Local Area Information

Croit Bhraigh (Croft on the Brae in English) is nestled in the Scottish Highlands in the parish of Rogart.

Here you will enjoy gorgeous panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and wildlife (be sure to look out for some of the many pheasants and deer we have).

The parish of Rogart is a quaint, typically small, Scottish village but still has all the essentials for thirsty walkers or hungry families.

Thirsts can be quenched and rumbling tummies can be quieted in the local pub, The Pittentrail Inn, which offers hot delicious food and long, cold drinks.

Looking to take advantage of Croit Bhraigh's fully equipped, modern kitchen, and cook up something for yourselves?

Then pop into the local Spar shop and stock up on all your culinary needs.

Rogart can boast of being the birth place to Canada's very first prime minister and the parish has honoured him with a cairn erected in his memory, which is free to visit.

We also have a beautiful ice age river called the Fleet which has good sized brown trout and salmon, for the anglers amongst you.  Permits are a necessity and are available at the local Spar shop in the village.

 

Feel like stretching your legs and seeing what else there is on offer? Well all these and more are almost at your door step.

 

Dunrobin Castle is 9 miles/14 km away and really should be seen as it really is a fantastic castle set in pristine grounds.

Whisky connoisseurs can indulge in a “nip” or two at Glenmorangie Distillery near Tain (18 miles/28 km) and Clynelish Distillery, Brora (14 miles/23 km). If you do pop through to Brora be sure to try to and spot some seals but be on the lookout as they can be quiet shy.

The Highland Wildcat Mountain Bike Trails in Golspie (8 miles/12km) is well worth the short cycle or drive.

Looking for a day trip then head on over to Shin Falls (16 miles/25 km) to see salmon leap up the impressive falls, on their way to spawn.

Looking for fun at the beach then Sutherland's ancient county town, Dornoch, (12 miles/19 km) has safe, clean, sandy beaches, ideal for walks or picnics.

 

Rest assured that when you stay at Croit Bhraigh you will be staying in one of the most beautiful countryside’s in the UK with plenty to keep you busy, or a cosy place to unwind and watch the world go by.
