Strathy Inn, Bed and Breakfast Accommodation, Bar & Restaurant
Craig and Heather are pleased to welcome you to this small, family-run coaching inn,
set amongst the unspoilt and dramatic scenery of Scotland’s far north coast. The
inn was built around two hundred years ago as a resting place for travellers on the
north coast road. Our aim today is to provide comfortable accommodation, good home-cooked
food and friendly service to those visiting this beautiful area as well as a bar,
restaurant and social venue for the local community. For the visitor it is a great
holiday base with Strathy B&B accommodation.
Strathy is a small crofting community at the mouth of the river Strathy. We have
a beautiful beach with caves to explore and excellent surfing. Strathy Point provides
outstanding views along the coast with cliffs and rock arches. It is one of very
few habitats for the rare Scottish Primrose and one of the best spots for seeing
whales, dolphins and porpoise in the Highlands.
There is much to do and see on a Strathy B&B Holiday
The Strathy Inn makes an excellent central base for exploring the far North Highlands
from Cape Wrath to John O’Groats, and inland to remote straths, peatlands and mountains.
It can also be used as a stopping off point for trips to Orkney where the history
goes back 5,000 years from the settlement at Scara Brae to the Standing Stones of
Stenness. Strathy is surrounded by wildlife both beautiful and rare, you can see
puffins on the cliffs and many other birds with the RSPB reserve at Forsinard nearby.
There are dolphins and sometimes whales to be seen from Strathy Point. Activities
locally include surfing and kayaking , walking and, cycling. We are on the North
Coast 500 ( NC500 ) route, the LEJOG ( Lands End to John O’Groats) and several other
cycling routes. You can fish for salmon and trout, there is golf nearby at Reay
and the Castle of Mey and Dunrobin Castle to visit.
Just as key, we are perfectly placed as a base to explore the West Coast, Dornoch
Firth and the East Coast.
Everyone who stays at the Strathy Inn can enjoy a warm welcome and good food for
you to return to at the end of the day.
