A traditional Highland Cottage built in the late 1800’s situated overlooking the
picturesque village of Fort Augustus in its own half acre of land
In early years this was a croft with grazing and the ‘lady of the houses' job was
tending to the milk cow, which would have to be walked from fields at Inchnacardoch
some 2 miles away.
A burn (stream) which runs along side would have been the ‘water supply’ and the
weekly washing would have been done here.
Sitting outside the cottage in this rural setting your imagination can ‘run away
with you’ viewing the village as it is now and picturing it in the days gone by.
Visitors enjoy their stay in what is a traditional homely well equipped highland
cottage, relaxing or as a base for touring all areas of The Highlands

Loch Ness can be seen from the house through the trees. Enjoy a pleasure trip on
the loch. Cycle the forest tracks or meander along the banks of the Caledonian Canal
or drive through dramatic Highland scenery. Visit historic castles, climb Ben Nevis,
or explore magical glens. Inverness, Fort William and the Isle of Skye easily accessible.
The picturesque Fort Augustus golf course is nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant 600
The Caledonian Canal which runs through the village (now all electronically controlled)
was busy with cargo boats and fishing boats and employees had to open the lock gates
For the less energetic, there is always the popular pastime of watching the boats
go through the locks with a glass of wine or a wee dram in your hand.
And "Nessie" spotting proves popular in this year-round holiday area.
Pleasure trips on Loch Ness, fishing, forest walks, horse riding and golf are all
Shops, pub and restaurants are only a ten minute walk.
