Having arrived at the Farr bay inn on the first night of an 8 day charity cycle/climbing challenge we were much later than planned, tired and hungry. We received a warm welcome and our kind hosts reopened the kitchen and ensured we were well fed and watered! The rooms were clean and comfy and the following morning we received a... More

We stayed on the campsite up the road. The meals here where lovely and freshly prepared. the owners were very welcoming. Great local knowledge. Would definitely recommend. Although we didn't say in the rooms you could just tell that nothing was to much trouble.

Farr Bay Inn (FBI) is a country inn, not an upmarket hotel or B & B. It was, I am told, built in 1819 so of course it is not a modern property. If you are the sort of person who must have the bells and whistles then FBI is not the place for you. But if you want to... More

Our stay at Farr Bay Inn concluded the most wonderful day of travel up the west coast in mid May. Karen's warm welcome and Steve's stories about the beautiful beach and its environs made for a memorable stay. Our visit of 1 night was sadly fleeting given the outstanding location. We were well fed and our room comfortable. FBI has... More

This was an unexpected gem on our whistle stop tour of the Highlands. The hosts were dry, witty and very knowledgable let alone brave in their venture. You can't get much further up north than Farr Bay! The Inn has character that will absolutely appeal to genuine tourists but not to the habitual complainers. The food was hot, cooked to... More

Alright: If you come along and expect 3/4/5 Stars or as Ian calls it "chic" you are wrong and you should stay better in the South of Scotland. If you really want to expect something unique than the "FBI" (so called by the locals) is your place! Enjoy the tiny cozy bar and relax with a pint of Amber or... More

Right let's start by being honest here! If you are of a disposition that requires 'chic' then the Farr Bay Inn is not for you (and I doubt if owners Karan and Steve would want to dispute that) but if you are like me and appreciate a characterful building, a welcome, honest conversation, good food, good bar chat and a...

One of the most beautiful sandy beaches is just minutes away. Great to be able to have an evening meal cooked to order on the premises. Our bicycles were treated well. A good stop on the lovely north coast of Scotland.

Mesmerising is the only way to describe Farr Bay beach which we spent a lot of time on whilst spending a night at the Farr Bay Inn on the edge of Bettyhill. Neither of us had experienced a sunset quite like the one we witnessed here...for over an hour we had a perfect sphere of light with an ever evolving... More
