Borrobol has much to enjoy.

Activities

    • Fly fishing for wild brown trout from a rowing boat on Loch Ascaig during the season. There is also seasonal fishing along the five mile River Friadh (‘Free’), a spate tributary of the River Helmsdale, fishable when there is enough water.
    • Canoeing and Kayaking on Loch Ascaig.
    • Swimming from the small, sandy beach on Loch Ascaig where the shallow water is ideal for small children. Or drive to the famous white sands of the north coast.
    • Bicycling on the five mile estate track to the deserted west end of Borrobol (bicycles not supplied).
    • Walking
    • Archaeology. Borrobol has many remains from the early stone age onwards.
    • Bird watching. Borrobol is a migration crossroads for unusual species, often in noisy flocks. Many prized moorland species nest here.

This part of Sutherland is a haven for migrating and resident moorland birds.
