Take it easy at this unique and tranquil getaway. Briar Bank, a traditional stone cottage a few minutes stroll from the centre of the picturesque village of Fort Augustus and Loch Ness is the perfect location for keen mountain bikers, munro baggers or walkers. There are many outstanding hikes and trails nearby with the most popular being the Great Glen Way. The cottage comfortably sleeps four guests and has recently been modernised but retains many of its original features and character.

The space
Nearly 300 years old, traditional and rustic Briar Bank cottage has been home to seven generations of our family. Now newly renovated, it is a traditional cottage with modern amenities.

The kitchen, sitting room and bathroom are downstairs. The kitchen includes an oven/hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, and incorporates a dining area. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms: a double and a twin. All bed linen and towels are provided. Washing line and clothes pegs are available for use in the back garden.

Relax in the garden to singing birds; regular visitors include robins, blackbirds, wrens, tits, chaffinches, goldfinches, thrushes, starlings, wood pigeons, collared doves and pheasants. The front garden is secluded and gets the best of the sun in the morning and afternoon, and the back garden gets the sun late afternoon and evening. The cottage has several folding chairs and tables for you to move around taking advantage of the sun and spacious gardens.

With days spent exploring the great outdoors and nights unwinding by the cosy log fire, Briar Bank offers you a home away from home.
