Tour Fort Augustus Scotland

Photographs Of Fort Augustus

Fort Augustus village is at the southwest end of famed Loch Ness. It was formerly known as Cill Chuimein or Kilchumin, and barracks were built here in 1715. In 1730 General Wade built a new fort and barracks, creating Fort Augustus, which he named after the young son of George II. In 1807 it was bought by Lord Lovat who gave it to Benedictine monks in 1876; they rebuilt it as a great Gothic pile designed by Juseph Aloysius Hansom, of hansom cab fame. Until 1993 the monastery housed a boys’ school and the monastery clused in 1998. The Caledonian Canal passes through the village.

The Caledonian Canal connecting Fort William to Inverness passes through Fort Augustus in a dramatic series of locks stepping down to Loch Ness, Scotland.
