Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Old School 11 luxury first-floor holiday apartment at The Highland Club at Loch Ness is probably the best location for couples and family holidays anywhere in the Highlands.

The Loch Ness region
Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland is a land of mountains, glens and beautiful lakes, one of Europe's last wilderness areas. It is a place where nature still thrives, where eagles and wildcats still roam freely. It has a rich and vibrant culture and a heritage still very much in evidence to this day. The Highlands is a beautiful place most welcoming to visitors who drive, ride or fly into Inverness, the Highland capital. People come from all parts the world to visit ancient castles, visit whisky distilleries, taste the fabulous cuisine and learn about the turbulent history of the Scottish clans in places like the Culloden battlefield Centre. Most of all though, people visit the Highlands for the dramatic scenery and to experience the natural beauty that is unrivalled anywhere in Europe and which is unique to Scotland. Of course you may want to indulge in a little of what we are famous for at Loch Ness, Nessie spotting. Our apartment is situated in a location where The Loch Ness monster has been seen!
Loch Ness at Fort Augustus, known locally as the 'Gateway to Loch Ness' as it is situated at the southern end of the lake and is an ideal location for touring both sides of the loch. Inverness, Fort William and the scenic west coast are all within an hour's drive. Nearby you can walk to Fort Augustus golf course for a round of golf, choose to cruise on Loch Ness or the Caledonian Canal, visit the ruins and exhibition at the famous and historic Urquhart Castle or investigate the Culloden battlefield where Bonnie Prince Charlie was defeated at the last battle to be fought there. There are many walks and cycle ways in the area suit all levels of fitness from challenging hill walks to gentle canal tow-path walks.
The Highland Club is just a couple of minutes walk from Fort Augustus village where you will find a small selection of restaurants pubs shops and things to do, or stay within the 20 acres of private landscaped grounds of the Highland Club and enjoy eating in the onsite "Boathouse restaurant" overlooking Loch Ness.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are pleased that you enjoyed all the facilities and location of Old School 11 apartment. May I just say that some owners at The Highland Club charge extra for use of the facilities but Rosemary and I have never been keen on "extras" so offer fully inclusive prices which are nevertheless still lower than that of many of the other apartments.

"Reasonably priced, quality accommodation in a great location."
Spent 5 days during October. Perfect apartment for a family with children. My children especially loved the indoor swimming pool and the adventure playground. We enjoyed meals at the restaurant on site overlooking Loch Ness which is stunning on a clear day. The apartment is well furnished to a high standard and fully equipped with lovely views of the lawn/giant chess board. This a great base to explore the Highlands from or to just relax and enjoy the local area and the amenities on site. We loved it so much we are returning again next October.
Hi Rosemary and I are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our apartment, we are very proud of it. We look forward to welcoming you back,if there is anything you would like us to arrange for your return please let us know and we will do our best.
