  • Fort Augustus is a beautiful, history, engineering steep village. It is a busy tourist village and well worth seeing. 
  • This is a very pretty village/town and well worth a day trip. Lovely eateries and gift shops and nice walks around the locks and Abbey 
  • The only interesting thing are closed and the air we breathe, otherwise many tourists and souvenir shops are ranging from Chinese to Scottish pure wool sweater Doll (182 pounds!). To visit. ...

  • Amazing hosts and what an amazing location. Breakfast superb, room clean, warm and super comfortable. My bicycle was also catered for which was a brilliant touch. Thank you Phil and Clare.
  • Thanks to Phil and Clare for a wonderfull stay at The Holt. You gave a very warm and personal welcom. Having breakfast in so nice surroundings was pure meditation... :-) So nice! We can only recommend this beautifull site.
  • Had the best experience of staying in a B&B ever. Thanks to Phil and Clare who made us feel very welcome. The conservatory where we sat and had breakfast overlooks the river where you could watch all sorts of wildlife. The breakfast was plentiful and sorted us for the rest of the day. The room with ensuite was beautifully decorated and comforatable with all mod cons. Lots of information at hand regarding the local area and is ideally situated at the side of the locks. Would recommend this B&B as a first choice to anyone wanting to stay in Fort Augustus Scotland.
  • Great B & B within walking distance of Loch Ness. Phil and Claire attended us wonderful and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Is super easy to get and there are also several pubs for lunch and/or dinner about what you do not need to take the car.
