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.

Visit to the Highlands October 2019

Great site with fantastic walking. We stayed in October with some lovely weather and the beach is glorious to walk along into Town whatever the weather. If I had had a wetsuit would have joined some others in swimming! The wardens are really helpful and the site easy to find.

Superb Brora

Other reviewers have accurately described the first class features of this site: great location, accessible beach, well managed pitches, clean facilities and superb wardens. Here are a few extra tips. 1. Clynelish Distillery: walk through the village, cross the A9 and straight ahead to the distillery for a tour, tasting, or a special purchase. Beyond are delightful road walks - left to Brora village or ahead to the Brora lakes. 2. Sam’s Spice in Brora - it’s rated no 2 for curry in Scotland and we agree. 3. Don’t just book for a single night at this site: it is worth more than a passing visit.

NC500 via Brora

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely site. It is a small, peaceful site, kept spotless by the wardens and very pretty with the hanging baskets and other flower creations (loved the flowers on the tree stumps). We got up early both mornings to watch the sun rise from the beach. We walked into Brora once via the beach and the other via the road which was about a mile and half. We caught the bus from Brora into Golspie and this cost £10.20 for two of us return journey. The timetables at the bus stop are incorrect so look online for the timetable (Stagecoach service). They run approximately every hour. We did the Big Burn waterfall which was a lovely walk through the woods, sturdy footwear needed as quite muddy in places. We caught the bus back from Golspie and asked the bus driver if he could drop us off at the distillery junction, which he did, otherwise you have to get off in Brora and walk back to site. All in all a really nice stay on our continuing NC500 route.

Good stop off along the NC500

Stayed here for 3 nights in August 2019 on our way home from John O'Groats. A well laid out site at the edge of the golf course. Most of the pitches around the site perimeter are hardstanding while those in the centre are grass. Most of the pitches are level and are of a good size. Facilities are to the usual club standard. Only downside was the water pressure in the showers was a bit on the low side compared to others we have stayed on but that is out of the site's control. A short walk across the golf course takes you onto the amazing beach and you are able to walk into Brora along it. There is a well stocked coop in the centre of the village as well as a number of other craft type shops and an ice cream parlour selling the locally made ice cream. Golspie is about 8 miles down the road which seems to have a few more shops and an excellent fish and chip restaurant From here we did the Big Burn walk and also a walk around Loch Fleet. Although not a large site, it is quite busy with people coming and going all of the time. One thing to beware is the access to the site is over a narrow railway bridge and I'm not sure if some of the newer wider caravans would be able to access it.
