En famille dans ce très bel appartement tout confort, nous avons passé un super sèjour.

Confort, silence et repos au bout du lock mais sans voir le Nessi malheureusement.

Ein Traum....

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft war fantastisch. Alles sauber und direkter Zugang zum See. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Fort Augustus ist ein kleiner Ort aber man kann mit einem Mietwagen alles problemlos erreichen. In der Gegend kann man schön wandern gehen und alte Burgen anschauen.

A gem on Loch Ness

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Talisker apartment. Stunning location and unusual, atmospheric accommodation. We loved the walks, local pubs, boat trip, tennis courts, giant chess set, grounds leading right to the banks of the loch and the extraordinary building itself with its fascinating history. It was a very special trip.

We loved staying at Talisker. The apartment had everything we needed and was warm, clean and modern. The location on the banks of Loch Ness was ideal too.
