The attractive village of Fort Augustus
on the shores of Loch Ness provides the setting for this spacious
property, which is located at the edge of the village and surrounded
by natural unspoilt woodland.
Standing detached within its own large garden, Corrie Liath makes
a fine holiday base for a large family (or two families holidaying
together), and radiates a bright and airy feel. Running through
the center of the village is the Caledonian Canal, which is a
major attraction. This, together with its golf course (adjacent
to the property), pony trekking, forest walks, fishing, boat trips
on Loch Ness (all within 5 minutes' walk) as well as the abbey,
selection of shops, coffee shops and pubs, has made the village
a popular holiday destination for enjoying the wonderful countryside
in this part of Scotland.
Fort Augustus, situated in the heart of the Great Glen provides
a superb base for exploring the Highlands. To the north-east lies
Inverness (32miles), capital of the Highlands, with excellent
shops, cinemas, theatre, restaurants and attractions such as the
Culloden Battlefield with its visitor center, Urquart Castle and
monster visitor center.
To the south-west lies the town of Fort William (30miles) in
the shadow of Ben Nevis. Hill climbing and mountaineering are
popular in the region, and magnificent views can be admired from
the Nevis range by taking a trip on the gondola and where skiing
can be enjoyed during the winter season.
Water sports are available at the Great Glen Water Park, which
is but a short drive away. Day trips to the Isle of Skye, Applecross,
Ullapool and Aviemore, as well as the magnificent Glen Coe can
be easily undertaken.
