    Situated on the east coast of Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland, just over an hour's drive north of Inverness, Brora offers a surprisingly diverse range of attractions.

There is world class links golf, salmon and trout fishing, sea fishing, deer stalking, gold panning, stunning scenery, fairy tale castles, fine beaches, hill walking, rambling, mountain biking, an abundance of wildlife, and even an exposed Jurassic rock face.

Brora is a beautiful village nestled on the shores of the Moray Firth, and there is much to see. Brora harbour, for example, is rich in history which even includes supplying salt for the herring fleets of past centuries.

There is a
remarkably rich abundance and diversity of wildlife in and around Brora within easy walking distance. Seal pups can be seen playing in the surf along the back shore, and rare birds such as ospreys can be seen if you know where to look.

Craggy hills, beautiful lochs, secluded glens, miles of sandy coastline - Brora has it all, with walks to suit everyone, from easy waymarked tracks to rugged hill walks to challenge even the most experienced of walkers.

There are many local family attractions that provide wonderful days out which everyone can enjoy. For example, there is the spectactular Dunrobin Castle just 10 minutes drive away, where you can be enthralled and entertained by live falconry displays.

Shin Falls is only half an hour's drive, and includes a viewing area where you can watch salmon leaping the waterfalls when they're running. Shin Falls also serves good food in the nearby restaurant. If you enjoy golf, Brora is probably the least known and yet perhaps the truest test of classic links golf in Scotland, and Royal Dornoch is only 20 minutes drive.
