We were in Thurso, on a Saturday evening, with no bed for the night. By chance, I found this B and B on the internet. Phoned and was told that there was "room at the inn". On arrival, we were met by Kathryn, who showed us the room. What a shock! It was huge! Large double bed, huge single? bed,... More

I spent only one night at this wonderful B&B with my three daughters, and we adored it. Kathryn and her husband were very welcoming and helpful in giving me information about the area.

As you walk in the front door it's like walking into your best friend's home. It's very welcoming and Kathryn is always there to greet you with a smile.
