Farr Bay is beautiful surroundings in the village of Bettyhill in the Scottish Highlands.
It is just near Bettyhill, Farr Bay and Farr Point. Strathnaver is, generally, within the parish of Farr. Looking over to Farr bay, a rugged unspoilt coastline of Sutherland in the very north of Scotland.
Bettyhill is an historic Highland Clearance village which was founded in 1814 by Elizabeth Countess of Sutherland, in her vanity she named the village after herself!
Farr Bay Guest House is nestled amongst the dunes of Farr Bay close to the beautiful village of Bettyhill on Scotland’s North Coast, The Farr Bay Inn offers a superb location for a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The Tourist Information Centre and Strathnaver Museum sit next door, the latter offering a great insight into times past. The north coast is well known for spectacular scenery, none more so than Bettyhill. The nearby Munros of Ben Loyal and Ben Hope are but a flavour of the towering mountains which in turn meet the rugged coastline and superb beaches.
Farr Beach is one of the most spectacular beaches on the north coast, only minutes walk from the property. Many an angler regards the local rivers as the best in Scotland and a plethora of unexploited local hill lochs produce specimen wild brown trout on a regular basis – not to mention the top quality sea fishing!
The breathtaking scenery hosts an abundance of wildlife – red deer, grouse, golden eagle, wildcat, badger, pinemartin, otters, seals and many, many others which attract the naturalist and ornithologist alike, not forgetting thriving seabird colonies on the coastline.
Hillwalking, climbing, golf, surfing, pony trekking, angling and sporting shoots could all be enjoyed by guests.
