Bed and Breakfast
Bed and Breakfast accommodation
near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands
Farr, near Inverness,
20 minutes south of Inverness lies Strathnairn - the valley the River Nairn. The road along it meanders between gentle forest covered hills and rocky outcrops from Fort Augustus on Loch Ness to the A9 (the main north-south road between Edinburgh, Perth and Inverness.)
In this quiet valley Christina and James Murray welcome guests for bed and breakfast (with optional dinner with advance warning). Part of Farr Mains was built by James's grandparents in the 1930's, and parts of the house date from 1850 when it was the Mill owner's cottage.
The atmosphere is peaceful, comfortable and civilized. The Murrays keep Llamas in the field just beyond the garden gate, and grow vegetables and keep bees. This is an ideal place of seclusion in true rural Scotland, and a practical central base from which to explore the Highlands, Loch Ness, and Whisky distilleries of Strathspey.
