Bracarina House was purpose built in 1995 by Sheila and Simon MacLellan, to provide a family home and bed and breakfast accommodation. Each bedroom is well furnished and has a spacious en suite bathroom or shower-room. A large comfortably furnished lounge with open fire is also provided for the guests. The dining room is situated downstairs, where guests can enjoy great views of Sron Na Muic whilst enjoying their breakfast.

Bracarina House is next door to the village hotel and tavern, where our guests can enjoy good food and a drink.

Bracarina House is located in the small village of Invermoriston, which is on the A82, the main road between Inverness and Fort William and also the A887, which heads west to the Isle of Skye. Due to its central position in the Highlands, Invermoriston makes an ideal base for touring, Skye and the beautiful west coast are only one hour away.
Invermoriston is situated on the south west shore of Loch Ness where the river Moriston flows into the loch. Inver means 'mouth of' hence Invermoriston, Inverness, Invergarry etc. The river begins its life 28 miles to the west of Invermoriston close to the mountain range known as the Five Sisters of Kintail and winds its way down through beautiful Glenmoriston. The last few hundred metres of the river flows dramatically over rocks shaped over centuries through a narrow gorge down a series of waterfalls into Loch Ness.

The Great Glen Cycle Route and the increasingly popular Great Glen Way pass directly behind Bracarina House. The G G Cycle Route was opened in 1993 and runs from Fort William to Inverness. This route is for mountain bikers and can be quite demanding, especially the section between Invermoriston and Drumnadrochit. The G G Way is for walkers and follows a similar route as the cycle track. This route is an extension to the West Highland Way, which has been in existence for many years and runs from Glasgow to Fort William. Now walkers can continue on to Inverness on the G G Way, which was opened in 2000. The walk follows the Caledonian Canal and the lochs of the Great Glen: Lochy, Oich and Ness. Much of the walk is either along towpaths or forest tracks. The G G Way takes you high above Loch Ness and offers some of the best views making the effort worthwhile.

For those with neither the time or energy for the walk above Invermoriston, ten miles along the A82 towards Drumnadrochit is Urqhart Castle. This is the most popular place for Nessie watching and offers the best views of Loch Ness along the roadside.
