“Wonderful relaxing week”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have recently returned from a fantastic week at New Brachkashie.
The cottage is extremely welcoming, very well equipped throughout and decorated to a high standard.
The views out over Loch Knockie are absolutely stunning and we saw a wide variety of wildlife including a Pine Marten and Osprey.
As the sun shone all week we spent many hours on the Loch in the boats provided and were even successful at fishing.
We also ventured out most days to the surrounding areas which are equally as beautiful.
We had a fantastic holiday at New Brachkashie and will definitely return one day.
Many thanks to Catherine, George and Family for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage.

We are thrilled that you had such a good week at New Brachkashie Cottage with the bonus of good weather too! Lovely to read your comments and we would be delighted to welcome you all back in the future. We are hoping to put up a boat house down by the Loch quite soon so hopefully if you do return, that will add to the enjoyment of your time spent down on Loch Knockie.
Best regards,
Catherine

Thank you Resha! Wonderful that you both enjoyed your stay at New Brachkashie Cottage so much and we hope you will return again one day. As you say, maybe during a warmer spell so that you can get out on the Loch and enjoy the view from that perspective as its very magical.
Many thanks again for your kind words,
Catherine

“Perfect Stay in Scottish Highlands - Panoramic House above beautiful Lake”
Reviewed January 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2015

We have really enjoyed every aspect of our stay.
The cottage is very nicely decorated, offers a very high standard in terms of equipment, cleanliness and style.
During the day we enjoyed the direct lake access with private rowing boat and the plenty of hiking options, in the evenings we enjoyed the cooking facilities and the cosy living room with the charming fireplace, during the night we enjoyed the comfortable beds and mattresses.
I highly recommend this cottage for any nature lover or someone searching for a luxury retreat.
We really felt like at a friends house :-)

“Perfect, simply perfect”
Reviewed December 20, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This part of the country has always been a favourite with us and we noticed New Brachkashie when out one day. This was a few years back and it took a bit of time to find the owners and agree our first rental. I am glad we persevered as we are now planning our fourth visit, and booking is now a lot simpler. We have had great times enjoying the peace and tranquility, the fishing and the scenery of the area. The cottage is beautifully presented to the very highest standard and the location is simply stunning. Whether we are sitting on the deck taking in the view or enjoying the warmth from the stove in the sitting room in the company of friends, this place has a magic of its own that keeps us coming back. Each visit is as memorable and enjoyable as the last. Perfect, simply perfect.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed November 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a fantastic stay at this cottage. My 3 and 6 year old had great fun making dens and exploring. My partner loved the private loch and fished every night while I enjoyed the surroundings and wood burning stove. We frequented Fort Augustus which has a fantastic butchers, the kids loved the canal boats. We also thoroughly enjoyed a boat trip on Loch Ness, a visit to Urquhart Castle and an open top bus tour of Inverness. We also went Pony trekking. So much to do in gorgeous accommodation within beautiful grounds. In fact we enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked for next Summer. Thank you Catherine.

Wonderful to hear that you all had such a good time! It's the perfect spot for a family to relax so if you get half decent weather, it's fantastic to make the most of the boats and the Loch which you clearly did, Thanks so much for your kind words and we are delighted that you are all returning in July next year!

“Outstanding”
Reviewed November 20, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

New Brachkashie is simply the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed at. The house is beautifully set on the banks of Loch Knockie and has large grounds which the kids loved to explore, with small dens to hide away in and let their imaginations run wild. The property has been interior designed to a very high standard and puts you in the Highland frame of mind immediately you walk through the door. We were blessed with amazing weather for October but using the wood burner at the end of the day was a joy. We were out on the rowing boat each day of our stay which the kids loved, it was so peaceful as we were the only people out on the water each time, just listening to the water lap against the boat whilst Dad huffed and puffed! There is an island which we plan to set foot on next time we are there. If you are thinking of booking this then please do, you will not be disappointed. Catherine's communication before the stay and after was excellent and we were made to feel welcome and appreciated. We will be booking again as soon as we can.
