When you look at Durness on Google it looks a little bland. Nothing could be further from the truth it is wonderful. Aiden House has the prime position in the village. Superb accommodation and memorable breakfast.You really don't have to eat for the rest of the day. Alexandra is everything you want in a host welcoming, knowledgeable and entertaining. Dinner...

We stayed here for 1 night but wish it was for longer! Alexandra and Kenny were fantastic hosts with so much knowledge about the area which was refreshing as so many place just have leaflets. We will most defiantly be back!! A must to visit.

On our self-driving tour of Scotland we have enjoyed an array of seven different rooms in Bed & Breakfast style lodgings. They were all excellent and top-rated, and all were booked for us by Absolute Escapes. We especially enjoyed our kind hostess and our chat with other guests over breakfast, here. As city dwellers, we especially enjoyed the sound effects... More

We had a nice view of the coast and fields from our room. The bedroom and bathroom were a good size and comfortably furnished, with a good bed. Breakfast was tasty and the portions... More

Beautiful house. The Room was clean and furnished with taste... Amazing view!!! Great hospitality. Alejandra is very nice, she suggested us a different road down to Lochinver so we could appreciate a stunning beach (Achmelvich). She also gave us info about the trip to Cape Wrath (not to be missed) . Another amazing beach was in Durness, closed to the... More

The room was very comfortable, with plenty of space and a lovely ensuite and great views of the beach! Breakfast was enormous... More

Would certainly recommend this for anyone travelling... More

This excellent B & B offers top quality accommodation, and is beautifully located with excellent views. A hearty full Scottish breakfast is part of the package. The owners are very friendly and eager to assist their guests. We shall be returning for a longer stay.
