    • “Lovely!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We couldn't ask for a better place to stay in the area. The property is well looked after, clean and tidy. The house is very comfortable for everybody, including our two dogs Max and Timmy. The kitchen is a bit small but very well equipped. The garden is nice and big enough for the dogs to run and play about. The bathrooms are extremely clean and the beds are very comfortable. The location is ideal to organise day trips around the area.”

    • “Nice little cottage - all what was written in the description is correct - has all what you need - perfect to stay with a dog (garden - several walks starting from the cottage) - and good starting point to explore the region - just do not expect a big kitchen (but has all what it needs)”

    • “Despite the fear that we had rented a shed, when we first pulled up at the rear of the cottage, we were very happy with what was inside. On entering the cottage from the back (parking), you enter the tiniest of kitchens. Nevertheless, it has all the equipment you could want (including worktop dishwasher and a washer-dryer) and you're on holiday; not preparing dinner parties! The living/dining area is spacious and the downstairs bathroom is lovely - with bath and huge electric shower. The stairs are steep (mentioned in owners' spec) but this is not a new-build, it's an old cottage. The bedrooms are both very comfortable, well furnished and nicely decorated. The upstairs bathroom is small but again has modern fittings and a nice big shower. The front garden on nicely lawned for children to play in safely and there is garden furniture should you be blessed as we were with great weather. It was a shame someone had not quite completed laying the ground-sheeting for the path (a potential hazard just outside the door) but as this was the one negative, we overlooked it. The cottage is literally a minute's walk from the heart of this exquisite litle village: with a flight on locks ending the Caledonian canal and opening out onto Loch Ness itself. We will never forget the views and photographs just don't do it justice. A word about the local ammenities: Do a supermarket shop before you get there (the local grocery shops are over-priced and under-stocked). Coming from the South, stop at Fort William and from the North, Inverness - supermarkets are too far away to just 'nip' to.”

    Mrs Faux, Aylesbury, September 2014

    • “We liked everything about our holiday.”

    Mrs Quintrell, Plymouth, August 2014

    • “We liked everything about the holiday, it was brilliant. The house was excellent 10/10! The garden was perfect for our dog and for my niece. The location was perfect; 2 mins walk and you are in the village, beautiful location. I would recommend the cottage to anyone, Fort Augustus is stunning on the edge of Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canals are very impressive.”

    Mrs Gallagher, Sale, August 2014

    • “The location of the cottage is excellent. You can get easily to a lot of the interesting places in the Scottish Highlands and it is very close to a lot of fantastic hiking areas. The infrastructure of the very friendly village is great.”

    Peters, Berlin, June 2014

    • “The cottage was absolutely brilliant, and very well situated close to the canal locks and centre of the village. Very comfortable and very clean, everything that was stated as supplied was and all very good. We would recommend this property to all, loved it.”

About the location


Fort William 31 miles; Inverness 34 miles.

Nestling at the south-west end of Loch Ness, Fort Augustus has a variety of shops, and you can sample a fine selection of food in the local pubs and restaurants. Ideal for those who like to be near water, the village is home to a stretch of the Caledonian canal, including a flight of locks that provide a fascinating place to watch the world go by, as the numerous boats make their way further west towards Fort William. Visit the Clansman Centre, search the Loch for "Nessie" or venture further afield to Newtonmore (Monarch of the Glen country), Kingussie or the city of Inverness.
