Access Statement

This access statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with access needs, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer all our guests/visitors.

Introduction

We are situated in a quiet position on the edge of Fort Augustus village. We have rural views of fields and hills to the front and the Golf Course and the Caledonian canal is behind us. Just a 10 minute walk to the village along a well lit tarmac path with gradual inclines up and down. 2 minutes by car.

3 steps up to our front door but once inside we have 5 bedrooms, 3 of which are on the ground floor with level access to the dining room and outside deck.

We serve a choice of 4 different breakfasts and use local ingredients where possible. We make our own Scotch pancakes and serve jams home made from damsons and plums grown in our own garden.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01320 366409 or email corrieliath@gmail.com.
