This unique historic building, lovingly restored to its former splendour and also my beautiful apartment in the capital city of Edinburgh provide the perfect combination. As we use these properties as our second home we have paid particular attention to the furnishings and decor so that you also feel the home factor. I am sure you will be very comfertable in these spectacular places.

Mairi Stewart purchased this apartment in 2005

If you are visiting the Highlands there is just no better place to be. Not only are you so centrally located that you can visit all main sights within a day trip in all directions, but you also have the spectacular abbey to explore with all its sports and leisure facilities.

Combining your visit with a trip to Edinburgh just rounds off your experience of Scotland. Please ask me for a combination offer with my Edinburgh apartment.

This is a very beautiful place to stay. The Abbey and the property of the Highland Club are amazing. We had fun in the community billiards/club room and had a nice break swimming in the heated pool, sauna and steam room. Moat House number 3 needs updated photos; the current photos do not really show how spacious and nice the apartment is. We were very happy to find a nicer and larger apartment than we expected. The apartment is nicely furnished and very clean. I think the Moat house probably has the best views of any apartment. The apartment overlooks the interior courtyard which is beautiful. We had spent time in Edinburgh and wished we had allowed more than 4 days staying at the Highland Club. We did not want to leave the Highland Club. We enjoyed having 2 dinners at the Boat house restaurant on the grounds of the Highland Club. We enjoyed the views of Loch Ness and the food in the Boat House. Outside the club grounds is the village of Ft. Augustus with nice restaurants and shops. We took a speed boat ride across Loch Ness which was a lot of fun. The boat tour operator is located just on the edge of the Highland Club. Loch Ness is a great place to stay in the Highlands with many villages and castles nearby to visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your extremely positive coments. I am glad you made use of the comforts and facilities of the club lounge. Also a nice place to mingle with other guests ! Also thanks for your compliments on the proportions and furnishings of the apartment - I put a lot of thought and effort into transforming this apartment into a cosy and comfertable haven, while decorating to compliment and enhance the beautiful stonework both inside and outside the apartment, and of course the spectacular windows ! Glad you appreciated ! Yes, I agree, the village is extremely convenient and I am glad you mentioned the speed boat tour. I have that on my list of to dos for my next trip. Have heard so many positive things about that ! Thanks for visiting - it was a pleasure dealing with you and having you to stay !

We were looking for our family of six for a relaxing location also suitable for a base for one day trips to the Highlands and the isles: we found all of that and much more. Fort Augustus is linked with good roads to the main attractions of the Highlands region; good food, groceries and a supermarket are available in place and Inverness with its bigger stores are in one hour of car distance, for more sophsticated needs. The flat is lovely, very comfortable, completely furnished and accessorized with all the more useful electrical apparels. Really noteworthy is the view of the internal courtyard of the abbey from the wide windows of the living room. The flat is well located inside a benedictine abbey in a complex where it is possible to play lots of sports and games indoor and outdoor. The library/billiard room obtained from the old refectory is wonderful for relaxing in the evenings. With our children, after our daily trips, we played every sorts of sports in the evening and the bench on the shore of Loch Ness was our favourite place for spotting Nessie at sunsets. Unfortunately we didn't see her, but we are sure next time we will do it.
Finally, Mrs. Claire Lee was very helpful, kind and complete in giving us all the information needed for our stay.

Wir haben in dieser liebvoll und überkomplett ausgestatteten Wohnung eine wunderbare Woche verbracht. Es hat sich sofort das Gefühl von "zu Hause" eingestellt. Am Ufer des Loch Ness lässt es sich wunderbar entspannen. Laufen entlang des Caledonien Canal, Boule oder Croquet, Tennis oder Federball, Tischtennis und vieles mehr: es kommt nie Langeweile auf. Und das eben in einem wunderschönen Ambiente.
Die Vermieterin ist sehr bemüht ihren Gästen den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten, hat viele Tipps vorbereitet und steht jederzeit als Ansprechpartner zu Verfügung. Danke Mairi, für diesen schönen Urlaub!

Eine sehr schöne und sehr saubere Ferienwohnung die alles bietet, super Küchenaustattung und Waschmaschine. Wir wurden sehr freundliche empfangen. In der Wohnung findet man alles was man über die Anlage und die Umgebung wissen muss. Wlan hat super geklappt. Nur TV war nicht gut eingestellt. Haben das nur wegen der WM gemerkt. Das Abbey liegt wundervoll und sehr friedlich direkt am Loch Ness. Der Ort Fort Augustus ist wunderschön, tolle Möglichkeiten zum Essen zu gehen, sehr gute Ausgangslage für Ausflüge. Sky, Ben Nevis, Glen Coe, der Norden alles wunderbar erreichbar. Runder herum eine gelungene Urlaubswoche in einem der schönsten Domizile die wir je hatten.
Wenn Schottland dann unbedingt hier.

Spellbound from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. What a wonderful place ! After being met by the friendly staff who also took the time to show us around the abbey we were delighted to settle into this fabulous apartment. Everything was spotless and decorated to the highest standards - very tasteful ! The kitchen was eqipped with eveything we needed and we were happy to have the convenience of the local supermarkets and shops just in the village (also the long opening hours is a great service !). The cafes are cute with great baking ! Also the butcher had great produce. What we enjoyed the most about the apartment (apart from the very comfy beds) was the quietness and this breathtaking view of the cloisters and the monastery - we could have sat for hours just gazing out the window if there had not been so many other activities to explore. We loved the club lounge with its comfy chairs - and it was nice to chat to other guests there and get some recommendations from others . The pool was fantastic - never swam in a church before ! The only thing we regretted is that we had only 4 days there - we did not want to leave ! Thank you Mairi for your friendly and prompt resonses to all our mails and the easiness of the booking. We will be again - and definately in combination with your Edinburgh apartment next time !

Nach sehr schönen Tagen in einer perfekten Fewo in St.Andrews hatten wir uns von dieser, als "Luxus-/Traumwohnung" angepriesenen Fewo offensichtlich zu viel versprochen. Der äussere Rahmen der ehemaligen Benediktinerabtei mit herrlichem Park könnte kaum eindrucksvoller sein. Lediglich die würfelartigen, neueren Anbauten verderben das sonst perfekte Bild. Die Wohnung in der ersten Etage erreicht man über ein riesiges Treppenhaus, dass als Ganzstahlkonstruktion einem mittelgrossen Kreiskrankenhaus zur Ehre gereicht hätte. Ein Aufzug, insbesondere für Gäste der 2.und 3. Etage hätte bequem noch Platz - Fehlanzeige! Durch feuerhemmende Schwingtüren erreicht man schliesslich die Wohnung. Diese ist entgegen aller Erwartungen eine ganz simple, bedingt zweckmässig eingerichtete Etagenwohnung mit einfachem Laminatfussboden. Die Sofas im Wozi zu klein, die Stühle am Esstisch klobig schwer und z.T. wackelig. Die diversen Flokatiteppiche sind schmuddelig. Die 2 Schlazi verfügen über relativ kleine Betten und geringe Schrankkapazität (wir hatten für 4 Wochen Schottland entsprechendes Gepäck dabei!). Überwiegend kahle Wände verstärken eher das Gefühl, dass man sich auf ein baldiges Ende des Aufenthaltes freut. Das Innenbad ohne Fenster, dafür mit Dunstabzug und der einzigen stelle sich 4-5 Personen vor, die morgens......! Der Ausblick in den Innenhof mit dem ehemaligen Kreuzgang wäre noch schöner gewesen, wenn die Fenster nicht so schmutzig gewesen wären. Dies trifft übrigens auf die Fenster in der gesamten Anlage zu. Gefühle von Gemütlichkeit und Behaglichkeit können hier u.E. nicht aufkommen.
Die mit schönen Sitzmöbeln eingerichtete Lounge war leider stets ungeheizt und wurde offensichtlich nur äusserst selten gelüftet. Da nur dort das W-LAN funktionierte musste man sich warm anziehen. Gemütlichkeit kommt dort ebenfalls nicht auf. Das Tuch des Snookertables war bereits beschädigt, das Tischfussball funktionierte. Lt. der Vermieterin wird demnächst ein W-LAN-Modem in der Fewo sein.
Die in D lebende Vermieterin ist gut organisiert und stets per mail erreichbar. Vor Ort gibt es einige Helfer/-innen, die sich allerdings recht wenig um den Zustand der jeweiligen Fewos zu kümmern scheinen.
Fazit: wer mit dem Begriff LUXUS wirbt, muss sich auch daran messen lassen. Der tolle äussere Rahmen des ehrwürdigen Klosters findet in der Wohnung keine Fortsetzung. Nur Zweckmässigkeit und einfache, nüchterne Möblierung reicht nicht aus - Luxus geht anders!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliments on the abbey - this is really a spectacular place ! Also thank you for your comments. I am , as always, open and appreciative of any constructive feedback ! I am so sorry you were not happy with the decor of the apartment. This is a point where I get the most positive comments so I am rather disappointed. But as this is a matter of taste I will let guests decide for themselves on the basis of previous reviews, the photographs and the hundreds of positive comments, especially about the furnishings and decor, in the guest book. . The quality of furnishings is high and everything is meticulously checked and replaced if necessary at the end of each season.
Yes, the apartment only has one bathroom , there is no lift ( this is a first floor apartment !) and WiFi is available in the club lounge. (As an extra convenience there will be free WiFi access in the apartment itself from Nov. 2013 !!) . These points are clear in the advertising so I am rather surprised they are used as a foundation for a poor review. This applies also to the sizes of the beds which are a large double ( King Size !) in the main bedroom and two standard size single beds 90x200. This is also clear in the advertising. Dont quite follow the comment that the beds are small .Never heard that before from any guests ! The sofas are also large 2-seaters so provide ample space for 4 .
Sorry you didnt like the fire doors in the public hallways - this however is a legal requirement and safety comes first !
Regarding your point about the temperature in the lounge - as mentioned during your stay, a friendly request to the numerous ground staff is all that it takes.
To future guests - the ground staff and caretakers are extremely approachable and will bend over backwards to help where they can !
I hope you were , in spite of the things that bothered you, still able to enjoy the magic of the Highlands !
