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

Stayed here with the wife for 2 nights in September 2013. In Dornoch for a wedding in the Highlands. The B&B is in a great location being 5 minutes walk from the centre of Dornoch. Isla and Hugh are very welcoming hosts and cannot do enough for you. Breakfast is absolutely fantastic, top quality ingredients from start to finish. We... More

We were in Dornoch for an overnight and were lucky enough to book in to Highfield House. It was excellent in every way and we will certainly stay here again next time we are in the area. Our hosts were very attentive and the rooms very comfortable and clean with lovely bedding and a good sized bathroom. Lots of little... More

We have stayed in 4* hotels round the workld which are not as welcoming or comfortable as Highfield House. Even the smaller rooms are furnished with every care and consideration. The breakfasts are excellent and the beds are bliss

Isla and Hugh run a first class establishment. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and the best breakfast you could hope for. Highfield was recommended to us by friends and we were delighted. Isla and Hugh make you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. There is no pool or fitness centre but I couldn't clear the ratings. No... More

I have just come back from a short stay in Dornoch. I went with my Mother and my two teenage daughters and we stayed at Highfield House B & B. Take my word for it and DO trust Trip Advisor, this place is an absolute gem. Isla and Hugh made us so welcome, the furnishings are gorgeous, the comfort of... More

Stayed at Highfield B+B as part of a golf break around Dornoch. Isla and Hugh are great hosts, couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. The whole house is furnished to a very high standard, the bedrooms are very comfortable and the choice at breakfast is simply the best I've ever had at a B+B. And Isla's recommendation for dinner nearby... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while golfing in the area. The accommodation and food are first class with lots of extra touches. The hosts Isla and Hugh cannot be more helpful. The whole place is beautifully decorated and spotless. There is a lovely summer house in the garden too for guests to use and plenty space inside to sit and... More

This is undoubtedly the best B&B that we have ever experienced and sets the bar high for all others to attain. Isla and Hugh are excellent hosts - the rooms are first rate and always spotlessly clean with lovely bedlinen and comfy beds. Breakfasts are superb and cooked to order with porridge and haddock particular highlights! I cannot recommend this... More

It seems like the proprietors Isla and Hugh upped the ante again, if that's possible, at their B&B. They really set the bar for me on B&B in Scotland and any other place we stay becomes a disappointment. It's not so much the I infrastructure but the care they take in the detail. The rooms are always immaculate with freshly... More
