“Had a great time in a great place.”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

From the beginning Brian was very helpful. He came to check on us once we arrived and when l I let him know something broke he was right over to fix it.
The house felt very much like a home. The location was perfect and so entertaining to watch the boats in the locks.
All appliances worked, and the only real issue we had was that the heat only came on 2 times a day and we were sometimes cold.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay and we were very sad to leave. Highly recommend.

The Old Lock Keepers Cottage is a fantastic holiday let. The cottage has a cosy homely feel and is immaculately kept. We stayed during the October school week with our young daughter and dog. There are many lovely walks and things to do in and around Fort Augustus. The views from the cottage onto the lock and down to Loch Ness are beautiful. We had such an amazing holiday and would highly recommend The Old Lock keepers Cottage!
