Find cottages in Fort Augustus

Situated in the Great Glen, mid-way between Fort William and Inverness on the southern shores of Loch Ness, is the small village of Fort Augustus.

A popular holiday destination, Fort Augustus is located in a very scenic Highland region of Scotland and has a choice of outdoor activities and historical attractions that will keep you busy during your stay.

Fort Augustus has easy access to Loch Ness, whether it’s exploring by car or catching one of the many boat trips that will take you out onto the loch. The village is also located by the impressive Caledonian Canal, which stretches for 60 miles, and again many visitors enjoy exploring this canal by boat, or simply take relaxing walks alongside it to watch the barges navigating the locks.

The Caledonian Canal Heritage Centre details the history of this waterway and much of the area, and for those who enjoy stepping back in time there is also the Clansmen Centre, where guides in traditional Highland Dress demonstrate weaponry dating from as far back as the 17th Century.

The village is steeped in history and many of the houses that line the streets have been built using stone quarried from the area. The striking Fort Augustus Abbey, built in 1880, is also made from local stone and is certainly one of the village’s most notable landmarks.

Fort Augustus is the ideal location for an outdoor activity holiday and is an extremely popular walking destination. It’s the starting point for the South Loch Ness trail and the Great Glen Way passes through the village centre. The surrounding Highlands also offer glorious walks and mountain biking trails, and for the more adventurous, there is mountain climbing. Loch Ness, The Caledonian Canal and the nearby River Oich all offer great fishing and Oich has particularly good salmon fishing.

Explore a tiny village in the heart of the Scottish Highlands; search for cottages in Fort Augustus for a tranquil and scenic getaway.

    Ref: CC511469
    Vatersay Cottage is part of a three-cottage hamlet at Kytra Lock and is a detached heritage property. It sits on the opposite bank from its neighbours. Like them, it enjoys all the benefits of a completely secluded spot but offers easy access to loads of activities.
    Kytra Lock is the ideal location for people who really want to get away from it all. It’s as sheltered and secluded a spot as you’ll find anywhere, yet it’s only two miles from Fort Augustus and a range of activities. Surrounded by Scots pines and overlooked by Tor Dhuin hill fort, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped into a postcard. The hamlet feels a million miles away from the normal everyday life – exactly what you want from a holiday home. There’s also a private garden, just the place to enjoy a quiet drink while watching the boats sail by.
    Sitting on the southernmost tip of Loch Ness, Fort Augustus is well worth a visit and has a good village pub and restaurant. An impressive system of locks brings canal boats into the village and watching the boats trying to negotiate the locks is a popular pastime. The Caledonian Canal Heritage Centre will allow you to find out more about traditional Highland life, or for a more gentle occupation, visit the Rare Breeds Croft. Kids will love the deer, highland cattle, sheep goats and pheasants – not to mention the pot-bellied pigs!
    Take a cruise on Loch Ness to hunt down the Loch Ness Monster, whilst enjoying magnificent views of Urquhart Castle. Visit Invermoriston where the Moriston Falls, complete with salmon jumping, can be viewed from the Thomas Telford Bridge. Or drive to the Isle of Skye, passing Eilean Donan – Scotland’s most photographed castle.
    The area also hosts a large number of outdoor activities including mountain biking, hillwalking, golf, fishing, horseriding, kayaking and windsurfing.
    If all the peace and quiet gets too much, Fort William and Inverness are less than an hour’s drive away.

    Vatersay Cottage can be booked together with Eriskay Cottage (CC511468) and Sandray Cottage (CC511467) to accommodate up to 13 guests.
