“Haste ye back to Brora!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed at The Paddock for 7 nights in June 2014. The Paddock is adjacent to The Croft and has ample parking space for 3 cars. The location is perfect, at the end of a long cul-de-sac and where there are grazing fields for sheep/cows adjoining the links golf course and onwards to the beach.

The Powells looked after us very well indeed. The house is perhaps from the 70s and is very spacious, especially downstairs. The floor plan is charming with a functional kitchen-diner and a small library/reading room along with a large 'salon'. There's plenty of room for a large group for guests to spread themselves out and get peace and quiet if desired.

We had wonderfully warm weather and there's a charming garden with patio table and chairs and we even fired up the BBQ!

There are 2 TVs and Wifi, however, as this is a beautiful remote location where peace and tranquility is the order of the day we didn't watch TV much as it seemed to ruin the calm!

The upstairs floorplan is adequate with the possibility for 3 doubles (including 2 x twin options) and with 1 large bathroom. There is a shower room/WC downstairs adjacent to the utility room.

The only downside and indeed the only noise was from the internal plumbing however we organised ourselves so that no one 'flushed' during the night and no showers early in the morning. This however did not detract at all from our enjoyment and we would still stay again.

The Powells were very attentive and thoughtful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Tips:
- Annual Brora Village Fete (June 2014)
- Coastal drive to Durness (long but worth it)
- Visit Dunrobin Castle (falconry, gardens, cafe, great gift shop)
- Visit Golspie (charming little village with the Burns)
- Visit the Geology Centre at Golspie, it's free and the semi-precious exhibits are wonderful
- Visit the Castle of Mey in Caithness (owned by the late Queen Mother)
- Visit Helmsdale
- Spend a day locally, do the Brora Heritage Walk and visit the local shops
- Visit the Loth Train Station Antiques Shop
- Visit the Marina Hotel for a sundowner and sit outside in the Garden Room
- Visit Clynelish Distillery

SHOPPING: Buy groceries at Inverness Airport/Business Retail Centre/Tescos as there is a greater choice than what's on offer locally.

This was our 2nd visit to the area and we visited the Heritage Centre to trace some family history. We found everyone in Brora to be very helpful and friendly and there is a real sense that Brora is at a crossroads - there's some wonderful history here and a great stop on route to the Northern Highlands.
