Roy and Orla made us really welcome. Breakfast is excellent, fruit salad and cooked breakfast + Orla's special bread and loads of other options to choose from. The first challenge on arrival is the tea (or coffee) and cake all yummy. Bed was really comfy and there is plenty of room in the downstairs lounge to relax. One thing to... More

Thank you Roy and Orla for making our holiday better than we could have imagined. Very warm welcome (with GOOD scones), great people to talk to, nice accomodation with plenty of space in the living room, makes you feel at home right away, though so far from home. We'll definitely be back! Een echte aanrader voor wie in de streek... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay; beds comfy, scones perfect, brekky fresh and the property and puppies very picturesque. The couple here were so hospitable. A great spot to stay. This B&B is a bit off the beaten track but was perfect for us

We stayed at the Barr Farmhouse for six nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Roy and Orla are two of the most hospitality host and hostess we have ever met. When we arrived, we were treated with a genuine Scottish Tea with great cakes. Throughout our six day visit, Roy and Orla spent many hours talking with us... More

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.

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
