Our third visit to Skara B & B. It is in a great location with good views of surrounding countryside and over to Orkney. A very comfortable room and a very satisfying breakfast. Just five minute drive into Thurso for amenities and places to eat. Proprietor Gloria is very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.

Gloria is a nice host and a walking library with all the information you need. She advised us to go to some treasures of the most northern part of Scotland. The rooms had all you need, the view marvelous ! The breakfast is great, although if you’re a small eater, give upfront notice, otherwise you get giant croissants, and we do not want to throw away good food. So the extra weight, we just walked extra. A place to keep in mind if you are in the Thurso area looking for a B&B.

Skara is an exceptional bed and breakfast! Mine host, Gloria, is charming and full of local knowledge. Our room had an absolutely stunning view of the Orkney Isles. It was immaculate and extremely comfortable. Gloria went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Our only complaint was that the stay was not long enough!

We have stayed with Gloria before and received another warm welcome. The B&B is very clean and comfortable. The bedrooms are a good size and we enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Wonderful views looking over to Orkney. There is a small lounge for residents which is very comfortable.
