My wife and I stayed two nights at Skara B&B in Thurso. It is situated on a hill top about a mile out of town, We arrived without reservations and were greeted enthusiastically by the owner Gloria Swanson. Gloria is an energetic and gracious host. She has everything highly organized and had us settled in quickly.
The room was clean and neat. The view from our window was a panorama of the local countryside and the Orkney Islands in the distance. The Internet, shower and coffee/tea service worked well. And we were well fed the next two mornings. Gloria also was good at giving local travel advice.
Two improvements I would like to have had:
1. Heat in the morning. The radiator in the room did not turn on until 7:00 a.m. so it was very cold for an early riser.
2. A bigger wash basin. The one in our room was microscopic and difficult to access. It made shaving in a cold room a real challenge.
The total cost for two people for two days was 112 pounds - a reasonable value.More
