We had driven from Ullapool to Durness without knowing where we would stay and were fortunate to find Aiden House and Alexandra! We had originally only intended to stay one night but after meeting Alexandra and seeing our room with a view, we decided to stay for two.
It is a wonderful house full of wonderful decoration and Alexandra pays a lot of attention to detail, and the little things do count. We had the room on the ground floor with a fantastic view from the bed to the cliffs (and sunrise). The room is not huge, but it doesn't need to be. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom had a shower and excellent amenities, and even though, as one reviewer said, the decor was not alpine like the house, it was cozy and warm feeling and perfect.
Breakfast was incredible and Alexandra places a lot of emphasis on the quality of the food she offers her guests, as she does with all of the little things in her house. I didn't feel the need to eat fatty food and was given a choice of a wide range of options (including porridge) along with the small buffet of fruit and cereals. It was wonderful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Aiden House and would unconditionally recommend accommodation and hostess to anyone who has the pleasure and opportunity to visit this special place.
