    Get yourself to Scotland and then head for the Highlands! Fort Augustus village is on the A82 half away along the Great Glen. (Inverness - 33 miles / Fort William - 31 miles). From the petrol station, turn north towards Inverness, go past the car park and then left up the steep hill called Bunoich Brae - we are just on the left where you will see our sign.
