Details

Experience Old School 11 luxury self-catering apartment, located in what is arguably the best place to stay around Loch Ness. Fort Augustus Abbey conversion, renamed “The Highland Club” has been sympathetically restored to provide stylish and very desirable luxury holiday apartments with many added facilities, like a heated swimming pool and spa, snooker room and tennis court, set in twenty acres of beautifully manicured grounds on the waterfront at Loch Ness.

Old School 11 apartment enjoys a sunny first floor position within the complex, offering southerly views of mountains across the cloister gardens of the old abbey. With two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, it is spacious enough to accommodate four adults and a baby in comfort and cosy enough for couples. In keeping with everything else, the apartment is furnished throughout with quality Oak furniture and top of the range equipment, including a large Panasonic smart TV. The kitchen is fully integrated with granite work surfaces and there is a king size bed in the master bedroom.
The apartment is just a short walk from the village of Fort Augustus with a good tourist information office. Leave your car parked in our dedicated parking space and stroll into the village for a cruise on Loch Ness or a night out in one of the local eateries and bars. There are also wonderful walking opportunities from the doorstep to suit all levels of fitness.

Closer to home, try a visit to the on-site Boathouse restaurant for a pleasant drink and a meal whilst enjoying panoramic views of Loch Ness and the mountains from your table or keep fit with a game on the tennis court or a swim in the indoor heated pool.
Facilities at the Highland Club are all free for our guests to enjoy.

    The Highland Club (former Fort Augustus Abbey) is a dominant feature in the village of Fort Augustus, so one should have little difficulty in finding the main entrance which is just off the main A82. This road is the main route to Fort Augustus from both north from Inverness and south from Fort William.
