Visitors can explore the surrounding countryside by cruising Loch Ness, home to the world famous Loch Ness Monster, or take a trip to nearby Urquhart Castle, Glen Affric or simply sit and watch the boats navigating the locks.

A thriving tourist hot spot which has many restaurants, shops and breathtaking views in any direction, Fort Augustus also benefits from excellent schooling, both primary and secondary, with Glenurquhart High School only 30 minutes away, a direct bus route for which is available. The village can be easily accessed via bus from either Inverness or Fort William and there is a school bus in operation right outside the house.

Both Inverness, "the capital of the Highlands" and Fort William, "the outdoor capital of the UK" are less than an hours drive away, as is the stunning and breathtaking Eilean Donan Castle, reputably the most photographed castle in Scotland, on the road to Skye, also well worth a visit.
