Grand stay at The Highland Club
Apartment AC21 had a very detailed kitchen and living areas. Warm welcome with compliments. Tasteful layout with modern facilities going upto an entertainment area.
Having Alexa was exciting with kids!!! Thanks for the playstation fruits whisky and Champaign . We have memories.
Most of all the location together with the apartment is a one in a life time experience.
(Booking.com, December 2018)

Perfect location. Very well designed and very clean and comfortable.
(Booking.com, December 2018)

I probably need a few A4 papers to write about the things I like about this property.
We got the penthouse and it is totally elegant setup. It has a nice balcony that over looking Loch Ness.
There is also a separate cinema room that could be access via the balcony that equipped with a huge OLED TV and PS4 (my kids spent most of their time there while we are busy with cooking and other stuffs.
The penthouse is equipped with a traditional British oven that also keep the living / dining room warm throughout the winter night.

Beautiful grounds in a stunning location – highly recommend both Fort Augustus and this accommodation. Total relaxation away from everything.

Incredible experience
I was honestly blown away by how extravagant my whole Highland Club experience was! First of all, our host Jacqui was a lovely lady who went through the finest details of explaining the history as well as the facilities & how to use them.
We took public transport to the club and so we were exhausted, but the apartment was super comfy, well catered & even had Alexa to set the mood.
The pool is spacious enough and we were never left bored or wondering what to do.
We went there for my mum’s birthday and she wasn’t disappointed! We also tried the boathouse restaurant nearby, also lovely atmosphere & fantastic food.
Overall 5 stars honestly.
(Booking.com, November 2018)

Excellent, Would Recommend
Likes? Buildings and location, well all of it
Dislikes? Fire doors in units and lack of history / photos explanation on the models in the abbey Would love to have been able to go up the bell tower.

A perfect spot to relax but also adventure seek! Would Recommend
We stayed for one week in the AC21 Penthouse.
Likes? The Highland Club was just what we were looking for in terms of having the independence of self-catering but enjoying the amenities of a hotel. Our flat was stunning, and the staff very eager to help
Dislikes? None
(The Highland Club, November 2018)

Excellent apartment located right by the Loch Ness.
Spacious and confortable, plenty of towels and confortable beds. Ideal with children with a good playground on site and we had a garden with toys (and rabbits!).
The apartment was fully stocked with high quality appliances, kitchen tools, some games. Fresh milk, cereals, teas, coffees, a nice range of high-quality foodie gifts and even a bottle of wine were also available when we arrived which was a great surprise.
(Booking.com, October 2018)

Loved it, first class place in a gorgeous location.
Host was excellent, the location of the Highland Club is UNBELIEVABLE! right on the banks of beautiful Loch Ness.
Apartment was lovely, lots of facilities, swimming pool, gym, snooker room like you have never seen, fit for a King.
(Booking.com, October 2018)

Perfect!
The property had everything! The old building was beautiful with very modern renovations. Lots of nice touches when you get there, bottle of wine, milk, fruit etc. Comfortable beds, plenty of space. Just a lovely. More expensive than some places but worth every penny.
(Booking.com, October 2018)

It was very nice to receive a small gift pack of food and wine when we arrived. The property was beautiful.
(Booking.com, October 2018)

Beautiful building in a stunning setting. Very well equipped apartment with very thoughtful touches. The little details….fudge, popcorn and shortbread. The host went to extra lengths to provide me with a swim suit.
(Booking.com, October 2018)

Cozy, clean & had everything we need
PRO: Out of all the places we stayed at in Scotland, The Highland Club was by far the best one. We had everything we needed during our stay. The welcome goodies was great – cereals, sweets, jams, water, milk. We were able to use the oil and condiments they have provided. We bought ingredients and meat at a grocery store nearby (walking distance) and cooked our own meal, mostly for dinner. The apartment we stayed at has a 2 in 1 washer / dryer. A printer was also available for us to use. Our explorer passes got wet from the rain, thank goodness for the printer, we were able to print them again. WiFi was very fast. The living room was very cozy and we had nice view of the abbey. Faux fur throws were also available for us to use when watching tv. The two bedrooms were clean and comfortable. There is ample space for the luggages. Bath robes were provided. There is abundant water and water doesn’t take time to get hot. There is a mat beside the door that is provided for wet boots / muddy shoes. Gordon is very friendly and helped us carry some of our stuffs. CON – the only downside is that the abbey doesn’t have a lift / elevator. We had a hard time carrying our luggage. But if you don’t mind the stairs then it shouldn’t be a problem.
(Trustpilot, October 2018)

Great Stay
The apartments are tremendous and fully equipped with everything that you need. The building is stunning as are the grounds and the wee swimming pool is great for the kids. Furthermore Julie could not have been more helpful on check in. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in many places when we visited Scotland this is by far the best place we stayed it was truly a wonderful experience. Also the restaurant that is Within walking distance was super highly recommend a great place to stay.
(Trustpilot, September 2018)

This place is amazing, it’s not cheap but worth every penny. The building and gardens are beautiful, the position of the property couldn’t be better for the area and the scenery was outstanding. The apartments are stunning, the facilities are excellent and the staff were extremely polite, professional and friendly. Loved all the little touches like the box of fudge, bottle of wine, tea, coffee etc and hot chocolate (I don’t like tea or coffee), a bottle of milk and bottle of water in the fridge and they even provided breakfast cereal. We had an issue with our bed but responded within 15 minutes of me bringing this to their attention. The issue was resolved immediately and we even received another bottle of wine as an apology. Can’t recommend this place highly enough, well done Gordon and his staff.

Exquisite accommodation
Jackie was on hand swiftly with keys, then gave a personal tour of Abbey complex and accommodation itself.  All rooms and equipment  are impeccably kept.  Kitchen utensils for every whim. Would definitely love to stay again and so conveniently located to central Fort Augustus and Loch.
The Boathouse Restaurant next door is also superb and booking advisable.
(Booking.com, September 2018)

We enjoyed our stay at the Highland Club–beautiful location and so convenient!
We enjoyed our stay at the Highland Club very much. The apartment was sparkling clean and the welcome package with wine, milk, cereals and snacks was much appreciated. We had an apartment with a terrace with a view out to Loch Ness. The apartment was nicely decorated and the kitchen well equipped. The washer/dryer was one unit and right in the kitchen. We did have a scheduling problem (on our end) with checking in, since we had afternoon tickets to the Jacobite Express. It would be best to book your train tickets for the morning or for an afternoon after you have checked in at the Highland Club. We were not able to take advantage of the pool or other activities since we were on the go all the time. The little town of Fort Augustus was so cute and just a few steps away. The apartment has many fire doors inside separating the rooms, this must have been a requirement for the building code in renovating the Abbey. It takes a little getting used to, but it was fine after a day or two. The unit was so spacious and having 2 bathrooms was a bonus for a family of 4 adults.
(Trustpilot, September 2018)

A wonderful place to stay for a completely Scottish experience!
We always carefully research places to stay when we travel and like to book outside the realm of the usual hotel. That’s why The Highland Club apartment was perfect for us. We received an hour-long tour of the facilities before being shown to our apartment, which was much larger than anticipated and thoughtfully equipped to a very high standard. There was even a bottle of wine and gourmet goodies for us to enjoy. We shopped for groceries at Fort William, on our way up from Glasgow. The Morrison’s there carries a full range of perishable and non-perishable items – certainly more than the small multi-purpose store in Fort Augustus. That said, we could have also managed very well shopping locally. We spent our four days and nights seeing the Highlands, riding the Jacobite Express, visiting the Isle of Skye and Inverness and places in between. The weather could have been a little less “Scottish’ but we are west coast Canadian and used to liquid sunshine. The only criticisms we would make are about the many, many, many stairs we had to climb to get to our flat, AC25 I believe, (a little warning may have helped) and the bed, which was not terribly comfortable and on the small side. There is certainly enough room for a king size bed. Everything else was to a very high standard and we would certainly recommend The Highland Club to our friends. In fact, we already have!
(Trustpilot, September 2018)

WOW Magic place
We came to this amazing place in the evening. We met like kings at the gate and then they showed us this amazing building and surroundings. It was absolutely magically beautiful at the Loch Ness and then went up to the apartment which was absolutely wonderful. Wow what a place!
(Trustpilot, August 2018)

Great location to do The Highlands from (AC17)
This place has a multitude of flats. Ours was AC17. A very modern flat in a very old building. Outstanding view from our bedroom. The grounds were full of things to see and do. Steps from Loch Ness, and the village area of Fort Augustus. Everything in the flat was of top quality and the goodies in the flat were very tasty. There was fruit, milk, candy, even cereal! We would stay here again, but would perhaps try a flat on the ground or 1st floors. Be warned – this flat is on the 4th floor – 54 steps to get to it, and there is NO LIFT!. Great for a family or younger people, but if you are older and out of shape, you might struggle.
(Tripadvisor, August 2018)

A Paradise, Would Recommend
Some days in a paradiac place We have spent 5 days in this fantastic location! The whole family enjoyed it. We should come back sooner or later! We were there for our summer holidays through UK.
Likes? We have spent 5 days in this fantastic location! The whole family enjoyed it. We should come back sooner or later!
Dislikes? The twin beds in the second bed room were really narrow.
(The Highland Club, August 2018)

Absolute Outstanding Experience! After visiting many countries over many years with our children this was at the absolute top range of what we have experienced. The combination of a quite historic environment together with very luxurious space in the apartment and the absolute completeness of the kitchen equipment which was very clean provided for a very relaxed and memorable stay in Fort Augustus.

5 days in a Paradise
We have spent 5 days/4 nights in this fantastic place.
When we arrived our children thought to be in a location to visit…not in our “residence”! The welcome was perfect, the apartment superb: judge, clean, equipped with all the possible furniture…a spectacular view…what else? The common areas amazing too: the pool, the giant chessboard, the billiard room, the outside park with all the possible facilities. All the above just in front of the lake and 5 minutes walking from the village and the shops. It is just too far away form Italy, but we will come back! Thanks.
(Trustpilot, August 2018)

Staying there is indeed a memorable experience! Well worth taking out time from busy schedule(s) to bond with family and or friends over some sporting activities. Cheers 🥂
(Facebook, August 2018)

Nos encantó, son apartamentos perfectos para una familia en media-larga estancia. El mobiliario es nuevo, cómodo y funcional, están perfectamente equipados, la ubicación excelente, hay tranquilidad porque está rodeado de jardines delante del lago Ness, pero se va andando al pueblo. Las instalaciones que lo completan son otro 10: la sala de juegos, la piscina con sauna, el ping-pong, el ajedrez gigante… Nuestra anfitriona nos enseñó todo rápidamente pero muy bien explicado. La única pega para personas mayores: no tiene ascensor para los apartamentos superiores. Sin duda, volveré a alojarme aquí con mi familia.
(Trustpilot, July 2018)

Fantastic 2 Night Stay in Highland Club Fort Augustus, Would Recommend
We arrived and were promptly met by Gordon who was very friendly and gave us an informative guided tour. We were then shown around our stunning apartment and encouraged to contact staff should we have any queries or questions. We spent the next couple of days enjoying our apartment, amenities and grounds including enjoying meal at the boathouse. We also spent time in Fort Augustus watching boats on the canal, going on boat trip on Loch Ness, eating out and a bit of shopping. Enjoyed our stay!!
Likes? Our amazing apartment in Abbey Church and starter pack lovely touch. The interior and grounds of Highland Club breath taking. The location to where there is things to see and do in Fort Augustus.
Dislikes? We have absolutely nothing negative to say about our stay.
(The Highland Club, July 2018)

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Highland Club. All four of us loved our room and loved the beautiful abbey.

We stayed for 4 nights and could not have been happier with the quality and cleanliness of our apartment. The apartment was warm and inviting which made you feel at home. The location of the Highland Club is terrific. The lovely village of Fort Augustus is a brief walk away.

Short break, first visit to the Highlands and we were pleasantly surprised. Highland Club Hotel was lovely and within easy reach of town. Locals were very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely return here in the near future.
Likes? Everything from how easy it was to find the hotel to how friendly everyone was. We were a party of 4 adults, two of whom were seniors citizens.
Dislikes? Not got anything negative to say.
(The Highland Club, July 2018)

Plan a long stay! The building, facilities, and apartment are amazing if you like living in an abbey that feels like a castle! We had a private courtyard to grill and enjoy the setting. Right on the shores of Loch Ness, there was always plenty to do. Everything was needed to entertain a family even if the weather was bad. Baking supplies and board games were all ready to go. A delicious welcome basket was provided for the family.
(Booking.com, July 2018)

Exceptional! Absolutely beautiful old Abbey and right on Loch Ness! The apartment is just lovely. It is spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. There was a welcome bag full of goodies awaiting us. There was also wine, milk, water, coffee and teas. We really could not have rented any better place to stay, it was absolutely perfect! We rented a car and were able to take very nice day trips. Highly recommend! We wished we had booked for a longer stay.
(Airbnb, July 2018)

Abbey Church 11 – They thought of everything! Staff were amazing! They thought of absolutely everything that made us feel comfortable in the apartment, right down to snacks and milk and wine! The lake was beautiful and we enjoyed several quiet evenings enjoying the lapping of the lake and watching the ducks and bunnies. The Boathouse Restaurant was wonderful as well. It was nice to have a water view and not have to drive anywhere for dinner. We truly had a perfect stay, wish it could have been longer!
(Booking.com, July 2018)

We came here with our Harry Potter obsessed children and it did not disappoint. Just 40 mins away from the Jacobite (Harry Potter) train, this place felt like a real-life “Hogwarts” right on the edge of Loch Ness. Good facilities and high quality accommodation. Only downside was that a lot of guests ignored the pool sign in sheet, so it got a bit crowded at times; might need a better system. Otherwise everything was perfect and we hope to return soon.
(Trustpilot, June 2018)

One of the best hotels in Scotland, high standard, extra friendly staff. Would Recommend

A wonderful stay in an exceptional facility located in a beautiful location, located on the Loch Ness alongside the Caldeonian Canal. The setting in an old Benedictine Monastery on a large tract of parkland is a perfect setting for a calm and peaceful stay. Modern, fully equipped and spacious apartments provide all the amenities that one needs for a family or couples visit. We would stay there again.

“A great location and space to base yourself in the Highlands. Right on Loch Ness with shops and restaurants within walking distance. Wonderful for the kids with it’s swimming pools, playground, tennis, etc. The flat was very clean, has an amazing kitchen stocked with everything you’d need to cook with and our welcome from the hosts was super generous.” “Thank you so much for all the wonderful food and wine that you left for us. It truly helps being in the Highlands to have such a warm and friendly welcome, especially when the shops are closed upon arrival. 😉
(Airbnb, June 2018)

The Highland Club is definitely one of Scotland’s best kept secrets. This year was our fourth visit in 5 years (we decided not to go when the pool was closed last year) and we will be booking next year’s trip in a few weeks time. The accommodation is excellent, finished to a high specification. Fantastic facilities, the new pool area and refurbished gym are brilliant. I love the fact that there is so much history in the building too. Ideal for couples or families alike. Where else would you get fabulous scenery, tennis court, gym, pool, sauna, steam room, table tennis, play area, snooker table etc
(Facebook, June 2018)

Stunning and unique
As soon as you drive through the gates of the highland club you realise that you’re somewhere very special. The views of Loch Ness are breathtaking and the Abbey itself is architecturally stunning. We stayed in a modern, spacious and beautifully furnished apartment stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The family loved the facilities on site especially the games room and swimming pool. I genuinely cannot think of a better, more unique and wonderful place to stay in Scotland and we’re all looking forward to going back next year!

Wonderful memories made at The Highland Club
The Highland Club is a wonderful destination. It’s location is fantastic for a stay at Loch Ness and as a base to explore this vast and beautiful part of Scotland. The local town just a few minutes walk away has a good mix of shops, eateries and pubs to explore and enjoy. The Boathouse restaurant is particularly lovely with great service and food. There is a Loch Ness Cruise company port just nearby which has just launched a brand new ship. The cruise was both a very informative history lesson of the Loch and a relaxing way to take in its beauty.
The property offers wonderful views of Loch Ness from its grounds and rooms, fabulous architecture to enjoy, a warm and hospitable environment thanks to its attentive staff, plenty of activities including a luxurious swimming pool with sauna and steam room, an adventure playground, tennis courts and beautifully appointed apartments to enjoy after a days adventure.
As a family of four with two young children, we found all the rooms very clean, spacious, safe, modern and welcoming with all the luxuries and amenities of home and more. The Highland Club has created a space and destination which is a truly luxurious escape where guests needs and comforts are the priority. Please see attached pictures of the destination we loved so much. I would highly recommend staying here, go on treat yourself.

Stunning location, excellent accommodation and amenities.
An amazing holiday with the family (all ages!). The accommodation is of very high quality, and the setting has to be seen to be believed. We had a brilliant time – everything you could need – restaurants and pubs in 5 mins walk, stunning grounds and things to do for all the family (football, tennis, croquet, garden chess, swimming pool, lounge area) and walks and bike rides from the door, plus lovely little stores, and a well-stocked grocery store.
We all thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t recommend it highly enough.

The Highland Club definitely has the wow factor! A beautiful building steeped in history, in an absolutely stunning location. We stayed in the Linse & were super impressed with how beautifully furnished & spacious this apartment was. My family of four arrived to a spotlessly clean apartment that offered amazing views over Loch Ness from both of the bedrooms & the living room. The kitchen/diner was beautiful & had everything we could possibly need or want. In addition we were welcomed with a bag full of goodies which included a choice of cereals, chocolates, biscuits, crackers & wine. The staff really went that extra mile to make our stay very special.
The on site swimming pool was fabulous & my young daughters particularly enjoyed the adventure playground & giant chess board. The entire grounds were beautifully kept & we really enjoyed dinner at the Boathouse Restaurant which also offered superb views over the Loch.
We had an amazing family holiday & can’t thank the staff enough for catering to our every need. We can’t wait to visit again.

Pool nice place for a bit of relaxation after the activities. Beautiful kitchen equipped with all you need. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Highlands.

Enjoyed a wonderful week in this imposing building in an ideal setting. Beautifully appointed apartment to return to after a day out exploring the area. Quiet and peaceful with lots of cycle paths and walks and other outdoor activities in the vicinity. If you are visiting the highlands this is the place to stay.

Stayed here as a family of four over Easter 2018 and it was just lovely. A great location. A warm welcome and show around the Abbey, a fab welcome pack with lots of goodies. The apartment (No 15) had absolutely everything we needed and more. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and spacious.

“We booked an entire flat during Easter 2018, four of us. Centrally located near the canal, this is a fantastic property for staying in when hiking around Fort Augustus. Full of amenities like a heated pool and loads of sports activities we were worried we might not leave the place and go on our hikes! Easy access to all major trails and hikes in the area. Great view of the loch and the Glen in all its glory in the back yard, topped with a well placed and a seperate privately owned Boatside restaurant which serves great food and beer. The flat itself was great, 2 bedroom, on onsuite bath, very clean and well maintained. The owners had left thoughtful items like a bag of food and drinks for visitors which was great to see. Julie was wonderful and even was accommodating to our early check in plan and always reachable. The only ‘problem’ that you might encounter is since the property is very old there are no elevators to the top floors, so you might want to check that first, but it wasn’t a problem for us. Would love to visit again soon!”.

We stayed at the Highland Club in the Fairlie for two nights during our trip through Scotland.
There is no describing how unique and beautiful this place is.
We traveled with two teens and they were thrilled with the pool, the buildings and the amenities.
This stay was a highlight of our trip. The one day we walked into St. Augustus was sunny and beautiful.
Not much open early in the spring, but also it wasn’t busy. We took a boat tour of Loch Ness, and had a quiet restful few days.
We had good communications with the property, the apartment was well equipped for our family and extremely clean and well appointed.
I would highly recommend this for travelers of any age.

We had a wonderful three night stay in top quality apartment. Everything about our stay was exceptional and definitely the best self catering place that we have stayed. Many extra touches that we did not expect. Can’t wait to go again. Fort Augustus is beautiful with lots of local walks. We had lovely meals in the village. Games of every sort provided at the club including snooker table tennis outdoor games and of course the lovely pool complex which we had to ourselves. Amazing.

Great place to stay, excellent facilities, lovely village and many things to do in the area. Would Recommend
We stayed 4 nights, it was a short family break. The apartment was lovely, with everything you could need, clean and tidy. We enjoyed the swimming pool. We didn’t use the other facilities (like gym), but more for lack of time/interest. The village is lovely and we have spent 4 days exploring the area (nevis range, Fort George, Loch Ness, Inverness…)
Likes? We enjoyed everything. The surrounding area is beautiful and the highland club is a really enjoyable place to stay. The staff was really friendly and helpful.
Dislikes? No, everything was good.

Fantastic Place, Would Recommend
From the moment I saw it online it looked amazing and I couldn’t believe it was in our price range, on arrival we were treated fantastically and shown around what was available before going to our apartment which I must say was far better than the photos showed, you could stay here a month and feel right at home, excellent location on the banks of Loch Ness
Likes? Everything, from the location, the welcome pack waiting for us, the staff, we didn’t need for anything
Dislikes? None

Exceptional, Would Recommend
Three night self catering stay in Abbey apartment. Family in another apartment.
Likes? Everything. Top quality apartment with many extra touches. We could not have wished for more. Warm welcome from Julie. Best self catering stay we have had ever,
Dislikes? Leaving.

Second visit here – just fantastic. Great location. We will most definitely be back!

The apartment we booked was very well equipped for a self catering break. Surprised at the quality of the “welcome pack” including cereal, fruit, wine and a few other things. Also the coffee and tea supplies were of excellent quality, and there was cooking oil etc for use.
