About the property


Old Lock-keeper's Cottage and Ness View Cottage are a pair of semi-detached cottages circa 1850, sitting at the side of the flight of locks of the Caledonian Canal in the centre of Fort Augustus. They enjoy an elevated view down the locks and across Loch Ness beyond. Surrounded by mountains, forests and water, Fort Augustus is the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday watching the boats sail past, or to try a bit of Nessie-spotting. It is also an ideal base to explore the rest of the Highlands from, being centrally positioned and relatively near to all the best attractions. Free Wi-fi.
