If I gush overmuch, forgive me. The Crossburn is the most delightful countryside B&B. From the minute Michael greeted us, waiting at the gate with a warm smile, til we left with one of Jane's homegrown heads of celery tucked into a safe corner, we were spoiled rotten. The house is comfortable and immaculate. The food beautiful and tasty--holy guacamole,...

Just spent an exceptional, relaxing, fab night here with Michael and Jane. This superb guest house complete with Hot Tub is everything the weary traveller could want. The house itself oozes the friendliness feel which is added to with the knowledge and hospitality offered by Michael and Jane. Set in a very quiet area of northern Scotland but on the...

From the delicious restaurant-standard home-cooking (well done Jane) to the convivial conversation, beer and local liqueur (Michael's domain) you will not wish for a better place to stay. I would urge visitors to try out the hot-tub, even in frosty March it helped warm the proverbial cockles and ensured a good night's sleep in the well-furnished and comfortable bedroom. Breakfast...

The hosts have gone the extra mile in figuring out how to make guests feel comfortable. Pleasant conversation, a homely feel and clean modern rooms in addition to very quiet surroundings contributed to a good nights sleep. A hearty breakfast tailored to your requirements and an insight into the wildlife that frequents the garden will set you up for the...

If you're heading north for the Orkney ferry refresh yourself with an overnight stay just off the A9. Michael & Jane will make you most welcome, their facilities are first class & your choice of dinner, ordered in advance by email from an interesting menu, will set you up for the hot tub in the garden.What more could a body...

What a lovely stay we had at Jane and Michael's fantastic bed and breakfast The Crossburn. Our hosts were absolutely delightful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We ( myself , my partner and my partners mother ) only stayed for one night and I would thoroughly recommend anyone considering booking here to go for it! And also book...

This was our second visit to The Crossburn. Just completed Land's End to John O' Groats, this is 35 miles away from John O' Groats so is ideally situated for End to Enders who need a stop before the end. It is a wonderful place, spotlessly clean, wonderful hosts, the food is second to none and there is a hot...

Both Jane and Michael have the all to rare ability of judging what is the right amount of interraction with the right amount of privacy. We were on a sponsored walk and stopped over for just 1 night but their hospitality should be a bench mark for all hotelleirs to be judged by. For those of you who read this...

This is a fantastic B&B, welcoming hosts, spotlessly clean and comfortable facilities, nothing too much trouble, and I would recommend to anyone visiting Caithness. One tip - it is a spiral staircase up to the bedrooms - you may want to be aware.
