The Old Armoury benefits greatly from direct access to the Brothers Wing courtyard and is in close proximity to parking and therefore recommended for low mobility guests. The courtyard opens out to the beautiful Monastery lawn with views over Loch Ness.

Built within the bastion walls the original fort the Brothers' Wing is a historically significant area of the Abbey, as this housed the original armoury defence of the fort. This apartment is situated on the ground floor and accessed by a flat communal terrace, therefore is particularly suited to guests with low mobility. The terrace offers immediate access to the front lawns of the Monastery which slope gently down to the shore line of Loch Ness. Tastefully decorated with historical prints of the original fort, coupled with modern interiors. The open plan living area also offers a double sofa bed for those on tight budgets, and the kitchen is fitted to a high standard.
