Description

Lovely old traditional croft house situated in the small elevated hamlet of Badnellan two miles from the coastal town of Brora with the spectacular combination of mountain and panoramic sea views across the Dornoch and Moray Firths. Dorus Dearg ("Red Door") was built in 1881 and has been in our family since the mid 1930's. Over the years it has been refurbished and enlarged sympathetically to its present comfortable condition. A double and a twin bedroom, both with wash basins, and an outside annexe with twin beds, allow accommodation for up to 6 guests. There is a sitting room with an open fire and dining area with bay window from which to enjoy the scenery. There is one bathroom, with bath and shower and a good kitchen. The whole property is in good order and stands in its own several acres of woodland and pasture. Well positioned for walking, fishing, bird watching, golf and the beach this is an ideal location for family, sporting and recreational holidays. fishing

Sea fishing is also easily arranged. Even if you are not too successful with your catches, the surrounding magical countryside more than makes up for it! Birdlife is plentiful, with both inland native species and large numbers of sea birds at shore and sea-loch. The local golf links in Brora is a well laid out course in a magnificent setting overlooking the sea and only a few minutes drive away. Brora is one of several attractive towns on the UK's most north-easterly coastline linked by the A9 from Inverness to the south and John O'Groats to the north. There is a working harbour, variety of shops including a well stocked supermarket and several restaurants and cafes. There is even an Italian ice cream parlour dating from the second world war! The golf course and harbour are both a short walk from the town centre. Weekly bookings Sunday to Sunday or short breaks by arrangement.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

As well as Caithness to the north and east, Sutherland has North Sea (Dornoch Firth) coastline in the east, the former county of Ross and Cromarty to the south, and Atlantic coastline in the west and north. Like its southern neighbour, Wester Ross, Sutherland has some of the most dramatic scenery in the whole of Europe. The whole county is accessible from the property and a day trip across remote rugged and sparsely populated landscape to the west coast is well worth getting up early for!

Brora

Owing to its isolation from the rest of the country, Sutherland was reputedly the last haunt of the native wolf, the last survivor being shot in the 18th century. However, other wild life has survived, including the golden eagle, sea eagle and pine marten amongst other species which are very rare in the rest of the country. There are pockets of the native Scots Pine, remnants of the original Caledonian Forest. Dunrobin Castle is five miles south just outside Golspie and although dating back to the 14th century is now a fine example of Scottish baronial architecture. It is well preserved inside including an interesting museum and restaurant and the gardens are superb. The Clynleish Distillary
just 2 miles from the croft is also worth visiting. Loch Brora a few miles further down the road is spectacular and a lovely picnic spot.
