The parish includes Fort Augustus, and is crossed by the military road from Inverness. Good granite and limestone are obtained in the hills. In this parish is the fine waterfall of Foyers. The living, of the value of £238, is in the presbytery of Abertarff, and in the patronage of Fraser of Lovat. Fort Augustus is the seat of a mission, worth £80 a year.
