Guestbook comments from the owner

Have been coming up to Brora for over twenty years now and The Paddock for about 8.

It is our favourite rental property having been to many over the years.

It's main attraction being its location in Dalchalm but also the great facilities and energy of the property.

The property is fully equipped and everything that you would need provided.

Dawn and Robert are very welcoming and nothing is too much bother.

There are many beaches and country activities to enjoy, and is ideally located for exploring the Highlands and Islands whilst there.

We will definitely be returning,

Many thanks,

Simply Amazing.

We loved our stay in Brora. The Paddock is actually a very large house at the end of a road that ends in a sheep pasture. There is a view of the ocean from the second floor! And there is a view of beautiful rolling hills from the kitchen! You wake up in the morning, walk across the golf course to the seashore -- and you may find that you're the only person on a vast and beautiful beach. The house is on the 12th tee of the golf course, but if you plan to play, you still need to drive to the clubhouse. Your friendly host is right across the street if you need anything; she was so very kind to our 2-year-old boy when he wanted to play with her dogs and borrow her sand toys. This gorgeous secluded setting is ideal for all who long for a quiet getaway to the Scottish Highlands. We live in California but we left our hearts in Brora are already dreaming of going back...

Brora (Scottish Gaelic: Brùra) is a village in the east of Sutherland, in the Highland area of Scotland. The village is on the A9 road and has a railway station on the Far North Line.

A small industrial village having at one time a coal pit, boat building, fishing, salt mining, fish curing, lemonade factory, Clynelish Single Malt distillery, wool mill, bricks and a stone quarry. Stone from the quarry was used in the construction of London Bridge, Liverpool Cathedral and Dunrobin Castle. The coalmine was the farthest north coalmine in the UK. A Government Radio Receiving Station was in operation between 1940 and 1986. First town in North of Scotland to have electricity thanks to its wool industry.This distinction gave rise to the local nickname of 'Electric City' at the time. Local football club Brora Rangers was founded in 1879 and moved to present stadium, Dudgeon Park, in 1922.

Home to Capaldi's Ice Cream shop, once famous throughout the Highlands for some of the finest ice cream in Scotland. It has recently been taken over by Ross-shire baker Harry Gow.

Lots of amenities including an 18 hole Links golf course designed by James Braid in 1923 for sum of £23. Bowling and Tennis, clean beaches and associated wild life.
