Lovely traditional Scottish house in its own grounds outside Thurso. We had rooms in the grounds purpose build. These rooms were amazing. Large rooms, beautiful beds and facilities. Wonderful evening meal and delightful well stocked bar.

I love Forss House Hotel. Proper old world charm. A very comfortable, homely and relaxed hotel. Friendly and approachable staff. Comfortable, clean rooms with great views and with a bath I could swim in. Small waterfall on the grounds which adds to the charm. Six of us stayed en route to Orkney and had DB&B. The food at dinner was fabulous - the Scrabster scallops were amazing. Breakfast was great too. Fab use of local products. High recommend. Can't wait to stay again.

Top quality period hotel with bags of character, welcoming friendly attentive staff, set in amazing grounds, together with a lovely waterfall, river and wandering deer. On the NC500 so also well placed and with plenty of parking, thoroughly recommended. Super copper bath in one room too.

We received a warm welcome from the owner and found ourselves in a comfortable, recently updated room with a very good new bathroom. This is very much a well organised and comfortable fishing hotel (on the Forss River)and I would guess that a third or half of the guests were returning, happy fishers. It is definitely one of the best hotels on the NC500 route but would make a great base for anyone exploring the north coast
