Holiday cottages and accommodation on the wild side of Loch Ness Scotland. Holiday homes in Fort Augustus and South Loch Ness Scotland



Fort Augustus lies 32 miles south of the Highland capital Inverness, with excellent road, rail and air links and 32 miles north of Fort William. Here the River Oich and the Caledonian Canal, meet Loch Ness.

At the southern most tip of Loch Ness you will find the picturesque village of Fort Augustus with shops, heritage centres and eating establishments. It is an ideal place to watch boats navigate the Caledonian Canal with its impressive loch system. The canal, some 60 miles long, designed by Thomas Telford links Fort William to Inverness via 22 miles of man made canal and the rest as natural lochs; Loch Lochy, Loch Oich, Loch Ness and Loch Dochfour. It offers spectacular scenery and wildlife along its course.

Here too, in Fort Augustus you can meet up with the Great Glen Way. Explore for yourself some of the route ways of this long distance walk or for the more energetic walker complete the whole 73 mile route from Fort William to Inverness. It is largely low level but there are a few Munros to be ‘bagged’ along the way.

Eight miles further north, you will find the attractive village of Invermoriston, Moriston in Gaelic meaning ‘the river of waterfalls’. Why not view these dramatic falls from the Old Bridge built by Thomas Telford in 1813. Find the St. Columbus Well and great gorge at the start of the Glen Moriston road to the Isles.

The southern shores of Loch Ness are more peaceful, offering the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle and explore the local wildlife and small villages of Whitebridge, Foyers, Gorthleck, Inverfarigaig, Croachy, Farr and Dores. At Foyers find the stunning 100 foot waterfall, forest walks at Inverfarigaig, RSPB reserve at Loch Ruthven famous for its Slovenian Grebe. For those with a little more time to spare, venture on the Trail of the Seven Lochs, a 50 mile loop of the area providing stunning views and varied terrain for both walkers and riders or the South Loch Ness Trail a 28 mile route suitable for both walkers and cyclists. South Loch Ness is the wild side of Loch Ness, this naturally beautiful and undiscovered area of Scotland with its sparking lochs and heather clad hills, stretches from Fort Augustus at the southernmost tip of the loch to Dores at the northern end of Loch Ness and eastwards to Daviot. This area of Scotland has been described as the Inverness “Lake District”, so numerous are the lochs and lochans in this region of the Highlands of Scotland. You will find a number of cottages in this area to appreciate for yourself the magic of south Loch Ness.
