We had a wonderful stay, the cottage was cosy and clean and provided everything we needed. The wine and jam was a lovely surprise. The location was excellent and the surrounding scenery was beautiful. A few shops near by and pubs/restaurant. If you do need a big shop would advise to stop before to get supplies. Very happy and will definitely revisiRead moret. A bonus for us was the weather . Sunny, dry and snow just perfect. Dave who looks after the cottage was welcoming and very helpful . Hide

Cawdor cottage is set in a very convenient position, a short stroll to the Caledonian canal and the shops, eateries, pubs etc of Fort Augustus. Easy level walking distance to the shore of Loch Ness along the canal towpath. The cottage is quaint and had everything we needed. Our dog enjoyed the garden, which is fully fenced and an excellent size. ItRead more is an excellent base for trips out into the Highlands or a boat trip on Loch Ness. Thoroughly enjoyable place for a holiday. Hide
