I spent a night here back in April. A friend and I were planning to cycle from Land's end to john O'Groats for charity, so we decided I would drive to Wick and leave my car there, then fly back to manchester - so we had a vehicle near John O'Groats to bring our bikes back after the journey.
The room was great - comfortable bed and all mod cons. Breakfast was immaculate. Then I aksed Elspeth (Landlady) where would be safe to park the car - and she offered to watch over it for me for the month while I was away.
So we went off and did the ride - I called a couple of days before getting to John O'Groats to let them know I would be picking the car up soon...and Elspeth and her husband very kinly offered to deliver my car to John O'Groats to save us the last 17 miles of cycling, As it turned out this was a real godsend as the weather was atrocious!
So what a great B&B and hosts who bent over backwards to help me out and wouldn't take a penny for their extra time and effort.
If only all B&B's were like this!!
