Fort Augustus

The magnificent wildness; nature untamed. And the ever-changing light constantly repainting the landscape, from austere to picture postcard.

Loch Ness with its mysteries and legend. Quaint tales of Nessie. The sightings and that lingering doubt...what if?

All this and so much more. Yet, until now, it has been more than just remote. For most of us, it has been inaccessible apart from fleeting holiday visits.

But now there is a way to have all this literally on your doorstep. This could be your special retreat for as long as you like!?

YOUR HOME IN THE HIGHLANDS...The SCRIPTORIUM Retreat at TheHighlandClub, Fort Augustus Abbey

A wealth of country pursuits are on hand and, in season, a choice of field sports including rough (walked-up) game shooting, clay pigeon shooting, river or loch fishing and stalking, all under the expert guidance of local ghillies and stalkers might be organized for you.

Many of Scotland's famous golf courses are easily accessible including the links courses at Nairn and Royal Dornoch.

Cyclists and walkers can enjoy breathtaking views along the Great Glen Way and Cycle Route through Glen Mor and along the northwest shores of Loch Lochy and Loch Ness, following the course of the Caledonian Canal.

More leisurely pursuits could include a visit to one of the many historic castles or gardens in the vicinity, one of the most famous woollen mills or a distillery or two - there is always something to do or somewhere new to explore.
