#2 of 24 B&Bs / Inns in Thurso
Pennyland House is located on the edge of Thurso in a quiet, but convenient location and boasts wonderful views of the Orkney Islands, Dunnet Head, Scrabster and Thurso Bay. It is a three story building dating back over two hundred years. Built in 1780 it is historically noted for being the birthplace of Sir William Alexander Smith, the founder of the Boys Brigade. Over the past few years we have sympathetically renovated this historic building and turned it into a comfortable and interesting bed and breakfast for our guests. Although not yet rated, we are confident that you will not be disappointed with the quality and service during your stay with us. We have enjoyed putting our personal stamp on Pennyland House and have tried to reflect what we believe people want in a 'home from home'.

We received a really warm and very friendly welcome from Raymond on arrival. The B&B is beautiful and in a good location. Our room was spotlessly clean beautifully decorated and furnished, lovely bathroom with very spacious shower unit. Breakfast was lovely with a great choice, loved the tartan cups and saucers. Raymond was very helpful with advise on places to visit and places to eat locally.

As part of our Scottish roadtrip we booked 2 nights in Thurso. This gem of a B&B is the icing on the cake. Ideal location for visiting the north coast, John O'Groats etc. A really warm welcome from Raymond and our room The Carnoustie was spacious, beautifully decorated - comfortable bed with luxurious bedding. Extra touches of filter coffee, Tunnocks tea cakes added to the special feeling. Breakfast overlooking the sea with Orkney Islands just in the distance. Service is excellent, even get a choice of how you like your scrambled eggs 🥚. As someone else said all washed down with coffee from the biggest cups in the world 🙂. It really does deserve it's 5 star rating
