We had a excellent nights stay at Hillside. Our room was very comfortable and breakfast the next morning was yummy. Tony and Jill made us feel very welcome. The b and b is so close to Smoo Cave and also a small craft village with a super chocolate shop.

We had four wonderful days staying in Hillside B&B in Durness. Jill, Tony and Ellie were fantastic hosts and the accommodation was second to none. Can't fault anything about our stay and we would heartily recommend Hillside B&B. The area is beautiful and the beaches are breathtaking.

We had a restful, quiet night at Hillside BnB. Durness is a very small village, but we discovered a beautiful beach, a Craft Village and stunning vistas from the cliff tops just above the interesting 'Smoo Cave' which is also worth seeing. The BnB was very comfortable- great bed, warm spacious room, perfect shower, sitting room with a view, a... More

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...
