The local area & NC500

North Coast 500

The Highlands’ answer to Route 66! A large section of the North Coast 500 cuts through Sutherland and neighbouring Caithness and includes all the attractions listed below along with many others. All these examples are within a day trip from Inverbrora Farm.

Wildlife watching

From deer to seals; osprey to dolphins – if you’re lucky, you’ll see them all around Sutherland. Bottlenose dolphins often cruise by Moray Firth. The RSPB reserve at Forsinard offers marked walks through peatland and a chance to see some rare beautiful birds. The local glens around Brora are full of red deer – you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Restaurants and retail (therapy…)

There are many lovely restaurants and bars near Inverbrora. Sid’s Spice in Brora, Luigi’s in Dornoch and the Golspie Inn in Golspie are among those not to be missed. Check out the Brora Visitor Guide for lots of suggestions for shopping. A trip to Dornoch, just 20 mins away, will provide some seriously souvenir-worthy inspiration!

Walking and Cycling

We are on the LEJOG (Lands End to John O’Groats) and several other major cycle routes, but anyone can enjoy shorter cycle rides or pleasant strolls along the many beautiful beaches.
