We stayed at Glengolly B&B 2 nights the beginning of July 2015. What a wonderful place. It was just the kind of B&B we were looking for; homey, quiet, wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our stay and the quick wit of the owners! The breakfasts were very tasty and filling! We had flan which was great! Watching the dogs work was... More

We stayed here three nights on our honeymoon. The hosts are very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and breakfast – especially the Mackay Country Porridge (with caramelised sugar and a good drop of whisky) and the Glengolly Special (homemade yoghurt with fruit) – was delicious. The reasons this review is only a "very good" and not an "excellent"... More

This was a perfect B&B with welcoming hosts. Very comfortable rooms with modern conveniences including wifi. Breakfast was ridiculously amazing. I fell in love with the surrounding area as well. Highly recommended!

I stayed with Martin and Mary while participating in the Cape Wrath Challenge running races and social events, for eight nights. And I just could not be more pleased with my hosts, the accommodations, the food, and the support, all in a great location. Glengolly is located just a short ways west of the village square (Google Maps doesn’t have... More

Our room was quite large, with a small bathroom attached. There was a tv, and tea and coffee making facilities, and everything was very clean. Breakfast was superb, we ate far too much! The Glengolly yoghurt and muesli special is highly recommended, but maybe you don't need to follow it with a large full-English (Scottish). The couple who own the... More

We stayed here in August 2014 having completed the Cape Wrath Trail. Martin is the most lovely man - gentle, kind, quiet, perhaps slightly shy. The room was beautifully furnished - lovely cushions, warm, snug and cosy. One great thing is the breakfast - go for the porridge with a dash of whisky to set you up for the day;... More

We have recently returned home having spent a very enjoyable time with Mary and Martin. As this was our 17th visit (starting in 1995) you can believe that Glengolly isa favourite B&B for us. We have always been well looked after, nothing is too much trouble for them. The accomodation and breakfast are first class (especially the whisky porridge !).... More

A warm welcome from Martin and one of his dogs on the back of a quad bike saw us arrive at Glengolly. A comfortable room with en-suite and a great breakfast the following morning to set us of for the day. Anyone thinking of staying at Durness would not go wrong to book Glengolly. Highly recommended.

Glengolly is a lovely house where everything is immaculate and spotless. Ample parking, Mary is brilliant and the breakfasts are both very well cooked, perfectly presented and plentiful. BUT this is a working croft and the privilege of being allowed to accompany Martin to watch his dogs working was out of this world. I have personally taught obedience (Crufts qualifier)... More
