This was our second visit to Barr Farmhouse, we absolutely love this gem of a B&B, we did not want to leave! Roy was the perfect host, greeting us with a warm welcome and home bakes and we could have chatted into the small wee hours as he is such a charismatic and interesting person. Breakfast on both mornings was... More

We stayed at the Barr Farmhouse for one night, but soon after arriving, wished it could have been for longer! The amount of times my jaw dropped and the words "oh, I LOVE that" came out my mouth... Lol. It was just the best experience and at a very affordable price! We just loved it all. The place, food, hospitality,... More

This was a very last minute booking due to a family crisis and so I was delighted to find that I had chanced on such a pleasant place to stay. The Hosts, Roy and Orla were friendly and chatty without being in the least intrusive. I was advised on journey times and encouraged to enjoy the short time that I... More

We arrived at the Barr Farmhouse halfway through a long slow journey home from the Highlands. We were greeted by Orla with a delicious afternoon tea in the sitting room. Genuine hospitality from the Stairmuids right through until breakfast (expertly conjured by Roy) with nothing being too much trouble. Booking through Visit Scotland was easy and straightforward too.

Dear Roy & Orla, We enjoyed every day the hospitality, the nice conversations we have had together, the fantastic breakfast and of course the beautiful Scottish scenery, hope we can come back next year all the best, Paul

What a fantastic place to stay. I was MTB racing in the Forrest of Ae over the weekend and this is only a few miles away(the closest i think), easily ridable. A secure shed was available to store the bike and Roy kindly provided a hose and some cleaning facilities. Breakfast was fantastic, a great selection. The scrambled egg and... More

We booked two nights here for my husband's birthday and I don't know that we could have picked a more relaxing and hospitable home to stay in. We were warmly welcomed with afternoon tea (and a quick hello to the lovely collies at my request!) and a good chat with Roy and Orla, who had left a birthday note in... More

We had a wonderful time at Barr Farmhouse for one night. The place is off the main road so there is minimum noise and a nice country view from the garden. After a very delicious breakfast, we sat at the table chatting with Roy till noon on so many topics. Overall, the experience was good and we rested well and... More

Roy and Orla are caring hosts with great suggestions for dining and attractions. However, Orla does go on a bit. There are only two rooms, both up a flight of steep stairs. Neither has a bath ensuite. Our room had a bathroom down 4-5 steps off the landing. Not very convenient for those who go many time during the night.... More

Our time at Barr Farmhouse with Orla and Roy was way too short. The guest rooms were very comfortable, the common room was welcoming and bright, and the breakfast delicious (and substantial). Orla and Roy are warm, welcoming hosts and are happy to share their knowledge of the area. And there are two very sweet border collies. We will be... More
