  6. A beautiful cottage set in idyllic surroundings. Fully equipped with everything you may require. A* accommodation. Oct 2010.
  7. It’s situation next to a river, close proximity to shops and eating places and the beautiful surrounding scenery. July 2010.
  8. Secluded yet in the heart of Fort Augustus. Very peaceful with wonderful views by the river. We loved it! June 2010.
  9. Comfortable, well appointed and in an excellent location. June 2010.
  10. River cottage was wonderful - it had everything needed and more from a coffee machine, stoppers for the wine bottle and even a fishing rod! The location was perfect for taking a coffee up to watch the boats go through the canal and then sitting in complete privacy at the side of the river. The best cottage we’ve ever stayed in! May 2010.
  11. The location was excellent and the views from the back of the cottage were lovely. Sept 2009.
  12. Great location and very clean! Aug 2009.
  13. River Cottage is better than the pictures make it look, it is a great place to stay and tour around Loch Ness. Peaceful and quiet place, clean and well looked after had a good feeling to the house, wish it was mine. July 2009.
  14. A fantastic property and location to relax and let the world take care of it’s self. May 2009.
  15. Don’ t know which was the most fantastic, the village (Fort Augustus), the friendly people, the beautiful scenery with the river streaming just outside kitchen window - or the cottage itself. Holiday in Paradise! July 2008.
  16. River Cottage is ideally located close to local amenities and was fully equiped with everything we needed. Extremely peaceful and relaxing. Aug 2008.
  17. The photography for this cottage does not do it justice. The location could not be more beautiful with the garden and house being secluded and private (the only house by the Fort Augustus locks with river access), but still in the centre of the tourist destination of Fort Augustus. July 2008.
  18. Perfect location for all amenities. Lots to see and do. May 2008.
