Farr Mains

A Bed and Breakfast in Highlands

Photo - Farr Mains

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 Private House Stay's Guide


The definition of where the highlands of Scotland starts is much disputed because there has always been a cultural divide between the highlanders and lowlanders of Scotland. Some would claim that the Highlands starts as the mountains rise above Stirling, others would justifiably befine the Highlands as the area to the North and West of the Great Glen that runs from Fort William to Inverness
