Wonderful property!

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
Owner's Response: Thanks glad you had a nice vacation

Lovely apartment in stunning location!

We booked this apartment for a last minute break because it was cheaper than a lot of other property that was available at short notice and what a find! The Highland Club is beautiful and in a stunning spot while the apartment is well equipped, snug and smart. And arriving to a bottle of wine and shortbread is a winner!

The weather was typical so we made good use of the ping pong table and pool at the club. In the apartment itself the bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the lounge is comfy. The wifi in the club lounge is very handy as the club is a total mobile dead spot (on EE at least).

I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.

Amazing place to stay - us Aussies loved it!

You will want for absolutely nothing when staying in this apartment. It has all you need as does the location. Fort Augustus is a wonderful place to stay. We were out every day in our hire car doing day trips to Inverness, Fort William and many other places. Urquhart castle is not far away as are many other wonderful attractions. The apartment is warm and cosy which was great for us Aussies who found the climate freezing but had a great time. The club room was also fantastic with free wifi, I used it every morning to skype home to my daughter and after a day out and about in the car it was good to be able to grab a few drinks or a bottle of wine and head down there with my partner to relax and play a few games of billiards or simply relax and do nothing. The couches are very comfy too! There are boardgames, magazines and so a family staying here would find the kids entertained. We had dinner at the boathouse restaurant which was very nice, the walk around the gardens just to get there is lovely. David who is the owner of this unit was very easygoing and I've recommended this to friends of ours who live in Ireland as a top place to stay. Oh and one last thing...we saw lots of red deer not far from here, they are amazing. Love love love Scotland and especially this place, we're actually thinking of buying an apartment here! Thankyou again David, your apartment is exceptional and very well fitted out - the bed was the most comfy we encountered on our 7 week holiday around Ireland and Scotland - that's worth a million dollars!!!

Owner's Response: Great review, thanks.

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.
