Inverbrora Farm facts
- This working livestock farm is home to over 180 dairy cows, as well as a Hereford bull whose name is Vegas.
- Inverbrora has around 240 acres of farmland which stretch from the edge of the River Brora, across the A9 to the coastline.
- Our land also incorporates a stunning Jurassic rocky beach.
There are three parts to Inverbrora Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Two of these are on the banks of the River Brora. The third is across the A9 on the shore, near the outflow of the river. The site features nationally important masses of Jurassic rock, roughly 156-168 million years old. The rock spans three geological time periods, equivalent to 30 million years. Inverbrora SSSI is also recognised for its many fossilised plant remains.
Another part of Inverbrora SSSI includes the Moray Firth Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The area is located at the mouth of the River Brora and is made up of subtidal sandbanks. These are home to bottlenose dolphins, among other species.
The village is just over a mile along the A9 from the farm accommodation. Brora has everything you might need during your trip – fuel, shops, tourist sites and a fabulous sandy beach.
Great dining options include the Royal Marine Hotel restaurant and the Sutherland Inn. Brora is also very lucky to be proud home of the truly superb Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant, Sid’s Spice. The Herald newspaper recently named it as number two in its list of the 15 best Indian restaurants in Scotland.
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 called Cocoa Skye, which specialises in chocolate. For more options and location map, see the Brora visitor website food page.
After you’ve had your foodie fill, Brora’s beautiful harbour provides the perfect evening stroll, where working fishing boats feature alongside the original old village. Brora Golf Club looks out onto miles of soft golden sand with stunning coastal views. A wide range of birds and wildlife inhabit the area.
What we ask of guests
With just two of us to look after after both the B&B and the farm, we need to be quite strict with our time. We ask that guests please advise us of their expected time of arrival and to keep this between 5pm and 8pm. Please also note that guests must vacate their room no later than 11am each day.
To ensure safety at all times, it is particularly important that guests do not enter any farm buildings, fields containing livestock or attempt to open any closed gates. We are however very happy to answer any questions guests may have.
