House was well equiped but had v small kitchen (which did have all new electricsl kit). Big enclosed garden which our dog did enjoy. House is very near to the canal so watching boats go down the canal is an enjoyable pastime. Fort Augustus has god restaurants, bars and tourist shops.

Really enjoyed the week, great location. Having had major surgery 9 weeks previously it was so relaxing. Would recommend it, but be aware of the very steep narrow stairs.
