Brachkashie is a charming 3 bedroom Highland cottage with magnificent views overlooking Loch Knockie. Trout fishing and a rowing boat is included in the rental during the season.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Brachkashie Cottage. It was like living in a House Beautiful magazine and I have returned home inspired to redecorate our own home much to my husband’s annoyance. He has returned home determined to take up rowing! Liz & family, April 2017

Stalking Red deer stalking during the main stalking season September/October can be arranged, subject to availability on several nearby estates. Hind stalking in November, December and January can also be arranged.
Salmon fishing Salmon fishing can be arranged on the nearby River Findhorn, River Oich and River Ness.
Golf Fort Augustus, just 8 miles away has an 18 hole course which runs alongside the Caledonian Canal. The new and wonderful Championship links course of Castle Stuart is only an hour’s drive from Brachkashie.
There is lots to do and see in the local area including the most famous loch in the world, Loch Ness!
The charming village of Fort Augustus is just 8 miles away and is worth a visit. The main attraction is watching the boats come through Locks on the Caledonian Canal before entering Loch Ness. There are several pubs and places to eat including the The Lovat Arms Hotel.
Closeby in the small hamlet of Whitebridge, just 2.5 miles, the Whitebridge Hotel offers very good bar meals and has a good atmosphere. A good place to meet some of the locals! The Dores Inn, which is situated at Dores, provides very good meals and is situated right on the shores of Loch Ness, on the way to Inverness.
There are wonderful walks nearby and Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland is only 45 minutes drive away at Fort William, along with a number of other accessible munros. Take a drive along the Great Glen passing by Loch Oich and Loch Lochy to Loch Linnhe where it enters the sea on the west coast, is worth a trip.
The west coast including the Isle of Skye, Plockton, Kyle of Lochalsh, Mallaig are all accessible by car and within 1.5 – 2 hours drive.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at Brachkashie Cottage. It was like living in a House Beautiful magazine and I have returned home inspired to redecorate our own home much to my husband’s annoyance. He has returned home determined to take up rowing!
