For a truly unique and fabulous wedding The Highland Club is an amazing location. Steeped in hundreds of years of history and situated on the banks of Loch Ness ensures a truly memorable celebration for you and your guests. Whether you want an intimate wedding by the side of the loch, a grander affair in the Abbey Church Atrium, or a relaxed tipi in which to celebrate, it would be our privilege to host you and to be a part of your special day. Photographs of your wedding day with both Loch Ness as a backdrop on the one hand and St Benedict’s Abbey on the other are sure to evoke happy memories for many years to come. All that’s left now is to make your dreams a reality…


The Church AtriumThe Church Atrium

The Abbey Church Atrium (formerly the central chapel of the enormous Abbey Church) was originally designed by Pugin the Younger. The central chapel sits below the timber hammer head beams and has been restored into what is now referred to as The Church Atrium. Equipped with under floor heating it is an ideal location for weddings and other events. The Atrium is not available for hire during the months of July or August and can seat up to 80 guests for a wedding.




The Club Loungepic_the-highland-club-lounge_1

The Club Lounge has been beautifully restored with timber panelling and was formerly the monks Refectory. At one end you will find a pulpit jutting out from the wainscot where a chapter from the Holy Scriptures would be read during the monks meal, and at the other end three long Gothic stained glass windows. This is the perfect place to hold an intimate wedding seating a maximum of 20 people, or to have a champagne drinks reception before moving on to your marquee or restaurant for lunch or dinner. Minimum hire for exclusive use is for a period of 4 hours.
