Comfortable well appointed home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I wish we had stayed longer. The property is a perfect base for visiting so much of Scotland. Fort Augustus is a beautiful little town. Les was a fabulous host who was so helpful and kind. The welcome of milk, butter, bread and some treats was very nice after a long day of driving. The home was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We would recommend this property to anyone traveling in the Highlands.

Great village, friendly caretaker. The cottage is comfy but with large living area for all six adults on our trip. Nice kitchen for cooking meals in, pubs and dining within walking distance. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gemütliches Haus. Gut für Motorradfahrer mit Unterstand für 4 Motorräder. Ruhig gelegen aber noch nah am Ort. Nur ein paar Minuten zu Fuss zum Einkaufen oder Essen. Sehr netter Nachbar der auch der Hausmeister ist. Das Haus würden wir sofort wieder buchen.
