We were pleasantly surprised by Aidan house. We didnt expect too much given its remote location and we didn't realise how very beautiful Durness is. But from the moment we arrived we were charmed. The house has really lovely views from every window and our room was no exception. We had views across the fields to the sea in two... More

Warm welcome and very friendly hosts added to the warm and comfortable pine chalet style house with modern fittings in comfortable rooms. Breakfast was a lovely feast with lots of fresh fruit and good choice of freshly cooked fare. Excellent B&B in a stunningly beautiful area.

Durness is not big on great places to stay or eat but this is the best of the bunch. A lovely welcome, modern stylish accommodation and a hearty fresh breakfast. Great fruit selection. Just for info- it stays light here till very late and gets light early in the summer and there are no blackout blinds at windows so you... More

First the positives: superb location with lovely views and an unbeatable breakfast, especially the porridge, and our host had fascinating stories to tell of his fishing experiences and the local twice yearly NATO exercises nearby.We had arrived around mid day and after saying we would stay the night were asked to bring in a bag. Most owners would simply issue... More

Sorry my house wasn't to your very high standard :-) Yes you arrived at midday off the road and yes I asked you to leave a bag, sorry this was such a problem. By your rudeness at this stage I wished you had just left. Let me tell you why I thought you were rude, you talked down to me,... More

We stayed for one night when we toured the North of Scotland. All very clean,and a lovely place to stay. Alexandra was an excellent host, and advised us of the various places to visit, and places to eat. The Scottish breakfast was very very good and would recommend along with the porridge. We would most certainly stay again if we... More

Aiden House has lovely views to the west and the east. It is a modern very well maintained warm house and Alexandra made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable as was the rest of the house. As for the breakfast - I would give it 6 stars if I could!

We only stayed one night but really enjoyed the area. Having read a previous review, the local beaches and one of the restaurants... More

Lovely, comfortable accommodation with fantastic views. A short walk to Smooth cave and local bar and restaurant. Alexandra and her husband were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfast was amazing.
