 Site - Easy to find, but take care on approach over narrow stone railway bridge. Busy site as so convenient to road. There is a circle of grass pitches, with hardstandings around the edge and along a 'pan handle' with a couple of very nice grass pitches at the end, although these would be a fair way from the facilities. Talking of fairways, along one side of the site is Brora golf course, which is very busy at weekends, there is a signed path across the course which leads to a fabulous beach which stretches for miles. When I was there Artic Terns were nesting on the beach and care was advised - they're the ones that attack you if you get too close to their nests - you can just walk in the other direction. The pitches are divided by grass strips, and the water point and chemical disposal is sited in the central grass area, to one side, which means having to walk between two caravans with water containers and loos. Also has a small grass area for tents. Basically a good site badly let down by showers.

Wardens - were friendly and helpful and always seemed to be busy but available

Dog Walk - there is a dog walk running the length of the site on the other side of a small hump, all grass, between the site and the golf course, good for an early morning/late evening quickie, but the beach and dunes are only a couple of minutes away.

Washrooms - Just the one, but it is not a very big site, so adequate. The showers were the worst I have encountered on a club site. 4 Showers, with a fixed head, which can swivel, a couple of the heads were floppy, so couldn't be directed. You would turn on the shower and it would start to drip, after some time water would start to come through, but very weak, and if another shower was turned on it got weaker, luckily I wasn't in there with all 4 running. It was difficult to adjust the temperature and got quite hot. The showering area is large enough, but drying area small and not enough hooks.

One morning I showered at 7. 45 and it was freezing, both radiators were cold. Definitely not up to CC standards.

 To Find Site:- Just north of Brora on A9 turn right at Caravan Club sign on main road. The approach is narrow and involves negotiating a blind narrow bridge. Once past small commercial campsite turn left at T-junction and Club site is a little further on the right. Campers are requested not to arrive before midday to allow leavers to exit the site without meeting incoming units on the narrow approach.

This small campsite is situated just north of Brora in the Highlands and is close to the sea which can be accessed from the site, although this does involve crossing a golf course so care is required. Non-members and tent campers are also accepted. There are 52 pitches of which 33 are on hardstandings. There is one toilet block situated not far from reception and whilst of a good standard it is of the older type. It is some distance from the furthest pitches as are the service points. There are no play facilities for children. Mobile phone signal seems OK and I could get Vodafone mobile broadband but the signal is a hit and miss. If you have a WiFi signal enhancer you should be able to get BTOpenzone.

Dalchalm could be a good option for exploring this remote part of the Highlands and Dornoch is worth a visit. Brora Golf Course is adjacent to the campsite. The small town of Brora has a small supermarket and a couple of restaurants. There are two fuel stations on the A9 on the approach to the town.

 Only stayed one night on this site but as with all CC sites the facilities were up to date and clean. We were greeted by the very friendly wardens and could pick our own pitch. All pitches were quite spacious and site was very well maintained. The beach was a short walk across a golf course and was a lovely area to walk your dog/yourself and is also in a very scenic area with great views.I cannot comment on the local area due to the fact that we didn't have time, but we had a short walk around the site which looked spotlessly clean and can recommend the beach walk. We would definitely return for a longer stay.

 Agree with other reviews, very pleasant few days and enjoyed our visit to Dunrobin Castle which led us into finding out more about the history of the 'Highland Clearances' whose effects are still clearly visible.

Two notes of caution, firstly the wind became very strong and awnings had to be taken down, the site was less sheltered than we had expected.

Secondly, after coming over the single track bridge on the approach, make sure you turn left. It looks as though you are approaching the wrong campsite, but the CC site is just beyond it.

 A beautiful, peaceful site with mostly level pitches, excellent facilities and a really good location next to a golf course which is in turn next to an amazing beach. Arctic terns nesting and dive-bombing our dog. Wardens gave a friendly welcome.

Brora, the nearest town was very pleasant with a good co-op, the Sutherland Arms for very friendly service and a nice pub lunch and a sweet little cafe / florists / picture framers with a helpful proprietor who knows the area well. Had a fantastic (but not cheap!) meal at the Marine Hotel near the golf course. We'll be back.

 Arrived at Dalchalm to a warm welcome from the site managers. Because not busy were told to pick our spot. Well maintained site with shower and toilet facilities spotless.

Booked for 2 but stayed for 4 nights we enjoyed it so much. Walks to Brora along the beach were easy and once in the village there were shops pubs and small information centre.

There is a golf club in Brora we also visited the local distillery which was a pleasant walk from the site. We also visited Dunrobin castle which is well worth a visit if only for the falconery display.

Would we return the answer is a definite yes

 This is one of our favourite sites. The access road is single track and care is needed crossing the railway bridge. Peaceful location with direct access through the golf course to a large sandy beach. The toilet block is the older Caravan Club style, but spotlessly maintained. There is a mixture of grass and hardstandings. The Co-op supermarket in Brora is small, but very good. Dunrobin Castle is just down the road and trips to John O' Groats, Dunnet Head, Orkney Islands and the west coast are all accessible from here.

 Just returned from a wonderful 16 night tour around northern Scotland where we were lucky to spend two nights at Dalcham on the way up to John O'Grotes (Dunnet Bay). Everything you expect from a CC site, very clean and well presentd, extremely friendly wardens, great views over the golf course and nearby beach on the other side.

We will deffinately be travelling the 480 miles each way to return at a later date, well worth a visit!

 Lovely quiet site close to glorious sandy beach. Possible to walk to Brora along the beach, nice pub and good small supermarket. Wonderful bike ride up the valley past the distillery. Walked to Golspie (8 miles) along the beach and got the bus back - 1.95 each.
Dornoch - approx 12 miles away is a wonderful small town, great cycle track from Embo. Site is usual high CC standards, very clean and well kept. Amazing wild life - huge seals snoozing on the beach. Narrow access over railway bridge, our LMC just squeezed through!

 As usual with all Caravan Club sites very high standards. All facilities very good and very clean. Site generally level and the majority were hard standing, a few grass pitches in the middle of the site. There is a very narrow approach road over the railway line, but if you observe the access times there should be no problem with caravans leaving when you arrive. Lovely walks along the beach, access across the golf course and the walks in the surrounding area. There is stunning scenery in the local area a drive up the side of Loch Brora is beautiful or the more energetic the walk up to the top of Beinn a Bhragaidh gives great views over Sutherland. About 10Km south of the site.

Also a visit the local distillery Clynelish is a must for malt whisky lovers, shame Brora distillery closed in 1983.
