Fort Augustus sits at the junction of 4 old military roads, but today it is best known as an excellent location for taking in the splendour and mystery of Loch Ness. If you are travelling to Scotland to try and spot Nessie, Fort Augustus hotels place you right where the action is.
Fort Augustus was originally a government garrison. It was here that George Wade was headquartered as he undertook extensive road-building work during the 18th century.
The roads that lead to Fort Augustus today, from nearby Inverness and Fort William, carry camera-toting travellers hoping to catch a sight of the beast that is reputed to live in the loch. Fort Augustus is at the foot of Loch Ness, marking its southernmost point. Set in the characteristically rugged countryside of the highlands, it’s a picturesque spot in its own right. Bisected by the Caledonian Canal and on the path of the Great Glen Way, there are some wonderful walking and biking trails on your doorstep, while sunsets over the lake add a mystical feel to your tranquil surroundings.
During the day, the loch offers peaceful strolls, perfect family picnics and dramatic scenery, with romantic ruins of castles and solitary lighthouses standing stoically out from the lush, unspoilt landscape.
There are 3 main areas to base yourself in if you’re looking to stay at the southern end of Loch Ness. Fort Augustus itself offers a wide choice of hotels, some very welcoming pubs and a handful of trendy restaurants, not to mention the fascinating historical structures like the above-mentioned castles and lighthouses.
There are also some hotels you may wish to consider around Loch Arkaig. These also offer stunning loch views, but, thanks to their tranquil setting away from the hub of the action, they make a more serene home base from which to set out.
Finally, there is also the option to base yourself a kilometre or so further down Loch Ness at Invermoriston, a beautiful village on the west shore of the waters.
There’s an extensive choice of hotels in Fort Augustus offering a view of the loch. A number of these are family-friendly establishments, which typically are more flexible about offering adjoining rooms, and often provide play areas to keep little ones occupied.
As well as hotels, there are a number of small cottages and apartments that may suit families, or those travelling in a group. Budget hotels and guesthouses are also available in Fort Augustus, and propose competitive alternatives to their costlier counterparts. If cosy home comforts are more your thing, bed and breakfasts might be just what you’re after.
With choices that range from 2 to 4 stars, Fort Augustus hotels are able to accommodate every budget and every preference. Lavish 4-star options like the Glenwood Apartments are ideally suited for romantic getaways and special occasions, while budget-friendly properties, such as theThe Silverfjod supply practical amenities for family reunions and backpacking excursions.
Urquhart Castle combines wild natural beauty with more than 1,000 years of history. You can admire the ruined walls of the castle from many places around the loch, but its true romantic beauty and dramatic Highland history only really comes to life when you visit.
Offering stunning views over Loch Ness, Urquhart was once the greatest castle in the Highlands. As you ascend its Grant Tower you can imagine how Medieval sentries once scanned the beauty of the waters for signs of invasion. However, the views aren’t quite as attractive when you peer into a miserable prison cell that is said to have held the legendary Gaelic bard, Domhnall Donn. The ruined great hall can still conjure images of fantastic feasts and, if you listen hard enough, you may just hear the instruments of the minstrels that accompanied the lavish banquets.
With the Great Glen as its iconic backdrop, this castle is where Saint Columba is said to have worked miracles in the 6th century, where acts of chivalry and defiance provided inspiration during the Wars of Independence, and where the MacDonald clan fought with the Crown for power.
Mystery shrouds Loch Ness itself, like the silvery mist that covers the lake on winter mornings. Tales of a large monster living beneath the dark expanse of water have hit the headlines since that first photograph emerged in 1933. With thousands of eye-witness accounts, there are numerous boat trips and Nessie tours that offer you a chance to catch ‘that snap’.
After your boat trip, you can enjoy a picnic by the loch or take an easy cycle ride along the Caledonian Canal from Fort Augustus.
