St Machar - Luxury 3 bed cottage, Fort Augustus

St Machar is set in a well-kept, landscaped garden. Stunning views of the hills and trees surrounding the area are a feature here, so bring your binoculars - you could spot regal birds of prey circling Fort Augustus, or majestic stags wandering the hills. The cottage is at the top of a quiet cul-de-sac, very conveniently placed in Fort Augustus - just a few minutes' walk and you are at the southern tip of Loch Ness! It is close to the village amenities - bars, restaurants, shops and convenience stores - and is a great base for visiting all that the dramatic Scottish Highlands have to offer.

Additional Location Information

It was the Caledonian Canal passing through Fort Augustus, with its dramatic lock gates stepping down to Loch Ness that helped bring peace to a troubled area. The canal connected the East Coast of Scotland to the West, bringing trade. No longer did the Engish Army need to be stationed here and so the 'fort' in Fort Augustus was redundant, eventually becoming the Abbey. Today, many a balmy summer day can be spent watching boats working the locks as they travel between Fort William and Inverness. There are some fabulous walks to suit all levels in and around Fort Augustus. Take the old tow path along the Caledonian Canal through to Kytra Lock and you will be rewarded with beautiful scenery, passing the canal on one side and the River Oich on the other. Jenkins Park is another great starting point. It's ideal for all ages and all levels of fitness, as here you will find long and short routes - all clearly marked through forestry plantation.
