Great very well equipped and comfortable.
This quaint cottage is steps from Loch Ness and a few minutes walk from Fort Augustus town center. Plenty of choices for eating out or browsing the stores. Great location for day trips to the Highlands and many other areas.
The cottage was clean and well kept. The private garden area was great and the view of the surrounding mountains was beautiful.
Malt house holiday
Lovely location and comfortable and cosy cottage
Great place, in a lovely village
Very clean, lovely setting, everything needed for a great stay.
Wonderful cottage in beautiful gardens
Even though the cottage was small it was beautifully kept and offered top class accommodation. Large secure gardens provided a safe place for my dog to enjoy and we enjoyed our time relaxing in the cottage as much as travelling around the highlands. A return visit is a must!!!
Compact but beautifully situated.
The cottage was very compact, but well appointed and kept clean. The owners were friendly and accommodating and always made sure we had everything we needed. Plenty of garden space for when weather allows, and dog friendly (except for the very narrow winding stairs). Very convenient also for socialising with family aboard a boat on the Caledonian Canal just outside the garden wall.
