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

As a solo traveller I was a little worried about visiting Durness. I had visions of not being able to travel much, and being stuck in a remote location. However I really wanted to visit Cape Wrath and Durness is the nearest village. I need not have worried. This B&B is slightly outside of Durness village but it is so... More

Stayed for 3 nights, and had a very relaxing time. Great hosts, Good rooms and excellent power shower. Breakfast excellent. Good guest Lounge with TV. Durness is interesting - especially with remains of the old wartime RAF radar station, lots of info, even down to enemy spies landing to try and get information. A visit to Cape Wrath is good...
