Bowmore is a most comfortable and beautifully appointed, newly built bungalow, which stands in a quiet cul de sac in the picturesque Highland village of Fort Augustus (all facilities) at the foot of Loch Ness in Scotland's beautiful Great Glen.
The land on which it stands was once the vegetable patch cultivated by the monks of the Abbey here, and it is still a green and leafy spot. Inside the house has been furnished to the highest standards and offers bright and spacious accommodation. There is a stove in the large sitting room, the dining kitchen has all you could wish in terms of equipment, and there are three elegant bedrooms, the master with king-size bed and en suite facilities.
The shores of Loch Ness are just a few minutes' walk from the cottage and Fort Augustus is where its waters funnel into the Caledonian Canal and tumble down in a series of spectacular locks. One of the most relaxing ways of spending a fine day here is to sit in the sun and watch the yachts passing through while you enjoy your lunch on the terrace of one of the canal-side pubs and eating-places.
The wider area offers many attractions: boat trips on the loch, cycling n the Great Glen Way, walking in the surrounding mountains, fishing, pony trekking, a wonderful array of wildlife, to name but some. Lively Inverness, the 'capital' of the Highlands, can be reached in an hour. Visit historic Castle Urquhart on the way or explore lovely Glens Affric and Cannich. Even a day trip to Skye is easily achieved from Bowmore.
Bed linen, towels, oil-CH heating and electricity are included in the rental. Pets are welcome by arrangement. Sorry, no smoking in the cottage. Wi-fi included, subject to provider.
