Just returned from the most relaxing yoga retreat at this lovely homely b&b run by James and Christina Murray. Their hospitality was so warm and welcoming and the food was wholesome and delicious, all expertly made by Christina. The yoga was in a lovely garden room just off the main house with a lovely wood burning stove and blankets to... More

Thank you so much Mrs Murray, We had a wonderful night`s stay here , welcomed into your home like old friends. It made our first Scottish road trip quite memorable and we would certainly return. The food was amazing, good home made fayre. She must work very hard behind the scenes and it was much appreciated.

Farr Mains is a gem tucked away just outside of Inverness. We were greeted by James and Christina and welcomed with a warm fire and a proper cup of tea, the perfect way to start our stay. Filled with antiques, books and family photos, you feel like you are visiting friends. Our room was tucked upstairs in a cozy section... More

Lovely B&B. Christina looked after a group of Morgan owners very well. Spacious rooms with lovely views - couldn't help but watch the llamas for an hour or so! A lounge for guests was a nice touch. Shame we were only staying for two nights - but a good excuse to return for a further visit to the area!

Any B & B with an abundance of books (both stacked on tables and in bookcases in the hallways) wins my vote... I already feel comfortable in a place that respects / encourages reading. But Christina goes SO FAR above that. Actually, even the dogs go above and beyond: When we arrived and there was no response from our ringing... More

Immediately upon arrival we were greatly impressed with the wonderful Farr Mains house, followed quickly by the sparkly, warm greeting from dear Christina who made us feel so very welcome. We were shown to our delightful room which had a slightly sloping ceiling giving us the lovely cosy feeling of pure comfort. Meals were all delicious, cooked with such inspiration... More

For many years we have visited Farr Mains , in Spring and Autumn, and such visits could not have been contemplated without the many kindnesses shown to my husband and myself by Mrs Murray. The excited anticipation we experience when approaching a visit to Farr Mains is second to none, and this anticipation is always well founded! Mrs Murray is... More

"Lama Farm from Hell" : is that the same Farr that we know, this man is writing about ? My husband and I have been going to Farr Mains for 6 years running. And not just for the stunning Highland scenery, but because the place ticks all the right boxes. From the moment we stepped over the threshold, Christina and... More

We have stayed at Farr as a couple and later with young children and have always received a very warm welcome from Christina and James. The house is very cosy with an open fire and is surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The full Scottish fry-up in the morning is a real treat and dinner is also excellent. Christina's hospitality is one... More
