The Loch Ness region
Trout fishing is available on Loch Knockie and is by 'fly only'.
Loch Knockie is in a peaceful and tranquil setting and is a haven for nature and wildlife.
Fishing season in Scotland – 15th March – 6th October.
Salmon fishing can be arranged on the River Findhorn, River Oich, River Morison, which are all within easy driving distance.
Loch Ness is close by and is the largest, deepest and most mysterious of them all! It is majestic and stunningly beautiful. There is a wonderful drive along Loch Ness on the lower road, which passes through Foyers, on the way to Inverness, which is the most scenic route. The drive down to Fort Augustus, the nearest town, which is just 8 miles away, also provides a breathtaking view right up Loch Ness.
Falls of Foyers:
The Falls of Foyers is worth a visit. A short walk down a fairly steep wooded stepped path leads you to the Falls. There is a café with a proper cappuccino machine and a small general store at Foyers.
Fort Augustus and the Caledonian Canal:
Fort Augustus is just 8 miles from Brachkashie and is the nearest town for provisions. It's an absolutely stunning drive with a look-out point at around the halfway point that gives sweeping, majestic views.There are several pubs, a butcher, post office, general store and a petrol station. The petrol station has a comprehensive general store, gift shop and hardware items.
The Caledonian Canal runs through Fort Augustus before entering Loch Ness and is the navigational route for all the boats passing along the Great Glen. There are a series of Locks in Fort Augustus for the boats to pass through, which are always fun to watch.
