Fort Augustus

Fort Augustus

This traditional settlement is located within the parish of Boleskin and Abertarff and at the heart of the Great Glen and nestled upon the banks of the southern tip of Loch Ness. Visitors to the area often enjoy walking through the picturesque town, admiring the historic buildings and looking down over one of the most iconic sights in Scotland, Loch Ness. There are a variety of excellent walk and cycle paths in the area, many brining visitors down to the sparkling shores of Loch Ness, or into the hills for excellent views over the Loch. There are also a number of sites of historic interest nearby, including Urquhart Castle. Day trips are also possible to the larger Highland centres of Inverness and Fort William.
