At the southern tip of Loch Ness, sitting astride the Caledonian Canal, is the village of Fort Augustus – a popular stop for road-trippers touring Loch Ness.
To do:

Not far away
level ground access and not far to walk and also see the Harry Potter viaduct

We travel with a dog. So our room was adjacent to the hotel with its own front area fenced for the dog. Welcome chews, bowls and towels. Can park direclty outside to offload and wonderful view from rooms. Bistro is dog friendly -for all meals. Dog not allowed in carpeted area . The bistro is directly next to accommodation. There are 6/7 units . All done up in jan 2018 to an excellent standard. Food in bistro is excellent. You can get packages to include meals etc . A spa is going to be built as part of their improvements . The hotel is a 5 min walk to the lochs, where you can watch boats transcend the Lochs or go for a walk.

Beds are very high in the chalet. There is a big step up to the bath and shower, otherwise flat
