  • They shut the door as we were walking towards it at 16.20. The middle of August 2020. Lots of visitors around. They clearly think they don't need the trade. There were four people sat at a bench...  more »
  • Delicious and fresh brunch, with friendly service - very affordable in the centre of Fort Augustus. There looked to be some good lunch options too. Good covid measures in place.  more »

  • Nice place to stop for a coffee and light meal. It’s kept pretty tidy but the toilets were in need of a tidy up round 3 and I’m pretty sure the lady next to me was out of toilet paper as I heard her come out and get some paper towels. The staff seemed friendly but also caught up in their own conversations as once I was handed my change the girl walked off before I could ask a question. It’s a fair place to stop by though
  • Interesting canal history, very nice cafe and gift shop: Stopped in Fort Augustus on our way South, from visiting Loch Ness. Fort Augustus seems a much nicer place to stop in than Fort William (in our opinion). The Caledonian Canal centre is literally a stone's throw from the canal and shows the history and development of the canal, which is educational for all ages. There's a very nice cafe with lovely food and a gift shop too. The cafe/seating area is nice and modern but not that big and because of where the centre's located, it can get quite busy - so if you're in a hurry, it may be better to eat early, to avoid waiting.
