Mackay's, Durness, Scotland: hotel review

The hotel's flint-walled exterior was constructed almost 150 years ago as a home for Richard Mackay, a local merchant, and his family. Today, Robbie Mackay, Richard's great grandson, and his wife, Fiona, have transformed the interior into a cosy and inviting space. There's a wonderful sense of continuity here.
