Kintore Self Catering Holiday cottage is situated in the village of Fort Augustus at the head of Loch Ness in the highlands of Scotland.
There are great opportunities to participate in both summer and winter activities including Walking, fishing, cycling, climbing skiing and much more ...
In the village you can find out all about the Caledonian Canal in the Heritage Centre whilst the Clansman Centre gives you an insight into life in the Scottish highlands over 500 years ago.
There are daily cruises on Loch Ness from Fort Augustus and there is also the new fast RIB trips to Urquhart Castle both of which leave a short walk from the cottage.
For golfers there is a lovely golf course and visitors are more than welcome, with green fees paid either daily or weekly.
If you take your bikes with you then you are in for a treat with some great cycle routes. The easiest being a trip along the canal side and the more energetic trails within the forestry. Something for all - big or small.
The rare breeds farm is worth a visit and you can see some unusual farm animals and birds.
Fishing in the highlands is magnificent with salmon and trout fishing on Loch Ness and the surrounding rivers and on the hill lochs. Sea fishing is also available only a short drive from the cottage. Details can be obtained locally regarding permits and tackle.
For the more adventurous, travelling 32 miles down to Fort William, you can climb Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Britain. Fort William is also considered the outdoor capital of Scotland. Also located around Fort William is Aonoch Mor which has a chairlift climbing up 1200m to give access to incredible views with skiing in winter, parascending and mountain biking in the summer months.
The Isle of Skye can be reached in just over one hour passing the spectacular Eilean Donan Castle.
There are several restaurants, bars, hotels and shops within the village and are all only a short walk from the cottage so there is no need to take the car. Weather permitting you are able to have a bar meal and/or a drink on the canal side with picnic tables situated outside a couple of the pubs.
For those inclined to do a bit of shopping, Inverness is only 32 miles to the north. Inverness is the capital of the highlands and awarded Millennium City status and has excellent shopping in and around the beautiful River Ness which runs through the city.
