The cottage is right in the middle of town, you require nothing as everything is there. Owner lives up the road and is happy to help in any way he can. They also have the B&B just up the road, Kings Inn which is great. They rent from Sunday to Sunday but the B&ab is available in between, they will move your stuff up for you.

“Waking Up to That View!”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I stayed for a week in mid-June. Many other people have written about this cottage's glowing qualities, and they're all spot on! However, in addition, one of the things we enjoyed the most was waking up, opening the door to the warm kitchen and enjoying the sunlight pouring in while we drank coffee looking out at the view down to Loch Ness. As Americans, we were unfamiliar with the metered heat, but it works beautifully in this cottage. (There are additional heaters to turn on if needed.) Although it was chilly for us, in the 50's F, the cottage was cozy as could be especially if we kept the door to the living room closed and let the heat warm the 3 main rooms. We brought along an inflatable kayak and kept it out in the yard the whole time. No one bothered it. We were able to kayak up the Caledonian Canal, take a short portage walk over the footpath and down to the River Oich and back to Loch Ness. We also kayaked the lower end of Loch Ness. We loved strolling to the butcher's every day and buying a different hot pie to snack on while we watched what was going on at the loch. For a terrific meal, the best we had was Wild Venison Chili up at Fiddler's Cafe in Drumnadrochit. On a rainy day, it was perfect! A drive up to Glen Affric was also a highlight (turn left at Drumnadrochit). Brian was very accommodating when we needed to change the dates for our reservation; he was great to work with and responded very quickly to any emails we sent. BTW, we did find 3G service from inside the cottage -- in front of the microwave on top of the sugar canister. We hunted and found it!

“What a great find in Fort Augustus”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We arrived at the start of the peak season and went looking for a B&B and found a vacancy at 'Kings Inn' where Brian mentioned that he had a vacancy at a cottage 100 yds along the road.... Were we blown away with an beautiful 2 bedroom cottage right on the canal.
We ended up staying 4 nights and fell in love with the cottage and the location.
Waking up in the morning overlooking the locks or a view from the kitchen down to lock Ness.
Beautifully clean, renovated bathroom, great kitchen which even had a washer and dryer.
Brian and Eilane just could be more friendly and helpful.

Only three words left to say.... AWESOME... BEAUTIFUL... FANTASTIC
Would love to come back and stay fiorever.

“cosy cottage”

My Wife and i are just home after spending 4 nights at this charming cottage. The cottage is in a spectacular position a few yards away from the canal locks, it is extremely warm and cosy, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It was a real treat to light the log burner on a couple of nights (i will add...the cottage has full electric heating).
We met the owner Brian and his wife a couple of times and they are a delightful couple, extremely helpful.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with loads of lovely walks or to use as a touring base this cottage is ideal....restraunts, pubs, take-aways and other shops all within a two hundred metres.
I missed having no Wi-Fi connection in the cottage.....but i knew this before we went.
All in all....we had a great break.

This was our first trip to the Highlands and we can't wait to go back the accommodation was excellent and a perfect base for us. We won't hesitate to book this cottage again the views of Loch Ness early in a morning from our windows were breathtaking and Fort Augustus had everything you needed.
