Seven of my family stayed in Aiden House from 14th - 17th August and on every level this B & B scores higher than I have ever experienced before. Nothing was too much trouble, everything to make our stay more comfortable was offered. Alexandra and Kenny were fantastic hosts and their hospitality created a friendly, homely atmosphere.

I was immediately made to feel at home and part of the family by Alexandra and Kenny. The facilities were top quality and would put many a 4-star hotel to shame. Be prepared to conquer a large breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights with alexandra & kenny in their beautiful, modern, spotless house. From the moment we were greeted on arrival we felt at home. The breakfast was amazing, lots off choice and huge portions that really do set hou jp for the day. This must be the best location in Durness, views are stunning from every window. I'm... More

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

The B&B is well located in Durness, a short walk from the village centre and a few minutes drive from the main attractions and eating options. 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
