Chapel of Barras Farm is a working farm in the Stonehaven area of the bonnie North East of Scotland. The Farmhouse B&B is ideally located for ease of travel to Aberdeen, Dundee and all parts of Angus and Aberdeenshire. Chapel of Barras was originally a dairy farm, but now breeds Beef Cattle and grows cereal. Your hosts, David and Michelle, always wanted to start offering bed and breakfast and with this in mind, decided to take the plunge and start the laborious job of extending the farmhouse in 2009 to include 5 luxury bedrooms – all with en-suite facilities, and a comfortable dining room. The farmhouse refurbishment was a true labor of love, and this is evident from the care and attention to detail so obvious in quality of the accommodation. Each guestroom is complete with a wall-mounted plasma TV, WiFi internet, Hairdrier, Tea & Coffee making facilities.
Chapel of Barras offers 5 high quality guestrooms, all of which are suitable for double occupancy and two of which are suitable as Family rooms with the addition of junior bed/cots. Each room has private wash facilities consisting of
en-suite shower, toilet and hand basin.

The Town of Stonehaven:
On The Map: Stonehaven is situated on Scotland’s northeast coast, just 15 miles south of Aberdeen on the A90 road.
Originally a fishing village built around the High Street, and formerly known as Stonehive, the town has grown to a population of around 11,000 in modern times. The sense of history, with the impressive ruined fortress of Dunnottar Castle nearby, the awe inspiring views of the sea and harbour, the friendliness of the local people, combine to make Stonehaven special. In August 2010, Stonehaven was voted the best seaside town in Scotland in a survey carried out by the Bank of Scotland. The survey looked at the quality of life in coastal towns throughout the country, looking at factors such as crime rates, weather, property prices and earnings.
