A friendly and helpful welcome by David Grindlay.
Wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature.
The apartment was really comfortable, very clean and nice. There is everything you need.

UNIQUE PLACE TO SPEND YOUR HOLIDAYS

  • 5 of 5
The flat accorded to the description, was clean and well-maintained. We had all we needed for a satisfying stay. On arrival we were shown arround and found a bottle of wine and biscuits as a nice welcoming gift.
There is so much to see and do in the area that we found no time to use all the facilities the property offers.
Beyond doubt we can recommand this flat to everyone.

SUPER HOMEBASE TO EXPLORE THE WEST HIGHLANDS

  • 5 of 5
The Abbey is a wonderful relaxed place to stay, facilities exact as discribed.
After arrival we enjoyed a tour around the Abbey
Enjoyed the swimmingpool and sauna after Climbing the Ben Nevis.
Food at the boathouse on the premises is exellent.
The apartment was wel equiped and has is own wifi
I'm not enthausiast about restaurant the Bothy, they try to fill you up and get you out as fast as possible (one minute between starter and main course and the bill on your table while your still enjoying your wine)
The forestwalks around Fort Augustus are very nice
I higly recommand the Abbey to everyone

Owner's Response: Well done for climbing Ben Nevis - I've not done it yet!

For a relaxed (but a wee bit more expensive) meal, try the Lovat Hotel.

Thanks for the review.

WONDERFUL PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is everything it is advertised as. Perfect for two, spacious, very clean, comfortable bed, great bath. We enjoyed the location as a central place for day trips and the small Village is very scenic. We went in March and not everything in the Village was open but if you like a small village with great scenery in every direction it is ideal.
Welcoming bottle of wine was a nice touch.
We can recommend highly. Neil & Katie, Ontario, Canada

4 star rated (by Visit Scotland 2011) luxury self catering apartment condo with use of shared private indoor pool, sauna & steam room on the banks of Loch Ness. The apartment is located within the historic St Benedicts Abbey (now called The Highland Club) which has been sympathetically upgraded to modern standards but retaining most original features. The Highland Club is sited in 20 acres of private grounds with many on-site amenities including outdoor barbecue areas and the Boathouse Restaurant. Visit the local restaurants, bars and hotels which are only a five minute walk away.

Watch cricket on the pitch across from the apartment (summer only) or have a game of tennis on the private court, all within the Abbey grounds. Have a drink by the canal, while watching the boats pass through the 5 locks and swing bridge in the heart of town. Cruise on Loch Ness from the pier just outside the Abbey grounds. Maybe you will see the Monster. Explore the extensive local path network or visit nearby historic Urquhart Castle.

Visit at Aonach Mor ski area (27miles), take the gondola to the summit for fantastic views over Fort William and Loch Linnhe. Try the cross country and downhill mountain bike trails, they are Visit the Moray Firth to watch the dolphins. Boat trips depart from Inverness which is about 55minutes drive

Go dolphin watching - boats leave from Inverness (55mins by car)to go dolphin watching on the Moray Firth, probably the most reliable place to spot dolphins in Scotland.

Located in the Heart of the Highlands, the apartment is less than hours drive to Eilan Donan Castle, Isle of Skye, Cairngorm National Park and many other popular destinations.
