Essential Fort Augustus Facts

The Lovat is located in the centre of Fort Augustus, a centuries-old village in the Highlands.  It is situated at the southern edge of Loch Ness.  The village is popular with tourists visiting the area to explore the loch, as well as surrounding sights like the Caledonian Canal and the Great Glen Way.

Book your stay at The Lovat today and experience the best of Fort Augustus and the local area.  Call us on 01456 490000 alternatively make a reservation online.

Fort Augustus is situated on the Great Glen Way and the Caledonian Canal, halfway between Inverness and Fort William.  The River Oich runs through the village.

The original name for the village was Cill Chuimein, literally “the Church of Chuimein”, but became known as Fort Augustus in the early 18th century, after the fort was built by General Wade.  The fort was named after William Augustus, the Duke of Cumberland and son of King George II.  He is historically known as “Butcher Cumberland” for his role in repressing the Jacobite Rising at the Battle of Culloden in 1746.

Near Fort Augustus, you’ll find some of the best attractions the Highlands has to offer.  Urquhart Castle, on the shores of Loch Ness, is a 30-minute drive away.  The picturesque Eilean Donan Castle, next to Loch Duich, is an hour’s drive away.  Glencoe and the Isle of Skye are also within easy driving distance of 1½ hrs.

Since the opening of the Great Glen Way in 2002, Fort Augustus has become popular with walkers and cyclists that choose the Lovat as a place to rest on their Highlands’ adventure.

The Lovat offers luxury accommodation in Fort Augustus – call us on 01456 490000 to book your stay today.
