**SELF CATERING COTTAGE** Situated about a mile and a half outside the village of Brora on the coast and adjacent to miles of sandy beach and James Braid's famous links golf course with world renowned Royal Dornoch only 18 miles away. There is an abundance of birds and wild life and wonderful walks with plenty interesting places to visit. It is a good base for visits to Orkney, the west coast, the Black Isle and the mountains of Sutherland. There is a distillery in the village where the famous Clynelish Whisky is distilled. Dunrobin Castle is only a few miles south, a beautiful castle with wonderful gardens and daily falconry displays. The late Queen Mother's home at The Castle of Mey is only an hour north and well worth a visit. Dolphin cruises available at Portmahomack.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We have just returned from a week in The Paddock, Brora. The location is perfect, a short walk from both the golf course and the beach. The views from the cottage of the beautiful Highland landscape are even better. The owners were very helpful and friendly and the cottage perfectly equipped. We would highly recommend this property.

Stayed at The Paddock for a week and used it as a base while we toured the North of Scotland. Great location just two minutes walk away from the beach, very well equipped property, good views from the bedrooms, very open and spacious floor plan. Big rear garden enclosed so our wee dog can suit himself. We would recommend this property in a heart beat. Owners stay just opposite from the house incase you need any help or advice. Thanks for letting us stay Dawn, really enjoyed it. 5 🌟

We were four adults staying at The Paddock for six nights Ideal location for the beach and travelling around the area The beds were comfortable The living space and kitchen were spacious and well stocked There was a laundry room with both a washer and dryer The place was clean and warm with a beautiful view. The only issue that could have been improved upon were the sofas which were uncomfortable We enjoyed our stay at The Paddock and would recommend it to others

We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. It was particularly nice to be so close to the beach -- we had plenty of beach time with our Labrador, collecting shells & taking photos of the seals that had come in quite near the beach to check us out. If you have a Scotland bucket list, there's much that can be checked off -- not too far to catch a ferry to Orkney, distillery tours, and reasonable drives to many other places. The house itself was excellent -- very spacious, and well-maintained & clean. All of the beds were comfortable. Three seating areas, if you're a large group and needing to give yourselves some space apart. Large kitchen with everything you need.

Had a spectacular week staying here. We caught a break with some excellent weather but regardless its a beautiful part of the highlands and the accommodation is perfectly situated to make the most of the wonderful views.The house comfortably slept 7 of us and was big enough that we never felt on top of each other. Children especially loved the huge back garden and its a 2 minute walk from a beautiful beach which we practically had to ourselves. Special mention to Robert and Dawn who live over the road who were very friendly and particularly helpful with local knowledge when our car broke down. Would highly recommend this as a family holiday destination.
