Hubby and I spent a night here as we travelled around the north coast looking for property. A warm welcome The room was big and therefore was cold, the shower needed a good scrub down with bleach and the tiles secured to the wall. The bed was large but the bed covers haven't been ironed and smelled very strongly of... More

Breakfast was vey good we ate again with our dog. Very welcoming hosts who explained the short walk to the beach which... More

Welcome was very friendly, the room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The inn had a small bar and the evening meal was excellent. Easy car parking and the beach just 350 meters way. An excellent place to stay.

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
