“Great stay at the top of Scotland”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Karen and Kevan didn't make it happen but we enjoyed three of the sunniest days (out of 36) in Scotland while staying in Durness. But they did make the days even better because we had a great place to return to in the evenings. Karen helped us with local information as well. And then there were the breakfasts: Wow. I had hoped to loose a little weight while on holiday. Breakfasts like this didn't help!

We would definitely recommend staying at Bae Seren.

Room Tip: The room on the northwest corner gives a great view of the sunset.

Very nice welcome from Karen with tea and banana loaf – delicious! We only stayed one night but could not fault it in any way. Very comfortable room. We used the guest lounge which was much better than just spending time in our room. Plentiful breakfast set us up for a great day in the area. We would stay here again.

We spend three nights in Bae Seren and enjoyed the incredible hospitality and service of Karen & Kev. Rooms flawless, service flawless, breakfast flawless and behold...even the scenery of durness is flawless (which is not in the owners' hands). Totally recommended.

Gorgeous location for this B & B, not too far from Durness and convenient for visiting the area. Above all, Karen and Kevan will offer you a warm welcome, a clean and spacious room and comfortable beds (try absolutely the comfortable mattresses ... perfect for unforgettable sleep), with a beautiful view to the outside. Value for money unbeatable. Recommended.

Wonderful value for money.double bed but it was comfortable. Family were delightful , different set up with lounge for guests downstairs, rather than tv in room, felt a little like we were intervening in their life, but they just encouraged us to use the room ,which we did on second night. Both Kevan N Karen very helpful with any info on the area .

From the cup of tea and slices of home-made cake when we arrived Karen, Kevan and their three lovely children made us very welcome, even though we were two soggy bikers! The room is homely, the bathroom is bright and everything is spotless. I can't recommend Bae Seren highly enough!

Very nice family, nice rooms and good breakfast at reasonable price. It has absolutely everything a guest needs. The B&B is very close to the caves. However the restaurants in Durness were not close to the quality level of this lovely B&B.
