About Mairi Stewart

Dear Scotland Fans !

Originally from Scotland, I have chosen the absolutely best locations for visting my country. 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

Why Mairi Stewart chose Inverness, Loch Ness & Nairn

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.

Fabulous apartment in majestic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure we found when we booked this apartment ! A very cosy and comfertable apartment with great views and lovingly decorated - we loved the wall colour and the artwork ! With the third private sleeping alcove on the upper landing and two bathrooms it was perfect for us as a party of five - it could well be advertsied as a 3-bedroom ! We found this holiday to be great value for money as everything, like swimming pool, sauna, tennis court, pool table...was included in the price. Actually there was so much to do in the abbey that we had trouble getting the kids to go out on trips ! But we did manage to see Skye - wonderful , and we made a very hairy trip to Applecross - which was well worth the formidable drive ! We also had the pleasure to combine our trip to Scotland by staying in the owners Edinburgh apartment - also fantastic ! We would highly recommend this flat especially to anyone with kids - just like staying in Hogwarts ! The owner was extremely friendly and responded immediately to our mails - alltogether a great experience ! Thank you !

Erholsam und gut gelegen

  • 5 of 5

Sehr geräumige Wohnung, mit ausreichend Platz für 4 Personen. Die Matratzen im Kinderzimmer sind leider nicht für erwachsene Kinder geeignet. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, auch eine Waschmaschine befindet sich dort. Das Hallenbad und die Sauna sind sehr schön. Ansonsten schöner Ausgangspunkt für schöne Touren. Gute Restaurants, Supermarkt, Kneipen und Souvenirshops in der näheren Umgebung.

cadre enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

très bel appartement, très bien équipé, dans un cadre idyllique au bord du Loch Ness. Prestations complémentaires de qualité dans l'abbaye (club lounge avec billard, piscine, hamam, sauna, terrains de sport...). Idéal pour une famille de 5 personnes. Très bon accueil.

Top-Level Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Mit dieser Ferienwohnung kann man nichts falsch machen, das gleich vorweg. Wirklich tolle Anlage, eine ehemalige Abtei direkt am Seeufer, mit großem Park drum herum - das hat Stil! Wunderbar ruhig.

Wir waren mit Freunden für ein Woche (Mitte Mai) in der Fewo "Moat House 6" zu Gast. Top Einrichtung, alles neu und hochwertig. Kompakte Küche mit allem, was man braucht (GS, KS, MW, WM). Großes Wohnzimmer, bequeme Betten in den Schlafzimmern im Dachgeschoß.

Die Einrichtungen des Country Club können kostenlos benutzt werden (WLAN, Spa, Fitnessraum, Tennisplätze, Spielülatz, Grillstelle etc.). Die gesamte Anlage wird sehr gut in Schuß gehalten. Obwohl viele Autos auf dem Parkplatz standen, sind wir im Haus kaum anderen Gästen begegnet. Gut für die, die Ruhe suchen.

Bis zum Ortskern mit seiner Handvoll Pubs und Restaurants sind es nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß, direkt am Ufer liegt das Restaurant "Boat House" (war leider immer zu voll).

Sehr gute Gästebetreuung durch das Personal vor Ort, das sich stets aufrichtig nach unserem Befinden erkundigte, wenn wir jemanden trafen.

Abschließend gesagt gibt es kaum etwas, das man hier noch verbessern könnte: WLAN direkt in der Fewo wäre vielleicht das i-Tüpfelchen, aber das im Clubraum ist auch okay. Macht bloß nicht den Fehler und kauft Euch aus Bequemlichkeit einen Zugang zu "BT Wireless" in der Wohnung: die Modemgeschwindigkeit kostet Nerven, trotz 4 von 5 Balken Feldstärke. Dies ist jedoch ein Problem der Telefongesellschaft und nicht eins des Vermieters.

Wärmstens zu empfehlen

  • 5 of 5

Highland Club: Fantastische Anlage, die wir auch gerne mehr genutzt hätten (Zeitmangel). Allein schon durch die Anlage schlendern und das altehrwürdige Gebäude zu genießen war super. Wir sind aus dem Staunen nicht mehr rausgekommen. Auch die Umgebung und Fort Augustus hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für Lebensmittel an 7 Tagen die Woche. Urige Gaststätten mit sehr gutem Essen. Das Flair der Schleusenanlage. Alles traumhaft. Sehr gute zentrale Lage. Viele Highlights sind per Auto gut zu erreichen. Im Umkreis von 1,5 Std. sind viele sehr gute Wandergebiete zu erreichen.

Moat House 6: Hat uns sofort sehr gut gefallen. Die Lage, die Aufteilung und vor allem die sehr geschmackvolle Einrichtung hat uns begeistert. Am liebsten hätten wir das eine, oder andere mit nach Hause genommen ;-) Das ist echt toll gemacht. Es war auch alles da, was man so braucht (Auch Geschirrspüler, Waschmaschine, Trockner !!) und wir hätten gerne noch ein paar Tage dort verbracht. Ein solch tolle Wohnung in einem so alten Gemäuer, das ist wirklich einmalig. In der Wohnung gab es auch ganz viel Infomaterial über die Möglichkeiten, die einem Schottland bietet.

Die Begrüßung durch Lorraine war sehr freundlich und sicher wäre die Betreuung auch toll gewesen. Aber wir brauchten keine Betreuung - weil einach alles bestens war. ;-)

Auch die Abwicklung (Buchung, Infos usw) im Vorfeld war super und konnte mit Mairi auch problemlos in deutsch abgewickelt werden.

Alles in allem: Wir können das Moathose 6 wärmstens weiterempfehlen und würden es jederzeit wieder buchen.
