really nice B&B! My husband and I stayed here for one night in February 2014 - we were the only guests there but the place was lovely. Big, clean, comfortable room - the jacuzzi bath didn't work but apart from that we couldn't fault it. Beautiful house, tasty breakfast and friendly host - Isla even printed off our boarding passes...

Although the small village of Dornoch is a bit north of the more well-known areas of Scotland, it is worth the extra effort. And to top it off, Highfield House is about as wonderful as a B&B experience should be. Isla and Hugh are welcoming hosts, loaded with good idea of what to see and do in the area. They... More

My partner and I stayed with Isla and Hugh during a 'property hunting' trip to the area. Highfield House is conveniently located for Dornoch and we were able to walk to the recommended restaurant for dinner. The room was very clean, spacious and extremely well furnished with a zip and link bed, good quality linen and towels; a lot of... More
