We were travelling arround Scotland for two weeks and Pennyland House was the best of all the accommodations. The room was very nice and very clean and the breakfast was delicious and Carol and Alison so friendly and helpful. The Thurso area is very beautiful.

This is an excellent B & B, with the hosts' attention to the needs of their guests of the highest standard. The room was very spacious with nice views, and a good bathroom. We greatly appreciated the local knowledge and area map in the room and, with the Taylors' help, had a great time in Thurso.

Lovely room, great service, friendly welcoming staff and a fantastic choice for breakfast. Nice views overlooking the bay and a short walk to the centre of Thurso. Would definately this B&B as the place to stay when visiting Thurso having stayed at various other hotels in the area

Pennlyand is absolute perfection. The owners are beyond kind (they even drove my partner and I to dinner so that we could enjoy the long walk home). The premises is renovated in a relaxed modern style with perfect taste. Breakfast is ample and delicious. Rates are a steal.

Alison, Carole and Raymond work so hard to make this a pristine welcoming and comfortable experience for their guests The rooms are beautiful - in keeping with the style of the building without feeling "reproduction" and the staircase to the upper rooms is something else! The breakfasts selection is extensive and freshly cooked - be prepared, go hungry !! Thank... More

This is one of the nicest B and B we have stayed in. Location is overlooking the sea, perfect location to stay if you are using the ferry port at Scrabster. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the breakfasts are wonderful. Carol is very attentive and nothing is to much trouble. We will return!!

Well positioned, very comfortable B&B on the edge of Thurso. On the main road but very quiet. Very convenient for the ferry. On bus route. Super views of Orkney. Lovely breakfast including fresh fruit. . Very roomy shower in "Royal Dornoch ". Lidl close by.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pennyland House is located on the edge of Thurso in a quiet, but convenient location and boasts wonderful views of the Orkney Islands, Dunnet Head, Scrabster and Thurso Bay. It is a three story building dating back over two hundred years. Built in 1780 it is historically noted for being the birthplace of Sir William Alexander Smith, the founder of the Boys Brigade. Over the past few years we have sympathetically renovated this historic building and turned it into a comfortable and interesting bed and breakfast for our guests. Although not yet rated, we are confident that you will not be disappointed with the quality and service during your stay with us. We have enjoyed putting our personal stamp on Pennyland House and have tried to reflect what we believe people want in a 'home from home'. ... more   less
