About the property


Old Lock-keeper's Cottage and Ness View Cottage are a pair of semi-detached cottages circa 1850, sitting at the side of the flight of locks of the Caledonian Canal in the centre of Fort Augustus. They enjoy an elevated view down the locks and across Loch Ness beyond. Surrounded by mountains, forests and water, Fort Augustus is the perfect place to spend a relaxing holiday watching the boats sail past, or to try a bit of Nessie-spotting. It is also an ideal base to explore the rest of the Highlands from, being centrally positioned and relatively near to all the best attractions. Free Wi-fi.

Cosy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in 'Ness View'. We booked it because we were able to take our 2 wee Yorkies with us, also knowing Fort Augustus a wee bit we were sure it would be a quiet, peaceful holiday. We were right! 'Ness View' is all on the one level, which was good for us as our own home is a single storey cottage! No stairs! (Old Lock Keeper's Cottage is entered at ground level, but its shower room and bedrooms are on the first floor, partly above Ness View) The house was clean and fresh, everything we needed for a comfortable stay. There is a TV, with FreeSat, and free WiFi. Owners Brian and Elaine are very accommodating, but not intrusive.

'Ness View' being right beside the Locks, which link the Caledonian Canal with Loch Ness, we were out every morning with our morning coffee, watching the comings and goings of the boats. You can walk up either side of the Canal, or go in the other direction and walk down to Loch Ness. We would recommend either part of the cottage to family and friends.
