There’s plenty to discover about the fascinating surroundings of Inverbrora Farm!
Inverbrora Farm facts
- This working livestock farm is home to over 160 dairy cows and a resident Hereford bull called Vegas
- Inverbrora’s farmland extends to around 240 acres, from the edge of the River Brora, across the A9/NC500, to the coast, including a stunning Jurassic beach
- Our land also incorporates Inverbrora SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest)
Inverbrora SSSI encompasses three parts, two of which are on the banks of the River Brora at the back of the farm. The third is on the shore near the outflow of the River Brora, across the A9. The site features nationally important stretches of Jurassic rock, dating back to between 156-168 million years ago. The rocks you’ll see there today span three geological time periods which is equivalent to 30 million years. The Inverbrora SSSI is also recognised for its many fossilised plant remains.
Another part of Inverbrora SSSI – at the mouth of the River Brora – includes the Moray Firth Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The area is made up of subtidal sandbanks – home to bottlenose dolphins among other species.
The village is just over a mile along the A9 from the farm entrance. Brora has everything you might need during your trip including fuel, shops, tourism sites and a fabulous sandy beach.
Great dining options include the Royal Marine Hotel restaurant, the Sutherland Inn, the Red Dragon Chinese take-away, and a truly superb Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant called Sid’s Spice. The Co-op supermarket is well-stocked for any essentials or picnic items you might need. There are a number of smaller sit-in food options, including a lovely cafe next to the station and specialising in chocolate called Cocoa Skye. For a more comprehensive list of options and location map, see the Brora visitor website food page.
After you’ve had your foodie fill, Brora’s beautiful harbour makes for the perfect evening stroll, with working fishing boats featuring alongside the original old village. Brora Golf Club looks out onto miles of soft golden sand with some stunning coastal views. The area is home to a wide range of birds and wildlife.
What we ask of guests
With just the two of us looking after both the B&B and the farm, we need to be quite strict with our time. We ask that guests let us know what time they expect to arrive and to keep this to between 5pm and 8pm, unless otherwise agreed in advance. We also request that guests vacate their room no later than 11am each day.
To ensure safety at all times, it is particularly important that guests do not venture into any farm buildings, enter any fields containing livestock or attempt to open any closed gates. If you are unsure of anything, please just get in touch. We’re always happy to help!
