Great BandB, just what was needed on a quick visit to Durness. Would love to go back and catch the northern lights. It looked like an interesting part of the world. Good beaches, hills and just generally out there.

Excellent bed and breakfast in heart of Durness. Very friendly owners and comfortable room. Fine cooked breakfast. Convenient for Cocoa Mountain café and Smoo Cave hotel, and Smoo Cave itself. Good stop between Orkney and Ullapool.

We had a excellent nights stay at Hillside. Our room was very comfortable and breakfast the next morning was yummy. Tony and Jill made us feel very welcome. The b and b is so close to Smoo Cave and also a small craft village with a super chocolate shop.

We had four wonderful days staying in Hillside B&B in Durness. Jill, Tony and Ellie were fantastic hosts and the accommodation was second to none. Can't fault anything about our stay and we would heartily recommend Hillside B&B. The area is beautiful and the beaches are breathtaking.

We had a restful, quiet night at Hillside BnB. Durness is a very small village, but we discovered a beautiful beach, a Craft Village and stunning vistas from the cliff tops just above the interesting 'Smoo Cave' which is also worth seeing. The BnB was very comfortable- great bed, warm spacious room, perfect shower, sitting room with a view, a... More
