Location Many guests return year after year just to spend time in this unique log cabin. Understandably, given its superb setting and central location, (Fort Augustus is in the geographical centre of the Highlands of Scotland) this is one of the most popular holiday choices in the Highlands. Through the village runs the River Oich and the picturesque Caledonian canal and lock system, built by Thomas Telford in the early 1800's.
Set in the forest with only 2 other houses nearby. Close to the Great Glen cycle way and many miles of forest and hill trails. The cottage is warm and cosy throughout the year and is an ideal retreat for those wanting to spend some time walking, relaxing, and for quietly pursuing your favourite pastimes. There are many forest and hill walks from the doorstep. The River Oich riverside walk is only three quarters of a mile away, and a walk to the nearest pubs and restaurants in the village of Fort Augustus is one and half miles. The proximity to attractions also makes this a favourite destination for young families. With Fort William (Ben Nevis) and Inverness, only an hour away by car. The West coast also only a little over an hours drive.
