Why stay here ...

Situated just north of Brora on the east coast of Sutherland, Brora Club Site is set in a sheltered saucer of land with pretty views of the surrounding countryside and just 300 yards from a sandy beach. You can play golf directly from the caravan site and use the course as your pathway to the sea.

The site offers plenty of attractions for the whole family. Birdwatchers will be in their element - there are even Arctic Tern nesting just above the beach waterline. Those who enjoy water activities will have a choice of the loch or the sea for either swimming or fishing. The caravan park is an ideal place to unwind - you can lose track of time while watching birds, seals, dolphins and deer. The village of Brora is only a couple of miles away and has shops and a couple of dining options, and you can walk further down the coast to Golspie with additional eating and drinking establishments.

To fully take in the spectacular views of the region you can walk, drive or cycle along quiet routes to discover the many picturesque lochs and mountains. The single track rail journey to Wick is a scenic must and the Orkney Islands beckon with day trips from John O'Groats at Brora during the summer.

September Adventure 2020

Just spent 4 lovely nights at Brora for the second time this year. The beach is amazing and well worth the walk. Easy access from the site to the beach and a walk along the golf course to Brora town is a great day out. Cycling on the small back roads around the site is also very good. Easy check in and very helpful wardens who clearly take a pride in keeping the facilities up to a high standard. Can't wait to go back next year.

Good but not what its was

Have visited Brora 6 times over the last 5 years and this is the first time I've not marked it as a five! Before anyone says Motorhome bashing I can only report it as I see it. Have just stayed for 13 nights and it's lost some of its sparkle. Brora was always a quiet little gem of a site, majority of people staying 3/4 days minimum - not much traffic, people stopping for an idle chat to while away the hours. Over the 13 nights I'd say most days were at least 90% full if not 100% At a guess 20/30% of campers leaving after one night - more traffic, less chat, less atmosphere 30% of vehicles had the word hire on them and probably explained the onsite speeding and in the cul de sac an interesting approach to reversing in what is a tight area! The sights are it are all textbook Scotland, hills, valleys purple heather and you can never take away from that but may be time to start looking at quiet private sites!

Brora

First site since joining club. We had an illness in the family which affected our booking but the staff were vey flexible and helpful with amending dates. Covid procedures were simple and effective and made us feel secure.Had anyone not been following them (as mentioned in another review ) i would have no problem reporting them. Lovely site, good location and great for walks along the beach, or in the local countryside. Good value for money. There was no option for not applicable on the review section “good for families” as it didnt apply to us but i put 5* so as not to reduce the overall rating

We must all follow the Rules

I like the Brora and being from the north stay there frequently. My wife and I were there this past week and enjoyed our stay. But it was disturbing to find on at least two occasions more than two people were in the toilet block on at least two occasions. Before I left this morning from my shower I heard two adults talking. When I challenged them I found one other person had a wrist band and two others did not. There was actually four of us in the block! My wife came across a similar situation on leaving a toilet cubicle she found two German females at the hand wash bowl who would not move but told her to wash her hands in one of the privacy cubicles. It is unfair to hardworking staff and other campers that such people break the rules and put the health of us northern residents at risk.
