Explore this beautiful part of the Highlands

Fort Augustus

Fort Augustus is a small village situated on the most southern tip of Loch Ness on the Great Glen Way, this historic and scenic hamlet is a popular destination, lying on the impressive 60 mile long Caledonian Canal, halfway between Inverness and Fort William. It is the gateway between Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal which runs through the centre of the village.

This is a pretty place where you can sit and watch the boats navigating the locks with places to eat and drink with gift shops and craft shops, and if you fancy an ice cream Miele’s Gelateria is the place to go!

Fort Augustus offers spectacular views down Loch Ness and there is a spot which is the most photographed place in Scotland. This also a paradise for keen walkers and cyclists with many beautiful walks around the area, the most popular being the Great Glen Way.

All in all, it is a wonderful place to stop and relax, making it an ideal resting point for those exploring the Highlands.

Other attractions include Cruise Loch Ness, which offers daily boat trips on the loch. Also, the Clansman Centre, where you can go back to 17th century Scotland through recreated scenes and interactive experiences.
