We loved staying here for three nights. Raymond and Carol are so welcoming and kind. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room had an amazing view. The breakfast was excellent. This establishment is run very professionally and we can't wait to visit again. Thanks for having us! See you in singapore some day.

We have just spent three nights at this fantastic B&B. Everything about the place is top notch - spotlessly clean, excellent breakfasts, easy parking, good quality bedding and last, but not least the best hosts ever! They've even put together a list of interesting places to visit and included in the pack a Landranger map with the places numbered on... More

Other reviewers have used up all the superlatives and they are all true! So what can I add? Well, that we were travelling by train and bus and appreciated being picked up at the station and then, later, guided as to how to get out into the countryside. And that when one of us was unwell at first, Carol and... More

We spent the night here on route around the north coast 500 as part of our honeymoon. Immaculate house and the owners could not have been nicer ( our boy Euan has a new mate in carol ) please do not stay anywhere else you will not be disappointed. We will be back.

My mother and I stayed here for one night while journeying from Orkney to Kingussie. It was absolutely excellent. Their website says that they like to travel and have tried to offer guests what they would like themselves. And it shows! We were met off the ferry from Stromness and driven to their lovely place on the edge of Thurso... More

Raymond and Carol were perfect hosts - welcoming, kind, attentive, helpful. The location is spectacular, overlooking the firth with distant views of the Orkneys. Food is great, generous, tasty, attractively served in a bright dining-room that shares the sea view. Parking is plentiful, only minutes from a bracing walk along the shore - into town, which is so close. This... More

Pennyland has easy parking and Carol and Raymond are very welcoming hosts. Great views from the room at the top. The coastline is stunning and it was lovely to talk to the hosts who were actually from the area and very informative.

Hosts were extremely nice, very welcoming and most helpful with recommendations on where to eat and what to see. Stunning views from the top floor. The location is convenient to the town. Bed was comfortable. Floors were pretty squeaky.

Pennyland House is on the outskirts of Thurso away from the congestion of town and with a lovely open outlook facing out to the waters of Pentland Firth, yet is still close enough to all the amenities on offer in town. There is off-street parking in front of the building. Everything about this place is so well done, from the... More

What a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the lovely area around Thurso. Raymond and Carol truly are the perfect hosts and the title of my review is a direct quote from them. When you arrive they make you feel right at home and already part of the "family" and the accommodation is first class. The breakfasts are superb and... More

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
