Fort Augustus is a "Loch Ness" cruise port. It is located at the southwestern end of the famous Loch Ness lake, in Scotland's Highlands. The small town has population under 1,000.
Local economy is heavily dependent on tourism. The Caledonian Canal connecting Fort William to Inverness passes through Fort Augustus down to Loch Ness via a series of locks. Regular river cruises on Loch Ness are operated by the small boat Glen Massan (shipowner The Majestic Line).
