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.

A wonderful B&B, Jill and Tony were excellent hosts. A comfortable luxurious room and delicious breakfasts. The surrounding countryside is stunning, a friendly local to eat in and plenty of recommendations from the hosts as to places to visit and local walks. A true home from home. Would definitely return.

When we once go back to Durness we will definitely stay at the same place! It was very quiet and one of the best B&B's we visited in Scottland. Many thanks to our host and hopefully we’ll see you again.

Our room was spotless and beautifully decorated and the breakfast in the morning was great (kept us going 'til well after lunchtime). We also met Tony and Ellie,and the family helped us with info regarding the... More

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
