Dog Frendly

Blackfield B&B, has recently been opened on working farm near Thurso at the very ‘top’ of Scotland by the Pentland ferry to Orkney (7 miles across the firth).

You will get a warm, enthusiastic and helpful reception from owner Robert Thomson who runs this Bed and Breakfast by the Gills Bay ferry.  We are flexible so can arrive as late as you like, for example.

Nothing is too much trouble, so whether you need an escort to help you find us, to a tour of the farm or just some local advice please ask.

This Accommodation is the ideal base to explore the Northern Highlands being 5 miles from the Castle of Mey, 3 Miles from John O’Groats, 7 miles from Mary-Ann’s Cottage and only 25 mins drive from Thurso or Wick the centre of the North Coast Tourism.  

Apart from easy day trips to Orkney where the oldest settlements in Europe have been found going back 5,000 years at Scara Brae, the mainland has many treasures.

In the immediate area around Gills Bay and the B&B there is much to do and see from history, walks, wildlife and, for the more adventurous, Thurso is the hub of the North’s famous surfing and kayaking.
