Pugin’s sandstone walls are set off by a Brazilian green slate floor and large ornate windows affording stunning views across the Great Glen. The complex is serviced by a small changing room, shower and storage lockers. The gym is located on the floor below with weights, running, rowing and cycling equipment. Outside there's tennis courts, badmington, a barbaque fronting Loch Ness, a Giant Chess board, adventure playground, 5-a-side football, as well as may other outdoor activities located around Loch Ness. So much to do!

The apartment is fully equipped, including Wi-Fi, baby cot and high chair. This is an excellent choice for any group or family looking for something a bit different to the norm with all the creature comforts and more. The Old Armoury offers high quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings good enough to please even the most discerning visitor.

This modern two bedroom, ground floor apartment is located in the Brothers Wing and is one of the most historically important sections of The Highland Club - built within the original bastion walls, this would have housed the armoury used in defence of the fort dating back to 1716. Just ten meters from the adjoining free parking area, and immediately on the shores of Loch Ness, it is one of the most convenient and accessible properties within The Highland Club.

The property is well equipped based on up to 6 guests, (plus a baby). While benefiting from all the facilities, The Highland Club has lots more than most Scottish Highland holiday lets have to offer and is one of a few wheelchair friendly properties at the Abbey.

Accessed via The Brothers’ Wing courtyard, and with all modern comforts and conveniences, this property is just steps away from the Club Lounge, the Monastery Lawn, Loch Ness, the Boathouse Restaurant and, as already mentioned, a variety of leisure facilities offered within this fabulous development, so it is the ideal place to enjoy everything on your doorstep, plus more when adventuring out into the Highlands themselves. The best of both worlds!

Short breaks for stays of 3, 4, 5 & 6 nights - Please note that the booking rates shown on this website is unable to calculate an actual quotation for short stays at this apartment. Therefore, it would be necessary to email the owner for confirmation of the quotation. Note - A one off £25 surcharge applies per stay for the usage of extra bed line

Location description from owner

The Loch Ness region

The world famous Loch Ness monster is waiting to greet any visitor to this un-forgettable holiday retreat. The Highlands of Scotland is a beautiful location to visit and explore all year round with lots of breath-taking and unforgettable views and places to surprise any visitor.

Fort Augustus

The historic town of Fort Augustus is not just home to the shores of Loch Ness, but the Caledonian Canal which starts from the costal city of Inverness to the famous town of Fort William. Many boats, large and small converge on Fort Augustus with its wide inland waterways lock's allowing passage through the town. There are many special places to visit around the town, with Ben Nevis just 30 miles away. The apartment itself is steeping in history as it is located within the remaining building of a dismantled fort, built in 1729 and originally erected for the suppression of Highland Jacobites. In 1880 St. Benedict's Abbey was completed on the same site as the old Fort and became the home to the Benedictine monks until its closure in 1993.
