Built in 1821. Perfect for exploring the Scottish Highlands and the NC500.

Welcome to our Highland B&B!

We are Sarah and Gavin Millar-Stuart, owners of this lovely working livestock farm near Brora, east Sutherland.

At the heart of Inverbrora, surrounded by cows, sits a characterful Grade ‘B’ listed Georgian farmhouse designed by George Alexander. Built in 1821 from local Clynelish granite, the house currently offers four charming rooms for bed and breakfast.

Inverbrora enjoys truly stunning and tranquil surroundings. On our doorstep are magnificent, unspoilt beaches featuring regular appearances from seals, otters, oyster catchers, bottlenose dolphins and the occasional minke whale!

We’re also perfectly situated next to the A9 for access to the famous North Coast 500 (NC500).

Based just under a mile from Brora, the B&B serves as a fantastic base from which to explore beautiful Sutherland for a few days. It’s equally convenient as a single-night stopover for visitors en route to, or from, ferries to the historic Orkney Isles. Inverness airport offers easy access to global air routes, just over an hour away.

Free WiFi


Amidst all this accessibility, Inverbrora enjoys an unexpectedly and particularly peaceful spot between the River Brora and the North Sea.


Inverbrora has four B&B rooms named after iconic locations on the NC500. Fleet and Hope offer family and twin en suite accommodation, while Smoo and Shin are double and twin rooms sharing a private shower room.

How to find us

Getting to Inverbrora B&B is easy! Just make sure you do not use our postcode to follow sat nav directions because there are many different addresses in the Doll area which have the same postcode as us. If you follow the hassle-free directions below, you’ll quickly find us.

From the south

From Golspie, follow the A9 north east towards Brora. Ignore any sat nav directions which tell you to turn left into the Doll area – you need to come further north east than that. Once you’ve passed the Doll turn off, you’ll shortly see large blue ‘P’ (450 yds) sign to notify you of the parking lay-by beyond the farm turn off. Get ready to turn left at the white and black Inverbrora Farm sign (pictured opposite), about a mile before the village of Brora. Take your time while turning into the farm road, as it’s a 90 degree angle off the main A9 road.

From the north

Once you reach the village of Brora, continue south west on the A9 for just under one mile. Sat nav may tell you to continue along the A9 on to the Doll – ignore this, as you may miss the farm turn off. After you pass a large lay-by overlooking our fields on the right, you will shortly approach the Inverbrora Farm sign (pictured opposite). Sharp turn right down the farm road.

Arriving at Inverbrora Farmhouse

The house is surrounded by trees and is not immediately visible from the main A9, or farm road. As you drive down the farm road you will pass a large pond on your right, followed by the trees. Look out for the grey slate B&B sign on your left (pictured). It will point you towards the gravel car park at the front of the house, accessed via a sharp right turn through a painted white gate (pictured opposite). Please do not continue straight down the farm road towards Inverbrora cottage, as the cottage is not part of the farm.

When you see this sign on your left, turn right

What3words precise location

You can pinpoint the precise location of our front door using the app. Go to to download the free W3W app. Type in the three words “planting.blacken.hoping” – a unique 3mx3m reference – and it will offer you the option to navigate there via a number of options, including Google and Apple maps.

If you are a visitor from outside the UK, please remember to drive on the left hand side of the road – this is particularly important on the many single carriageway roads around the Highlands.
