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.

Tenting

Just back from a one night stay, last minute, three couples on motorcycles and small tents. This is a lovely site and the tent pitches were great, level, plenty of space and easy on the tent pegs. As with most club sites the facilities were spot on and the Wardens were more than helpful. Going back with caravan in the autumn.

Huge Thanks to Gordon

Had a really pleasant two night stay at Brora last week. On our first morning on-site we woke up to a flat tyre. i found Gordon and Christine and asked about any local tyre suppliers/fitters in the area. Without hesitation, Gordon was there with trolley jack and torque wrench to whip the old tyre off and fit the spare - which turned out to be not entirely straightforward, the fact that we were on a grass pitch not helping. Once that was done we drove down to Tain and had excellent service from Godsman Tyres - so minor crisis averted. We spent the rest of the day on Brora Beach which is stunning. Once again, massive thanks to Gordon for going above and beyond the call of duty.

Brilliant site and already booked for 2022

This was our 7th or 8th stay at Brora so you know we like it! Gordon and Christine are great ambassadors for the club, always eager to help and ensure your stay goes well. The are excellent site managers and ensure the facilities are always up to a high standard. Site is for the quiet and peaceful stay seekers. Beach and general countryside are spectacular and all within an easy drive - the beach 5 mins away over the Golf course. We (rather I ) did manage to miss the local fish sales that come every Wednesday! Local stores include a very well stocked Coop and a super butcher in Golspie. Local general store has racks and racks of last minute fix category.The ambiance of the site has changed, not for the better IMHO, with the number of visitors who stay for one night increasing dramatically over the years. The transient nature for many reduces much of the CAMC community culture.

THE ULTIMATE PEACE AND QUIET SITE

If you want tranquility look no further. Tucked way off the road beside a golf course (through which you can access the fabulous beach in 5 minutes) this is one of our favourite places. You get a choice of hard standing or grass and you only hear the birds and the occasional passing train. (Except one morning at 6.30am when my neighbour set off his car alarm! But we all make mistakes!) One improvement from our last visit was the perimeter road round the site had been repaired. If you like a curry Sids Spice in Brora does an excellent take-away. The place is very well looked after. Not a place where there is all that much to do locally other than walk and bird-watch but Dunrobin Castle is a must see. Not great for families with small children. Great place.

Top Site Top Wardens

We arrived on site after a torturous journey which involved my brand new Bailey Adamo’s sunroof exploding open as a truck passed us requiring us to go to Aberdeen to temp fix. When we arrived, finally, on the Brora site we were amazed what a fantastic site. Beautiful surroundings. Beach on your doorstep. Spotlessly clean everywhere. Superb site looked after superbly by Gordon & Christine who went well out of their way and exceeded our expectations with the help offered to make our motorhome more safe for the rest of our holidays. Much appreciated guys thank you so much. 👏🏻👏🏻
