“An absolutely first class experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The entire experience was fantastic from the very beginning. Enquiry about booking was met with a very quick and friendly response. When we arrived we were delighted by the idyllic setting in gorgeous farmland. The farmhouse itself is large and spacious with comfortable rooms and facilities. The distillery right next door was also a big plus for whisky lovers.

Our host was wonderful, going out of her way to make us feel at home, giving us great recommendations for places to visit and activities to do nearby. Each night a welcoming fire was waiting for us and each morning we had a delicious home-cooked breakfast. Really amazing hospitality.

The countryside around Brora was wonderfully peaceful and further afield was beautifully untamed. We were never bored, but left well rested, and enriched for the experience.

Overall, the trip was a truly wonderful, thanks in very large part to our choice to stay at Clynelish Farm.

Staying at Clynelish Farm was such an extraordinary experience that I don’t even know what to start with. So maybe start with the place itself? Clynelish Farm is a nineteenth century (1865) house that belonged to high-classes together with large surrounding terrain. It looks marvelous and sits surrounded by fields, farms and animals (hares and deers are a commonplace in the area) and has Clynelish whisky distillery as a neighbour, who actually owns the house and rents it to current landlords. The house is really big and quite many rooms are available for guests. On top of the rooms that we stayed at, there was a living room with a fireplace which was a perfect place for the evening and a separate dining room for breakfast with wonderful view to the surrounding fields and hares running by. The landlords are a super friendly and caring couple – an Australian girl, Victoria and her Scottish husband, whose name we didn’t learn. They run a huge sheep and cattle farm and a B&B as a side business, which you couldn’t tell, as the level of preparation, friendliness and openness to cater to all our needs was extraordinary. The choice for breakfast was more than you would expect from a B&B and the quality was there as well. After breakfast we asked if we could see the farm and Victoria took us to see the baby lambs that were just born a few days before – truly amazing. To cut the long story short – if you’re looking for a truly magic experience in northern Scotland, this is a place for you, and a place we would come back to without any hesitation.

A proper B and B. All the usuals done well: food, comfortable bed, clean house, etc. Jane and Murdo were truly excellent hosts; most engaging and able to offer so much information about the area as they've farmed in Brora for over thirty years. A lovely old farmhouse with beautiful gardens; one of the few B and Bs I'd return to like a shot. As Bill Bryson famously said of Durham: "Go, take my car....."
