Our Impressions of Dudgeon Park
Although the outbuildings and social club are new, things go a bit downhill once through the turnstile. The seated stand is a flimsy looking wooden affair with the dressing rooms underneath, and the other side of the pitch has a tin roofed terrace with cinder floor, which feels very agricultural! The ground is walled and the pitch is fenced off. The pitch itself is large, but was bobbly and uneven. The floodlights are unusual in that there are 4 high poles and 2 short poles down each flank, but the light they produce is a bit gloomy, to say the least. There is a good view of the mountains though!
There is a club shop in the village, and they will take mail order for badges and other souvenirs. There are no programmes produced, although a team sheet for both sides is printed and handed out in the bar beforehand.
Directions to Dudgeon Park
There is only one road in or out of Brora, being the A9 from Inverness or Wick. From Inverness, cross the Kessock Bridge and follow the A9 across the Black Isle, Cromarty Firth and through the villages of Alness, Embo and Golspie. As you enter Brora on a sweeping left hand bend, you will see the ground on the right, just past Hunters Mills Woolen Goods Outlet. Plenty of parking at the ground.
Follow A9 south and turn off into Dudgeon Park Road just before exiting the village.
There is a railway station in Brora, but it only served infrequently. (Try www.scotrail.com for details)
Buses are non-existent apart from the Inverness-Wick Scottish Citylink buses.
