About us

Set in the forests surrounding Fort Augustus, this is a quiet and beautiful location, yet less than 2 miles from the village and the most famous loch in the world - Loch Ness.

Many trails are located within the surrounding forests and alongside the glorious River Oich. A casual stroll takes you to Fort Augustus with the historic Caledonian Canal Locks - the gateway to Loch Ness. During the holiday season the village bustles with visitors and is a popular holiday venue, with its many cafes, restaurants and bars. As Fort Augustus is in the heart of the Highlands it is a superb base for your Highland adventures. The white sandy beaches on the west coast and the magical Isle of Skye are all within a days drive.

Aonach Mor, where you can take a gondola ride and experience a spectacular view of the Great Glen and Ben Nevis is only about half an hours drive. Winter skiing is available and downhill mountain biking in the summer months. A must is the Jacobite Steam Train journey from Fort William to Mallaig, which crosses the viaduct made famous in the Harry Potter films - one of the finest railway journeys in the world. For a spot of retail therapy, Inverness the capital of the Highlands is about 40 minutes drive.

With the mysterious Loch Ness and all its secrets virtually on your doorstep you do not have to venture far. Take a boat trip on Loch Ness in your own quest of finding that elusive "monster" or experience the quiet and very beautiful south side of Loch Ness.
With walks by the river or canal, along with the many forest trails you will find plenty to keep you occupied.
The Caledonian Canal runs through the heart of the village so you can watch the boats manoeuvring the lock gates on their way through the Great Glen.
