Sonas B&B at Fort Augustus

Full Description

SONAS is Gaelic for “peace” and Lorna and Jimmy Service will be trying to make your stay as peaceful and comfortable as possible. Nevertheless, there is much to do in and around FortAugustus and you are just 200 metres from the centre of this historic village which stands majestically at the south western end of Loch Ness.

Walkers and cyclists a speciality

Sonas is personally run by Jimmy and Lorna Service and a Scottish welcome awaits you.

Set in the picturesque village of Fort Augustus at the head of Loch Ness, Sonas is well place for touring as it is set in the geographical centre of the Highlands.

From here to the west and northwest you can visit the Isle of Skye, Glen Coe, the Road to the Isles, the Isle of Mull, the stunning Applecross Peninsular, the rugged west coast scenery. East you can visit the city of Inverness, Elgin, Culloden Battlefield, romantic CawdorCastle, FortGeorge and an abundance of Speyside Distilleries. Southeast is Aviemore and the grandeur of the Grampian mountains and northeast magnificent scenery towards Durness and John O’Groats. Each of these can be completed in a day from FortAugustus, so a stay of a week or more will still leave you with more to see next year.

Close by it is easy to while away a few hours watching vessels climbing the staircase of locks on the Caledonian Canal, just a few hundred metres from Sonas. On the loch itself there are boat trips including a high-speed Loch Ness Express which makes a thrilling dash to and from the historic ruin of UrquhartCastle.
