Very nice site a short walk across a golf course to a vast and beautiful almost deserted beach. You can walk just over a mile along the beach into Brora where there are pubs, food, cafes Etc. After dark you will need to come back via the road, which is a bit further.

Staff were welcoming and the site is good value for members. Facilities were good although showers were a bit small and lacked enough shelves/hooks to place things. There were plastic stools in the showers.

We found TV reception poor but got a few channels.

What a lovely site. Spotlessly clean and the warden was so helpful. Beautiful beach. You can walk across the golf course to the village, which is much shorter and ok in daylight, but wouldn't want to do it in the dark. We walked in the road way and it was a long trek. Amazing Indian, Sid's ??, if you can be bothered to walk.

We had booked this site in advance a few days earlier from another campsite, The site access road can be easy to miss from the main road when heading North, due to poor signposting, so check map for details before setting off, Its down a narrow road with passing places only. Once there, we found it to be a beautiful well organized site, as per CC standards, staff were pleasant and helpful. Choose your pitch and let the staff know, cheap at 22 per night, and the site was lovely and peaceful, not really a lot for children to do on site. Mind you its only 500yds from the beautiful sand dunes and deserted beach, family with kids could spend the day there, weather permitting. Back to the site which has a nice layout, small, but very clean Toilet and showers. The Water points and Waste Recycling areas are very neat and tidy, grass areas are cut on a regular basis, and TV signal was fine, my 3 mobile signal was hit and miss, basic goods can be bought on site, but nearby town of Brora has a Co-op and hardware store, and eating places, the town can also be accessed from the site by walking along the beautiful beach, approx 15 mins/1 mile from site. It really makes a relaxing break, so tranquil and away from it all. You can use the site as a base to tour further North to Wick and John'o'Groats (also accessible by Train from Brora Station) or head to the scenic West over to Loch Torridon etc. The first part of our Holiday had been marred by wet weather etc, but coming up to this lovely relaxing site, really made such a difference, my wife and I hope to return one day, and highly recommend this site.

This was our first visit to Brora C. C. And used it as a base from which to explore the area.

The site itself was well maintained. Our only disappointment was some dog fouling on the site and along the walk to the beach. A reflection on irresponsible dog owners and not on the wardens! Perfect location for dog owners though for walking and exercising their pets.

Facilities were always nice and clean with plenty hot water but showers have a disappointing lack of pressure. Poor mobile and wi-fi reception but tv reception was fine.

We were informed that CC has a policy that wardens are not on call after 8pm except for emergencies. Without going into details, it highly adviseable for campers and caravanners to adhere to this!

Had a lovely takeaway from Sid's Spices in town. There is a really good Co-op supermarket. The falls of Shin are worth a visit. Salmon were leaping in June! A visit to John o' Groats was disappointing. Although it has the potential to be a great tourist attraction, it seemed quite commercialised and some weed killer wouldn't go amiss in the shopping areas.

The only reason I gave child friendliness a score of four was because there is no specific play area on site. This doesn't mean that parents would not be happy to bring there children here as it is a very safe area.

Access to this site is over a narrow railway bridge, for large caravans and motorhomes, access is through the hamlet of Dalchalm.

The wardens are extremely friendly, great ambassadors for The Caravan Club. They keep the site in excellent shape, however the Caravan Club need to spend money on updating the shower blocks. The water pressure in the showers is unacceptable. Also, wifi would be a welcome addition.

A path through the adjoining golf course takes you onto the beach, be aware though that the golf course has sheep and cattle, so dogs must be kept under control. However, once on the beach, there are miles of sand to enjoy, just keep away from the nesting terns.

This is a jewel in the Caravan Club crown, but they need to spend some money on the toilet blocks to keep it this way.

This is not the first time we have visited this site and have never been disappointed. The only issue that has changed is the increasing number of irresponsible dog owners who allow their dogs to foul empty pitches, disturb other campers by continuous barking and not keeping their pets under control. As a caravan club member this is becoming an increasing problem on most club sites and is about time the caravan club should revisit their dog policy or at least enforce it.
