Another of the North East coast villages that look over the North Sea on the A9. 

Brora sits at the mouth of the River Brora which, as everywhere on this coast, is the site of a once-lucrative salmon netting industry. At the harbour, the ice house is a relic of the herring boom. Coal mines, opened in the 16th century, salt pans and a brickworks are all defunct. Still very much alive, however, is Hunter's, the local weavers of heavyweight traditional tweeds, and a good place to invest in some natty headwear. A mile or so north of town is the Clynelish distillery. Info - Easter-Sep Mon-Fri 1000-1700, Oct 1100-1600, Nov-Easter by appointment, £4, Tel. 623000. Castle Cole in lovely Strath Brora, eight miles northwest, is one of several ruined brochs. Another, Carn Liath (signposted), is by the main road, three miles south of Brora.

Travel Directions to Brora

You can drive by the A9 or use the lovely North of Scotland railway that provides a highly uneconomic lifeline to these isolated communities.

Nearby Ancient Monuments

  • Carn Liath Broch

    Excavated in the 1980s to its present state. Bronze and iron age on the coast north of Golspie. Large circulcar broch that is well worth a quick explore on a striking site beside the coast.
