My wife and I have stayed at the Strathy Inn on a number of occasions whilst relocating to the area. The accommodation is to a high standard and Heathers breakfast scrambled eggs with local smoked salmon were a real treat and not to be missed. I have stayed at hundreds of guest houses and hotels over the years and often... More

Stayed for 3 nights at fairly short notice. Very comfortable and well appointed with masses of books! Friendly proprietors and good choice of home cooked food in the bar restaurant. Many whiskies available to try!

To whom ever it may concern, On visiting this inn for the first time I felt like it on first assessment that it was going to be a lovely warm, welcoming eatery, what I found it to be was like an episode of the league of gentlemen. People came in for food and were turned away from reserved tables that... More

I am sorry you found your experience at the Strathy Inn disappointing. Our aim is to provide good quality, home cooked food, somewhat different from standard “pub grub” at reasonable prices in a pleasant environment. Clearly you consider that we failed in that, but we do find some of your comments very difficult to understand. I am aware you asked... More

Having spent the night here whilst travelling through the North of Scotland we stayed at the Strathy Inn and received the most excellent service. The owners put themselves out to make us welcome. The rooms were warm, clean and comfortable and the food was delicious. We will be certain to return whenever we are in the area.

In a stunning landscape this Inn is perfectly placed - a warm.and friendly welcome from Heather was just the start. The rooms were comfortable with large well appointed bathrooms. Dinner in the Inn featured well cooked home made dishes at great prices - this followed by a few whiskies in the bar chatting to Craig who offered ideas for stops... More

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
