Thurso is a town of some character on the northernmost coast of Scotland, the ferry departure point for Orkney and thence to Shetland. So its natural to want to find a good bed and breakfast facility that's close to the ferry terminal. Thurso is an interesting place but generally speaking standards of accommodation provision is not good. Pentland Lodge House is most definitely the exception! Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff gave us a very warm welcome and showed us to magnificently-appointed bedrooms (mine was particularly spacious), and the bath towels were positively luxurious (a comment I made to a delighted manager). Recommendations were given for dining out but we made our own arrangement. With an early departure the next morning being served breakfast at 7.00am was not a problem, and the food was delicious. My only criticism of Pentland Lodge House is that its website really does not do it justice: an establishment of this quality and excellence deserves a professionally-designed website.
