Climb Lays Brae or Drumossie Hill to the South of Inverness to enter the secret world of Strathnairn. Only fifteen minutes by car, forty minutes by cycle, an hour by horse or two hours on foot and you will leave the city far behind.

Farr is an area, rather than a village, though there are small settlements like Inverarnie, Balnafoich, Dunlichity, Flichity and Brin. The Strath, sculpted by glaciers has sheltered Picts, Celts, Jacobites and Scots. It has been visited by early Christian monks from Ireland, Romans on their way south from the battle of Mons Graupius, Vikings during their raids and Government troops putting a violent end to the Jacobite rebellion.

A ghost army is said to fight yearly battles between Duntelchaig and Ashie (Loch of Strife).

The people are friendly and helpful towards each other and to strangers nowadays, so do come and visit. We would ask you to help us keep our strath safe by closing field gates, by taking litter home, by keeping away from livestock, by parking carefully and by respecting the privacy of our people and their property.

Remember it is never too far to come to Farr.
