The cottage was ideally placed to tour/visit the North west Highlands. Its location within Fort Augustus was excellent, with easy access to shops, garages, pubs and cafes as well as good routes for walking without the need to use a car. The cottage is only about 200-300m from the village centre and is very quiet and tranquil. We found the garden weRead morell kept and an ideal place for our dog, who very much enjoyed the space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would re-visit Hide

The cottage was in a perfect location for access to Loch Ness, the Caledonian canal and walks in the Great Glen. It was cozy and comfortable with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We were able to sit out in the garden as we were lucky with the weather. The bottle of wine and homemade jam were a lovely touch which we thoroughly enjoyed.
