A village called Fort Augustus

Village of around 670 inhabitants is a must for tourists.  It is on the Caledonian canal where small, medium and large boats are passing through to reach either the North Sea or the Atlantic. Hundreds of boats are passing during the high season, and, during Winter some visitors from Russia or China are coming to watch the five locks (denivelation of 12.9 meters).  The village has various shops and a lot of B&Bs and two hotels plus luxurious apartments located at the former Abbey.

    Being on the southern tip of Loch Ness, Fort Augustus is a busy little place. A lot of the tour companies stop there and visitors can admire the impressive succession of locks, take a walk along to the loch and also take a boat trip to try and catch a sight of Nessie!!   :D
