“Very comfortable; great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We found Hillside from TripAdvisor and stayed one night. It is an excellent B&B and great value. We had a large room with comfy twin beds, a huge wardrobe and large chest of drawers. There is no TV in the room, but a huge residents' lounge with TV and sofas. There is free wi-fi and loads of tea, coffee, biscuits etc in the room. There was a super ensuite shower room with a big shower enclosure. Jill and Tony are excellent hosts. A great breakfast is served at a single large table so you can easily chat to fellow guests. The property has lots of off-street parking and is a very short drive from Smoo Caves and Durness village.

A far too brief but very comfortable stay with Tony, Jill and Ellie at Hillside B&B. We received a wonderful welcome after a long drive, a huge pot of tea and tasty banana cake. After an enjoyable evening stroll with lots of fresh air, we slept easily in our very comfortable twin room. Breakfast was fantastic and we enjoyed the company of our fellow guests before setting off to the very nearby smoo cave and walk. Thanks so much, we only wish it wasn't such a fleeting visit. Jeff and Linda.

We stayed her for just the one night on our tour of the Highlands.Tony gave us a warm welcome and Jill was freindly and chatty too !
Our room was clean, modern and comfortable.There is no tv in the room, but having the use of the spacious living and dining room meant this was not a problem.
We ate our evening meal, which was very good, at the Smoo Cave Hotel - a 2 minute drive.A nice friendly bunch there also.
Breakfast in the morning was good and plentiful.
Recommended.

Hillside bnb is so lovely. Hosts are so nice and their daughter is cute. This place is so cozy and comfort. Rooms are clean and nice. Bathrooms are lovely (wish that I have same). Breakfast was delicious. I feel like im home or sleepovers on my cousins or something.

Location is pretty good and landscape is awesome. Dont stay here because you are in Durness, stay Durness so you can be here!

Jill and Tony are so helpful. We had tea and homemade cake on arrival which was delicious... it was very cold in the Highlands but the house was nice and cosy. Our double bedroom was lovely. Clean and nice decor. Nice ensuite. Yummy breakfast.

Stayed for 1 night in the double room - very clean, comfortable, quiet and spacious, exactly as the pics took by others show (although we can only comment on the 1 room, judging by the standards throughout the rest of the property, the other rooms would be just as good). The breakfast is fab and you get a sense that nothing would be too much trouble.
Jill and Tony have a vast knowledge and plenty of info of the local area.
We will definitely be back!
