Sorry. No dogs
A quiet and secluded Highland cottage which has just been tastefully renovated and standing in a wonderful position overlooking Loch Knockie – a real hidden gem.
We had a great time and the cottage is stunning! Everything fits so well, the house, the interior styling and the location. Coupled with the beauty and tranquillity of the surroundings it is as close to a bit of heaven on earth as you are likely to get.James Henderson, Scottish Borders Just to say thanks for a wonderful week at Brachkashie. We fell in love with the Loch and the quiet pace of Highland life. We spent a whole day on the Loch and had champagne and sausages by the water! We’ll be back! Mr Tim McDonnell, Hampshire, UK

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!

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.

We had such a great time, walking, fishing, eating and drinking. What a beautiful cottage and so tastefully decorated, the location was perfect and we managed to snap some great photos whilst enjoying the outdoors on our first family holiday with our daughter. I'm sure it will not be the last holiday with Goldsmiths!
