Description

This excellent holiday cottage in the village of Brora is a spacious and comfortable property for the entire family to enjoy. Brora is on the A9 North Coast 500 route, on the east coast of Scotland. It is a charming village that often gets overlooked. Spend a little time here and you’ll fall head over heels for the place. It has a warm and welcoming community that invites you into great pubs and restaurants, an excellent golf course and club awaits, and who can resist the long sandy beach?
This holiday property has lots of space for the family to relax in two living rooms. The main living room has a wood burner and large Smart TV with entertainment packages. The second living room is more of a quiet, chill-out space. The kitchen is open plan with the dining room and there’s a useful utility room too. Upstairs there are spacious bedrooms to cater for the entire family. The garden is enormous and is fully enclosed, ideal for the whole family, including dogs.
Brora really is a perfect place to spend a week or two. You have truly outstanding Scottish Highlands scenery on your doorstep, as well as wild and empty sandy beaches to explore. To the north, Helmsdale with its famous salmon river is nearby, and you can follow this inland to one of the most dramatic open expanses found in all of Europe. You’ll see golden eagles, red deer, pine martens and even sea eagles on every adventure you take here. Further north, crossing the interior you can reach the north coast of Scotland and explore outstanding coastal scenery at Strathy Point. There’s even the option if you wish to nip across to Orkney for a day trip, to the lovely port of Stromness, sailing from Scrabster near Thurso. To the south is well know resort of Dornoch with its huge sandy beach and royal links golf course. The Black Isle is worth exploring too, along with many restaurants and local food and drink providers. The bright lights of Inverness are not too far away either if you want a bit of culture and shopping. Beach 500 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
