Description

The Perfect Honeymoon or Romantic Break Destination within Grade A listed Monastery with views of Loch Ness

The Boys' Dormitory is a spacious, four-star, one bedroom apartment positioned on the vaulted top floor of the old monastery, with huge arched stone mullioned windows. The property has views in three directions with every window offering sensational views of the landscape. The monastery is undoubtedly the finest building at the Abbey and in the most prominent position, directly overlooking Loch Ness, the cloisters and gardens. The bright apartment is decorated in the most luxurious style, combining quality antique and modern furnishings, featuring Victorian pictures, floorboards and vintage lighting sourced from a local chapel and with wonderful attention to detail throughout. The most idyllic place, a far cry from when up to 40 junior boys shared what was one of the original boarding school dormitories, located between the Abbot's chapel and a lovely bell tower.
