Denise provided excellent hospitality and delicious food. The accommodation is very comfortable and spotlessly clean.Very good value for money. We will certainly return. Please note the final part of your satnav guidance, if entering a postcode, is likely to be wrong and you should follow Denise's helpful directions.

We had a great few days staying with Denise and Oscar. They made us very welcome and almost part of the family. You will never go hungry or thirsty staying with Denise as she provides a lovely breakfast, great coffee and plenty more delights! The house is in the most amazing location and weather permitting, you can see for miles....

The accommodation is 5 star and so is the host Denise. A great location with a luxury feel. The atmosphere is best described as relaxed and homely. Breakfast is fantastic with home-made scones (Coconut-Pineapple / Cheese/Cimanon) Denise is a great chef and we were treated to an evening meal. Beautiful House, Location, Host

I stayed here a while back (Aug '14), but it was the most wonderful B&B, and my fiance and I regularly talk about how fantastic Denise and Jim were. The house is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Denise very kindly did some of our laundry, as we had been traveling for over a week in Shetland already before getting to Castlehill,...

From the moment you set foot in this house, you are made welcome. The host, Denise, ably assisted by Mike, spare no effort to make Castlehill your home. Nothing is off limits and Denise is more than happy to sit and chat over a drink as well as give advice about where to go and what to see. The room...

If you want a fantastic place to stay then this it it. Denise is an absolute gem of a lady, nothing is a bother for her. You are treated like a family member and not a guest. We had a front facing room and the view was amazing and very relaxing. The room was also spotless and had shampoos soaps...

We had a blast! What a beautiful house and even more beautiful hostess! Denise is a dream, it was more like staying with your best friend! Nothing was too much trouble and each meal was like a party, lots of fun and much laughter. All meals were cooked to perfection, after much discussion for what everyone wanted. The fresh scones...

Denise of Castlehill is quite simply A STAR, from the moment you step over her threshold to her very warm welcome, to the time you say your reluctant farewells, her whole focus is to make her guests feel as happy and relaxed as possible.
