Brough Bay is situated at the base of Dunnet Head and is the home of a resident seal colony. The Bay was used for landing materials when the Dunnet Head lighthouse was being constructed and you can still see remains of some of the winch equipment which was used to pull boats out of the water.
The Bay is a great site for diving, kayaking, fishing or just relaxing in a quiet spot with a barbecue or picnic. There are some great walks in the area – route cards are available from our web site. There is a small pier and a boat park, the latter the property of the trading arm of the Dunnet Head Educational Trust. We ask that you leave the site tidy, do not block the slipway and follow the country code.
The owners of part of the Bay have adopted it under the Marine Conservation Society. You can contact us for further information.
