During our one week trip to Scotland when we stayed each night at a different B&B, we found this B&B by chance and we were so lucky. The room was very nice and clean and the hosts made us feel so welcome. We loved staying there.

My travel friend and me stayed in many B&B s all over Britain and Ireland. This was the best B&B so far. Nothing Tony, Jill and Ellie should change. Perfect Breakfast and clean nice rooms. Would stay again, Markus Germany

Tony welcomed me warmly and offered to help with taking my bags into the house. My room (single with private bathroom) was clean warm and comfortable and with plenty of tea and coffee etc on the hostess tray. Breakfast was very good and plentiful setting me up well for my day exploring and photographing the area. Glad to have stayed... More

Jill and Tony Jackson will be your excellent hosts at this comfortable, modern home. Rooms are moderately large with nice facilities. Breakfast was plentiful, well prepared, and the fresh fruit was a nice treat. Tony was particularly helpful about giving us ideas for dinners--where to go and where not to. We'll plan to stay again at Hillside B&B.

Tony welcomed us warmly (Jill was out shopping) when we arrived and we were delighted to accept his offer of tea and home-baked biscuits after our long drive. When asked a question he went out of his way to find the correct information if he didn't already know it. We had a great meal at the local pub and returned... More

Upon arrival the owner Tony came out and greeted us and offering to carry our bags which was a friendly and positively unusual welcome. The room itself was spotless and nicely furnished. There were adequate tea/coffee/hot choc making facilities and the bathroom, although basic, was fine and had everything required. Value for money wise i would say very good, fairly... More

Although we visited Durness in August the weather was quite challenging with gale force winds and heavy showers. Tony, Jill and Ellie made us very welcome in their home and we appreciated their offer of returning to the guest lounge during the day to take refuge when necessary. They definitely went the extra mile, providing tea and delicious homemade cakes,... More
