An hour from the centre of Inverness, the Highland Capital. The Highlands of Scotland have much to offer, with some of the most beautiful scenery in the United Kingdom. This apartment is part of the Highland Club development in an old Benedictine Monastery on the shores of Loch Ness.

Fort William is also the starting point for your return trip to Mallaig on the "Harry Potter Train".
