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

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.

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.

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
