About Brora Development Trust

Home/About Brora Development Trust

Brora Development Trust was formed in 2013 by local people passionate to establish a grass-roots approach to making our community a better place to live, work and play.

Brora Development Trust helps facilitate social, economic and environmental growth in Brora and the district of Clyne, through its various projects, including the Discover Brora initiative. It has a volunteer Board of Trustees and currently employs a full time Development Officer and part time Visitor Information Officer.

Other projects currently include: the development of a youth project through Brora Youth partnership; Happy School Holidays project providing grocery vouchers during school holidays for children and young people in Early Years, primary and secondary education in Brora; support for two food share units in Brora, at Brora Village Hub and The Annex at Brora Community Centre; improvements to pedestrian signage in Brora village centre; and running the Otter’s Couch, an arts and crafts social enterprise providing earning opportunities for over 40 local people.

The Discover Brora initiative was created by a group of local volunteers who are passionate about Brora and the community they live in. The information point and website have been designed to provide helpful information for visitors and act as a platform for all local businesses to promote themselves.

The website site has information about local attractions, things to do in Brora, places to eat and stay. There’s a busy events page too with a detailed calendar of what’s on in Brora which is the product of contributions by local groups and organisations.

The website is however an organic and ever evolving entity and not a completely finished, well polished website, so we ask for your understanding as the site grows. Local businesses are adding their details to the listings pages and continue to do so. This website truly is ‘by the community, for the community’.

Brora Development Trust is the known as name for Brora and District Action Group. Brora Development Trust is a  Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SC043968).
