Rowan Cottage is a charming Highland crofter's cottage that was originally built in the late 19th century and extended in 1992. The cottage is surrounded by the Highland hills and is not looked on by any other properties. A row of ancient Scots Pines line one side of the garden and woods with walking/cycling track are also part of the area. Beautiful, mature trees frame the front garden and there are two swings hanging from an ancient tree.
The cottage is incredibly cosy with wood burning stove in the sitting room and a light-filled open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room. French doors open to a view of the pines and tranquil garden.
The kitchen is fitted with two electric ovens, one of which is a combination conventional oven and microwave oven. Black granite worktops and a Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother plus a Magimix add a modern, luxurious touch. There is a large fridge/freezer in the kitchen with extra fridge in the utility room for drinks etc. The dining table seats 8.
The cottage has four bedrooms; 3 double and one single. The downstairs bedroom has twin beds which can be pushed together or separated. Upstairs is a super cosy, pretty room with vaulted ceiling and dormer window. Opposite this room is a sweet single room, also with dormer window. These two bedrooms look out to the glorious Ben Scurragh mountain. The master bedroom is down the hall and has lovely views of the garden and Pines. A brand new travel cot is available.
The cottage features a family bathroom which is upstairs and next to the master bedroom as well as a shower room which is downstairs. Both rooms have been refurbished and feature beautiful Fired Earth tiles.

The Scottish Highlands region
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.

"Wonderful Highland Charm!!"
Rowan cottage is a delightful Highland cottage set in some of the most beautiful surroundings you could hope for. You can tell as you drive out from Fort Augustus, passing by the southern tip of Loch Ness that you are going to be in for a treat. The views and the countryside are quite simply stunning! The home itself is not your usual sterile holiday home...not by a long shot! Beautifully decorated with lots of little details and luxurious furnishings. The beds were so comfortable...great to fall in to after a day out touring around or walking in the hills. We travelled as a group of seven, with grandparents and children, and no-one wanted to leave. The garden was great for the children. It consists of large grassy areas with tree swings, and a wood/forest...a great place to make dens and play hide and seek. We saw deer in the gardens and forest every day. We enjoyed the local attractions of Loch Ness, Falls of Foyer, and made day trips to Skye (boat trip from Elgol...a must) and Mallaig on the Jacobite Steam train (great seafood options in Mallaig!). I would recommend this place without hesitation to other family and friends. A real treat! Thank you Carrie for a very smooth and pleasant holiday booking!!
Such a wonderful review and so appreciated! Thank you so much for taking the time to write it. Please come and visit again soon!

"Magical Highlands getaway"
Rowan Cottage is a fantastic place to spend a week. Set in a magical woodland garden, where deer come to feed amongst the foxgloves and pine trees, the house is an oasis of calm, comfort and relaxation. In spite of the fact that it rained almost every day during our stay, we had a wonderful holiday, venturing out to nearby attractions (Falls of Foyers, Fort Augustus, Tomatin whiskey distillery…) and coming ‘home’ to play board games, cook in the beautifully-equipped kitchen or simply put our feet up. The house provides every comfort you could hope for, has stunning views, and complete privacy, making for a very special place to be based. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review of our 'home from home' in the enchanting Scottish Highlands. I hope we will be able to welcome you back one day. Hugh and Carrie

"Feeling like being home"
Dear Carrie, dear readers of this review, we loved to stay at Rowan Cottage. It´s by far the most beautiful cottage we had the pleasure to rent. We lived there for only one week and didn´t want to go away. The surroundings were beautiful and quiet, rabbits and deer around the house. The ideal place for exploring the Highlands. The furniture was excelently chosen - a stilish cottage - you can see that Carrie and her family enjoy Rowan Cottage too. The kitchen and every room was perfectly equipped. Our home far away from home. Carrie was very nice and helpful. We wish you perfect holidays at Rowan Cottage! Yours Sandra, Christine & Frank from Germany
Dear Sandra, Christine and Frank, You are so kind to leave us such a glowing review! You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and we truly hope we can welcome you back to Rowan Cottage one day. With warmest regards, Carrie
