The Scottish Highlands 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.

We have been in September in the Cottage Brachkashie for 11 days. When we arrived we have straight fallen in love with this Lovely Cottage. It is a dream. We loved the view over our private Loch and my son and his girlfriend loved to make every day when the weather was fine a trip outside with the boat. . Every room is furnished with love. We have had a wonderful relaxing time there. we can recommend this nice cottage at 100%. It's the perfect place to destress and also have fun with the family.
I'm delighted to hear you loved Brachkashie so much! I'm sorry (and quite surprised!) to see we didn't score full marks in every category and hope we will next time! All the best, Carrie
