The whole house is decorated in a modern but welcoming style and there's lots of light flooding into the rooms. There is 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, a generous sized bathroom with both bath and shower, an additional shower room, a modern... kitchen and a cosy dining room. Stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the Great Glen Way are on offer from the windows of this delightful home.

Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain’s best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Town: Fort Augustus has everything you could want in a countryside village. It has a good collection of small shops, lots of delicious places to eat, plenty of pleasant pubs and wide-open views of Loch Ness itself. Other points of interest include the Caledonian Canal which passes right by the village and there's also the Clansman Centre to look round. Top tourist spots like Fort William, Kingussie, Newtonmore and Inverness are all a quick drive away. Activities available close by include cycling, walking, golf and fishing so there's something for all the family.

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 and clean. Everything you need in kitchen but too small,and not enough room to move around especially when using cooker/oven. Stairs not good for anyone with any mobility problems, and even for people who are able.
Outside car parking not ideal especially as you have to fight with the overgrown bushes to get in and out of your car.
Area very good and Fort augustus lovely.
Overall nice holiday.

we really enjoyed this lovely little cottage, perfect location, didnt need car unless you wanted to explore further afield. Plenty of walking for the dog, our jack russell enjoyed his walks along the canal, and even had a swim in loch ness.If we were travelling this way again we would certainly consider this cottage.

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)
Excellent stay for making tours in the surroundings.
