The LoftThe Loft is the upper floor of my husband's wood-working shop (not in use while we have guests!). It is across the yard from our house, which is situated in the fields just outside the village of Fort Augustus. The barn was hand-built with the timber from local trees about ten years ago, and The Loft converted to a cosy space with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. We are a fifteen-minute walk from the centre of the village, but in a secluded half-wild garden, down by the old mill-stream.
Auchterawe House, in Auchterawe ForestThis part of the Scottish Highlands is a truly stunning area with an abundance of wildlife, beautiful views, walks and places of interest. Auchterawe House is a perfect place for walkers, hikers, cyclists and keen fishers. Auchterawe House is set in the woods of Auchterawe Forest. Take a cruise to see Nessie the Loch Ness Monster or stop off at the Caledonian Canal Centre in Fort Augustus. In Fort Augustus there are several pubs and restaurants to choose from.
Field HouseThe Field House sits on the edge of a hayfield just outside Fort Augustus. It is a warm and intimate space, with a living and dining area with spectacular views of the fields and hills, an ensuite shower room, a galley kitchen and two single beds in the loft. The decking is frequented by game birds, hares and owls, and highland cattle graze in the neighbouring field. Fort Augustus and Loch Ness are a short walk away, and the house is perfectly located for exploring the highlands further afield.
