“excellent hostel in a perfect location”
Reviewed January 22, 2007

Morags Lodge is an excellent hostel, we stayed out of season and recieved a warm welcome, the place was really cosy and warm as it was pretty cold outside! The rooms are very clean with en suite power showers. We had one of the newer rooms and it was perfect. The kitchens and eating areas are kept really well and they serve good food at reasonable prices. The bar is cosy with an open fire and they even provide local entertainment on some evenings with local singers.
Fort Augustus is a quaint village in a beautiful setting and I would much prefer it to Fort William but it is only 40 minutes away and there is a local bus to get you there. There are loads of walks by the canal, boat trips in the season on the lough. Fort Augustus has a few nice local bars with 'The Bothy' serving the best pub grub. Would highly recommend a trip to this beautiful place in the highlands and it introduces you to the real scotland. To hire a car would be great as you get to see so much more but haggis tours are also available. Ned does a good show on the clansmen of scotland which gives you some history on both the life and the famous scottish kilt. Go and enjoy!

For a cheap option, this place can't be beat. The hostel is very clean, very comfortable (luscious leather sofas in lounge!) and all the rooms are ensuite - which is simply brilliant! We stayed in a 6 person room (3 bunks) with very comfortable beds. Only minor complaint is that is was quite hot in the room - but with the great weather we were having, you couldn't really complain. 3 minute walk in to town, great bar and AMAZINGLY friendly staff. Highly recommend it! Breakfast was cheap and yummy too (even had peanut butter, my fave!)

Had an overnight stay must be one of the best budget accomodation you can either have breakfast, dinner or self catering exceptionally clean and very well positioned for exploring Fort Augustus and surrounding areas. Has free internet access and its own bar
and very nice comfy sofas to relax on in their reception lounge area. I live in Scotland and would recommend this lodge to anyone and It was very good to see so many tourists using it as they will go home with a very good impression of Scottish Hospitality.
