    Eriskay is one of three former canal worker cottages making up a pretty hamlet of holiday homes at Kytra Lock, a tranquil and secluded waterside spot just outside Fort Augustus on the Caledonian Canal.The cottages boast polished wood floors downstairs and period fireplaces. The use of traditional fabrics also adds to the delightful ambience of these lock keepers' cottages, which have been recently restored by Scottish Canals.

    Eriskay Cottage sits on the east bank of the canal and is accessed by walking across the lock gates. Parking is on the west side of the canal....

Had a wonderful stay at Mingulay Cottage. Beautiful location 2 miles up the canal from Fort Augustus. Boats travelling through the lock by day and perfectly peaceful at night.

Fantastic location. Beautifully kept cottage. Perfect for a quiet holiday away from it all. As it was 2 miles down the canal, we never ended up calling to the local for a drink. But the scenery and remote location did make it perfect to hide away from the world with a glass of wine on the lock.
