Borgie (Scottish Gaelic: Borghaidh)[1] is a hamlet in Highland, Scotland.[2][3]

The hamlet features an area known as Borgie Wood or The Millennium Forest. The forest area was established under the Millennium Forest for Scotland project, which looked to develop natural areas for the turn of the New Millennium.
