I still remember when B&B's were still somewhat primitive and before going to bed you had to socialize with the hosts late into the night, including their families and pets, too. In some cases this seems to have disappeared, and to our surprise when passing through Thurso we found the B&B Oag, with a wing of the house that's dedicated exclusively to guests, with private bathrooms that are hardly distinguishable from a nice hotel, at least to me. They took extremely good care of us without intruding on our privacy. It was a very good price considering the quality of accommodation and the fact that it was beyond clean. The B&B is run by an elderly couple, Mr. and Mrs. Oag. I definitely recommended spending the night here.
