The Scottish Highlands region
Once a Hanoverian Fort, a Monastery and a school, The Highland Club encompasses some outstanding architectural Grade A Listed buildings. Set in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland, it is a great place from which to explore all the Highlands can offer young and old alike, whether for nature lovers/hillwalkers, for families or for that romantic getaway. Situated half way along the Great Glen, this glacial valley has spectacular vistas whether you are on one of the many footpaths, marked cycleways or cruising along the canal itself from The North Sea to the picturesque Western Isles. Equidistant from Fort William and Inverness and with many activities all within an hour, it really is the perfect Highland base for year round exploring or relaxation.
The Highland Club is situated within 2 minutes walk from the centre of Fort Augustus. Amenities include a number of local pubs/restaurants, local supermarket and a variety of gift shops. There is a 9 hole golf course, Tourist Information Centre and many local attractions and beautiful walks without the need to drive if you prefer.
The location allows traffic free access to The Nevis Range ski area during the winter months and year round access to the Highlands and all the local outdoor/adventure sports. The beautiful beaches of the West Coast of Scotland can be found about an hour away with easy access to Isle of Skye across the new bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh. To the East there are several beaches in the Dornoch/Black Isle area. Whisky Distilleries are in all directions, while for the children, the Hogwarts Express is a train that runs along the valley where Harry Potter was filmed. The nearby ruins of Urquhart Castle, Cawdor Castle and the world famous Eilean Donan Castle are all within an hour's drive. Not forgetting the Loch Ness Visitor's Centre and the monster itself....
