Customer Reviews of Woodbine Cottage, Fort Augustus, sleeps 4
1st comment: We have been to Woodbine cottage 9 times and still love going there. We are keen mountain bikers and find it’s location ideal for accessing the forests and trails. The cottage is very comfortable with all the necessaries you need for a great holiday. Having a washer and drier is a godsend especially when your clothes are muddy from a day in the saddle! Fort Augustus is a great village with plenty of good eating places, an excellent butchers and good shops if you run out of essentials. April 2012.
2nd comment: Plenty of parking space - would probably take three cars. The local butchers shop is excellent, but be warned, it is not open on Mondays. Sept 2011.
3rd comment: Very quaint, excellent location. Decor a bit dated. A welcoming bottle of wine and shortcake, a lovely touch. Aug 2010.
4th comment: Property was in a wonderful location, down a quiet lane but only minutes from the centre of the village. Secure secluded garden with nice seating area. Property clean and spacious. Would definitely go back. July 2010.

8th comment: This house was ideal for my family. It had everything we needed. Very comfortable and warm. Very clean also. In an excellent location, for both Fort William and Inverness. The enclosed garden was suitable for young children. Would recommend. Would book again. March 2010
9th comment: Fort Augustus is a charming village with plenty of activity - we loved the powerboat, the ceilidh, seeing the locks in action and nice local pubs and shops. Woodbine Cottage was ideally located just a couple of minutes from all of these. Spacious cottage, well appointed with everything we needed. Clean and well maintained. Thoughtful welcome pack of wine, milk and biscuits. Lovely garden, handy parking space. Aug 2009.
