This interesting delightful duplex apartment or cottage might be a better description is designed for couples but can sleep 4 by using the sofa bed in the lounge best for young families on a tight budget and those who apreciate the excellent value for money that this apartment offers. The cottage is attached to the original Moat House of Fort Augustus Abbey, one of the more interesting and private apartments as it stands ion its own.

It is two minutes walk from the lovely village of Fort Augustus, which, by the way, is the geographical centre of the Highlands. We coined the phrase "Gateway to Loch Ness" because Fort Augustus is th eperfect base for exploring Loch Ness and as locals, we can tell you both sides have lots of places to see and explore.

Fort Augustus is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Highlands, not just for discovering the wilds, and not so wild, attractions around Loch Ness but also for visiting Inverness, Fort William and the West Coast - all are within an hour's drive from your accommodation. Through the village runs the River Oich and the Caledonian canal and lock system, which was built by Thomas Telford in the early 1800's. Restaurants, bars and shops are all available in the village.

Fort Augustus Abbey is a magnificent "A" listed building standing in 20 acres of mature and well manicured garden grounds. The waters of Loch Ness lap the Abbey boundaries and it is easy to see why the monks of past generations found it such a restful, spiritual place to be close to the land, and to nature . Perhaps it is now a haven for those wanting a quiet holiday or a tryst in which to spend a honeymoon.

"Fantastic getaway"

We wanted a relaxing week away with the option of doing nothing, sightseeing or being adventurous - and that's what we got! We sampled food from most of the places in the village and ended up at … More
