Fort Augustus cottages

Situated in Inverness Shire, on the southern tip of Loch Ness, this historic and charming hamlet is a popular tourist spot and an ideal location to base yourself for exploring this area. Fort Augustus has spectacular views over Loch Ness halfway between Inverness and Fort William. Lying on the 60-mile Caledonian Canal, this is a haven for both walkers and cyclists, with many great trails to try out, the most popular being the Great Glen Way. Loch Ness has become famous due to the tales of the mythical creature, Nessie. Grab your camera and be ready if you spot anything moving beneath the water. Even if you don't see Nessie, Loch Ness is a beautiful 23-mile stretch of water, making it the largest loch in Scotland. Overlooking the water are the ruins of Urquhart Castle, once a royal castle and now a relic from the times of the Wars of Independence and the Jacobite uprising. Come and enjoy some days of peace and relaxation in one of our Fort Augustus cottages.
