Fort Augustus, Scotland, is located right in the centre of the Highlands in Northern Scotland, on the southern shore of Loch Ness. It is exactly halfway between Inverness and Fort William, and therefore could be the ideal place to base yourself if you don't want to keep moving from one accommodation to the other, but still want to discover as much as possible around the region. Your choice would also be wise, because even though Fort Augustus only has a population of around six hundred fifty people, there are a few really nice hostels in Fort Augustus, Scotland, that offer great facilities for budget prices.

Most tourists arrive in the area to visit Loch Ness and to try to catch a glimpse of its mysterious monster, Nessie. During the past century, there have been many accounts of a long-necked, dinosaur-like creature that dwells in the lake. Although most of the evidence of Nessie's existence has been proven to be fake, the interest in the mysterious animal has been unrelenting ever since.

When visiting the area, your first stop could be the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, where you can learn more about the history of Nessie sightings, see the reconstruction of what she might look like, and look at the massive book that was signed by all the people who claim to have seen the monster. After this, you could walk along the lake and try to spot Nessie yourself. However, if it does not work, do not be disappointed -- the best part of the day is still waiting for you. You can visit Urquhart Castle, a magnificent castle ruin that is located right on the shore of the lake.

However, if you decide to wander off in the other direction, your best bet is visiting Fort William, where you can attempt to hike to the top of Scotland's highest mountain, the amazingly beautiful Ben Nevis.
