Whether a fisherman or not Braelangwell offers something for everyone. Walking in the Strath is outstanding, providing magnificent views and frequent sightings of golden eagle, red squirrels, deer, buzzards, peregrine to name but a few and perhaps even an elusive otter.
The east coast is only a short drive from the Lodge and a visit to Dornoch Beach is a must for old and young alike. A drive to the west coast is highly recommended for its awe-inspiring beauty and now that the roads are much improved it is an easy day trip.
For those who enjoy bird watching a week at Braelangwell offers endless opportunities to see many species, often at very close quarters. The mud flats of the Dornoch Firth provide an ideal environment for many varieties of duck and wading birds. A visit to Handa Island combines the beauty of the west coast with the fascination of its unique sea bird population. A visit to Dunrobin Castle will enable you to experience Andy Hughes’ exhilarating falconry display and even the possibility of flying these magnificent birds yourself.
Dolphins, porpoises and even whales can seen in both the Cromarty and Moray Firths. A day trip to Cromarty via the ferry can frequently reward visitors with sightings from both the ferry and the beach.
