More information about Strath Brora View

Property information

Strath Brora View is a remarkable contemporary designed and extremely spacious house which very comfortably accommodates 8 people. It is situated in the small crofting community of Badnellan. A minor road runs west for a mile from the village to the house, then to Loch Brora, a mile or so further on. The East coast of Sutherland is one of Scotland's best kept secrets, perhaps overshadowed by the better known west. Generally a warmer and drier climate, stunning beaches, fine golf courses and some of the remotest and quietest glens and straths in the whole of Britain. Brora is an historic picturesque coastal village with a small harbour, an ideal base for exploring what's on offer and only one hour from the Highland capital of Inverness. In Brora you will find all the facilities needed to meet your holiday requirements from good shops to cafe's and restaurants. There are great opportunities for cycling or walking days and the fabulous West coast mountains of Assynt can be reached for a challenging day of hill climbing. It would be possible to rise early and head north for a day sailing to the Orkney Islands and take one of the archaeological tour buses to Skara Brae and Maes Howe - both spectacular. The coastline heading North is a reminder of the controversial Highland Clearances, with remains of the old crofting cottages clinging to the very edges of the cliffs. It was to here that the people of Sutherland were driven to make way for more profitable sheep. Within walking distance of the house is Brora Heritage Centre, a fascinating museum where the rich history of the area is displayed and documented. However, for those coming to rest and recuperate, the house and its immediate environs will more than meet your needs without travelling very far at all. Just let the east-coast slow pace seep into your bones for a truly recuperative holiday.
