Fantastic b&b, very welcoming, lovely double room with use of a living room area with TV, games and books. Tony, Jill and Ellie were so accommodating and made us feel at home. Breakfast was lovely with a good variety. Will definitely recommend to friends and family who are heading to Durness in future, we will absolutely book to stay again... More

The owners of this bed and breakfast are really nice people, very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Twin bedded room had very comfortable beds. Quite a delicious breakfast. Very much appreciated the tea and banana cake on our arrival. We ate in the nearby Smoo Cave Hotel which proved to be a good choice. Stunning scenery in... More

I stayed at Hillside for a single night on 22nd June 2015 during my 7 day trip around the north and west Highlands of Scotland. This was my 4th successive June stay at Hillside so a review is somewhat overdue! .... sorry for the delay Tony and Jill! I guess that 4 separate stays at Hillside is a strong recommendation...

We had the pleasure of staying at Hillside B&B for one evening in May 2015. We found the B&B to be a wonderful spot, beautifully situated and very close to town. Our room was large, with plenty of room for our luggage and other belongings, and was very quiet, despite there being other guests in the B&B at the time.... More

As others have stated in their reviews, the first impression is of a warm welcome from a family friend. Tony could not be more friendly, helpful, accommodating or efficient. The guest areas feel like home, very comfortable, modern, warm & spotlessly clean. The house is very well insulated from the often harsh Durness weather. The small, thoughtful touches like offers...

We spent one night at Hillside in April 2015. The room was clean and spacious and we appreciated the guest lounge to sit in and watch the sunset over the mountains. Tony and Jill were great hosts, pointing out where to go for dinner and things to see in the area. I follow a gluten and lactose free diet which... More

Not many places to stay here and this place was lovely. Clean, great food and friendly hosts. Informative about the area also. There were only 2 choices for dinner but go to the place they suggest where you need a car. Dont walk to the restaurant on the campsite as everything they provided was out of a tin - yes... More

Tony and Jill are terrific hosts and not only run a spotless and welcoming bed and breakfast, but also help you plan your stay and onward journey. Our room was lovely and breakfast was delicious. Would stay there again if we ever get back to Durness.
