This is a delightful modern guest house set on a slope overlooking Durness towards the Cape and the sea. If it is sunny you will see lovely sunsets! There is ample parking and a warm welome from the lovely and friendly family who run this guest house. It is very conveniently situated for several excellent beaches, Smoo Cave, the jetty... More

Very nice family. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and some little cakes. Talked about our apparently similar taste in books. I like it when B&B hosts do not just show you your room and make you breakfast but try to get to know you and talk a little. The room was nice and comfortable and you habe... More

Its the little things you appreciate isn't it? Being welcomed with cake and tea, finding a jug of fresh milk in your room for a cup of tea at your leisure. Karen made us so welcome, while effortlessly managing also to look after her three very well behaved children. The rooms are spacious and very clean and a range of... More

It is a tastefully decorated B&B in Durness where we spent a restful night. Our hosts were attentive and kind. We were welcomed with a nice cup of tea and delicious homemade cookies. If you get the same room than us and you are lucky with the weather (it is Scotland…), you will have the opportunity of admiring a splendid... More

We stayed in Bae Seren for two nights while on fieldwork in the area. The room we stayed in was very cosy and clean, and the beds were lovely after a long day of driving and hiking. We were also recommended the Smoo Cave Hotel for dinner, which was very tasty. Breakfast was delicious, and we were especially appreciate our... More

A lovely B&B with very friendly hosts. we were made to feel very welocme and the three resident children were very kind in letting our 5 year old play with them. The only slightly negative thing for me was that the bed was a wee bit soft - I prefer a harder mattress. But overall, a great place to stay.

After a scenic overload bus trip on the Tongue for Transport bus I arrived in Durness hoping to stay at the Lazybackpackers YHA. No luck there-- full of American soldiers doing war games.! Other hostel not open for another three days. Panic! Saved by the helpful staff at the Tourist Information centre who put me in touch with Karen and... More

Bae Seren was a haven as our day driving from Inverness via John O'Groats moved into an early night. Karen and her three delightful children welcomed my husband, my 22-year-old son and me into their warm home and we settled in with a cup of tea and mince tarts in the downstairs lounge room available for guests. Karen suggested we... More

We stayed here for 1 night but could have easily stayed longer! We loved it here. Jill and Tony were so helpful and friendly. The lounge was a real comfy treat and the breakfast was superb! We ate in the Smoo cave hotel which was great and then took in some breathtakingly views at the very nearby beach. We love... More
