Brora Campsite and Brora Golf Club Review
Situated on the east coast of Sutherland, Brora is an often overlooked stop on the NC500. It’s beach rivals that of Dornoch and visitors can sometimes have it to themselves. The Brora Camping and Caravanning Club site is located at the north of the village and has direct access to the Brora Golf course. From there, it is permitted to walk over the golf course, through the machair onto the beach. Be careful as you do so, as Brora is one of the few golf course in the world where sheep and cattle are allowed to roam free! The greens are protected by low voltage electric wires, so be sure not to let your dog too close otherwise they might be in for a nasty shock.
The Brora campsite wardens are extremely friendly and happy to chat about what to do around the area and keep you right if you need any assistance with your campervan. There are plenty of toilets and showers on site with the added bonus of a normal shower mixer tap. From the campsite you can cycle up past the Clynelish Distillery towards Loch Brora and beyond, which has some stunning scenery. On the way back, take the road back into Brora, where you can pick up some lunch at the famous Harry Gow’s bakery or grab a bite to eat at the Sutherland Arms.
