I stayed here in April 2015 whilst on a solo cycle trip in the area. The Inn is on a main road between Thurso & Bettyhill. I was given a double en suite room even though I was on my own, lovely room with all amenities. I had an evening meal in the bar which was good. Breakfast was also... More

The inn is located in a remote part of northern Scotland but the inside has everything you can wish for a cosy, quiet stay. We stayed only one night, in a twin room. The beds were very comfy, the bathroom was huge and the shower warm and working fine. Wifi was fast, and if you are a fussy sleeper, then... More

A warm welcome from owners on arrival. The rooms were full of character, far removed from the bland standards in chain hotels. The choice of breakfast was expansive and the quality 1st class. Evening meals in the bar were of equally high quality and again a great selection.

The Strathy Inn is a great little gem of a B&B!! The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We had the double room, with a large bed in and a good en-suite, the room was large and had all we needed and more; tea coffee faculties, TV, information file. The room was very clean as well and had good quality... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay, and hope you manage to make the long trip up here again soon. We were sorry our stocks of rhubarb jam were too low to enable you to buy some to take home, but the rhubarb in the garden is now beginning... More

Overall, I would say that this Inn is typical of its type, warm friendly hosts, good breakfast, but some limitations. Unfortunately for us, we arrived at the Inn some three days after the owners returned from their holidays. The evening meals that were provided, whilst tasty, were straight out of the freezer with no fresh produce available. Wifi was available,... More

We had a lovely meal. The menu has several choices blending local produce with a nice twist. We were looked after well and enjoyed a few drinks in front of the fire. I had the roasted bree and the venison casserole followed by the spectacular Orkney cheesecake. The service is good and altogether we had a great evening.

This was a lovely little B &B, clean and tidy, wonderful host who knew the area and generous breakfast with homemade jams (rhubarb and ginger jam). Unfortunately we were only there for one evening and it suited our need perfectly.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review and I'm glad you enjoyed Heather's rhubarb and ginger jam, made with rhubarb from the garden, All our bathrooms do have generous sized showers and not baths. We appreciate that some people prefer a traditional bath, but most visitors these days seem to prefer a shower, so when... More

We stayed a night on the way to Orkney and again on our return a week later. A great place to break the journey. The room was well fitted out with a large comfy bed and well appointed en-suite. We had dinner on both occasions which was delicious. I would recommend the Beef and mushroom pie with Orkney Dark Island... More

Great food, good range & good quality. Would go back next time we were in the area. Very hospitable. Located in a quiet sleepy little town on the side of the main road but not mch traffic goes by!! There is accommodation there but we never stayed.

I stayed here three nights as a base to bag Ben Hope and Ben Klibreck, and it was a very good choice. It's extremely remote, 20 miles from Thurso in one direction and the same from Tongue in the other, but there is an austere beauty to it. The Inn itself looks unprepossessing from the outside, and the stairs to... More
