Site details

Why stay here

Nestled on the east coast of the Scottish Highlands, beside a sandy beach and within hiking distance of Brora’s river, loch and the mountains, we have the perfect setting for a wild, outdoors experience.

Wildlife lovers are drawn to this area for a chance to see dolphins, grey whales, seals, otters, Arctic Terns and deer. There are flat coastal paths and high, grassy peaks behind us that allow you to see spectacular views across the sea and the rugged countryside.

We are also within two hours of John O’ Groats, Dunnet Head, Ullapool and Dornoch.

Family days out

Introduce yourself to Brora at the Heritage Centre. Entry’s free and it has a small museum as well as information on local events and activities.  

Following the coast is a single track railway line. Leave the car behind and enjoy the stunning scenery as you travel north towards Wick. Stop off at Helmsdale to check out the multi-media and interactive exhibitions at Timespan museum.

Activities & experiences nearby


Cycling

Highland Wildcat specialises in mountain bike trails.  They have prepared three mountain bike routes around the area that are suitable for different levels of ability. 

For a peaceful, circular cycle trip on traffic-free roads, try the route up towards Strath Brora and back via Dunrobin Glen.

Route 1, Aberdeen to John O'Groats is the nearest National Cycle Network - view Sustrans cycle map


Walking

From Brora, aim for East Clyne and Loch Brora and then return to the village along the riverside.

In Golspie, the Big Burn waterfall walk takes you through woodland and across bridges. It sits beneath Ben Braggie (the hill with the statue of Duke of Sutherland at the top) - a steep climb but a fantastic hill walk.

Three miles up the coast is Loth. Here there’s a valley that’s peppered with ferns and pine trees - at dusk the deer come down from the hills to graze.


Things to try

Brora and the surrounding coastline is great for fossil hunting. If you travel up to Helmsdale there is also a licenced centre where you can pan for gold.

For countryside horse riding, the Star Stables is a five minute walk from the Heritage Centre. We’re also not far from a swimming pool, golf club and bowling club.

To warm up after a mountain walk, Clynelish Distillery lets you tour their whisky factory and taste some of the local produce.


Pubs and restaurants

Local to us is the Sutherland Inn and The Royal Marine Hotel.

Top lunch spots in Golspie include Coffee Bothy for a colourful selection of homemade cakes and The Courthouse Café, a contemporary deli / tea house.

If you’re in Dornoch, The Jail clothes and gift shop has a little surprise café on the ground floor.
