  • We found the locals most friendly and helpful, indeed the visitors were also very nice people too. It's a place where even the hardest of hearts will melt in awe of the scenery and the atmosphere 
  • Views of Loch Ness. We stayed for a long time especially to watch the passage of boats through the locks. This lack of shops for shopping

  • Fort Augustus is located at the southwestern end of Loch Ness. It's a small place that exudes a tremendous charm. In the Centre of the village is the multi-level locks plant, which attracts many guests throughout the day. Along the locks, there are numerous restaurants and pubs. We were here for several days and made excursions in the area. This small village has with us the best please. We will be always happy here.

  • 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.
