Originally part of a stately home dating back to the Georgian era, this unique property comprises of a converted chapel and tenants hall and has been recently renovated to the highest standard. Combining contemporary design with original features, Farr maintains it’s historical feel whilst offering all the luxurious advantages of modern living – including en-suite bedrooms, underfloor heating, and super-fast broadband.
Nestled deep in the hills down a winding driveway, Farr’s picturesque and private location has made it host to a number of illustrious guests, including The Duke of Gloucester, the writer Peter Fleming, and his wife, the actress Celia Johnson.
The beautiful setting of Farr feels unspoilt. With its expansive grounds, ancient woodland and views to the heather-clad hills, the traditional Highland landscape looks very much unaltered. In 2014 there were even some bowls discovered nearby that dated back to the Iron Age, that still lie in the field behind the walled gardens.
For those who enjoy wildlife, there is no end of natural sightings around Farr. Ospreys are often seen diving into the loch to catch trout, stags can be heard roaring from the hills during the mating season, and there have been sightings of rare wild cats on the expansive moors.
Farr was extensively refurbished in 2016 to meet all modern requirements and expectations.
