Country Cottages in Fort Augustus

On the southern shore of Loch Ness lies the picturesque village of Fort Augustus which offers a delightful array of small shops, bars and restaurants. It is locally referred to as the gateway to Loch Ness as from here the whole of Loch Ness is at your fingertips. The location of Fort Augustus also makes it an ideal base for Highland holidays, and you will find a great selection of loch side cottages, stylish apartments and lodges, many with superb loch views. There is plenty for tourists to see and do on the doorstep of this historic village and enough charm and character to make you fall in love with the place, as the many visitors who return year after year will testify. Take a cruise on the loch and relax as you sail effortlessly along the seemingly untouched surface of the glistening water. Adrenaline junkies will prefer a fast RIB speedboat ride to the ruins of Urquhart Castle. Take a family adventure in hired kayaks or canoes and make your own way up and around the edges of the mystical loch, if you dare.
