Area Information

Come and visit the mystical Fort Augustus, situated at the mouth of the world famous Loch Ness & Telford’s stunning locks on the Caledonian Canal. Close to magical castles, mysterious mountains, stunning glens and, of course, the legendary Ben Nevis.

Take a walk up the hills to look down at the clouds lying across the glen, or to appreciate the sheer beauty and size of Loch Ness, with the pretty village of Fort Augustus clustered around its shore.

Hire a bike from the local store and explore the canalside cycle path from the door of Bon Accord all the way to Fort William or Inverness. Or simply wander around the peaceful village and admire the scenery.
