Traditional end-terrace cottage with tranquil surroundings situated in the picturesque village of Fort Augustus, close to Loch Ness with its wide choice of outdoor activity opportunities.

Perfectly situated between the town of Fort William, known as the gateway to Ben Nevis, and the city of Inverness, the largest city in the Highlands, this cottage couldn’t be in a more perfect location from which to explore the mountains and lochs this area is famous for. This character cottage with its mullioned windows and slate roof provides a picture-perfect place for two couples and one canine to enjoy a traditional Scottish adventure, where the great outdoors provides the perfect playground to walk, cycle, climb or fish your way through several enjoyable days.

The inside of this cottage is just as quaint and beautiful as the exterior. The cosy lounge/dining area features pretty floral wallpaper and a woodburner with an additional sitting room offering further space to sprawl out and relax after a tiring day outdoors. There is a well-equipped kitchen with modern appliances and two cosy bedrooms with brightly-coloured sloping walls and ceilings creating charming sleeping spaces. The garden to the rear of the property is fully enclosed by fencing, trees and greenery and enjoys regular visits from the local wildlife.

Lying along the 60-mile long Caledonian Canal, the bustling village of Fort Augustus is just a 300-metre walk from the cottage and is a paradise for dog walkers, with direct access to many beautiful routes such as The Great Glen Way, rewarding trekkers with dramatic views for their efforts. You’ll also find a fantastic selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, many of which welcome well-behaved pups. The Clansman Centre in the village is a 19th-century schoolhouse that offers visitors the chance to step back in time to see how Highlanders lived in the 17th century.

This is a lovely cottage in the highlands in a quaint village. The people are extremely pleasant and this is why I return each year. The village makes me feel like home.

This end of terrace cottage with well kept enclosed garden would suit families. It`s position is close to the centre of the village, where you can view the boats going up and down the locks of the caledonian canal. There are lots of local walks, plus places to eat in the village.

Three of us stayed in Cawdor Cottage last week for seven days when we were in the Highlands. We were all impressed by the cottage. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable; and the overall, the house was peaceful. The location is good as long as you have your own transport, and the village had most of what we needed. The housekeeper was alRead moreso prompt in helping us whenever we contacted them. We would definitely stay in the house again Hide

House was well equiped but had v small kitchen (which did have all new electricsl kit). Big enclosed garden which our dog did enjoy. House is very near to the canal so watching boats go down the canal is an enjoyable pastime. Fort Augustus has god restaurants, bars and tourist shops.
