We had a truly relaxing time at the Highland Club over the Christmas and New Year holiday. Beautiful location, excellent apartment, fantastic facilities, including a wonderful swimming pool.

Absolutely stunning. Very quiet and peaceful with stunning views. Our break was made even better due to winning a five night break but we will definitely go again. Would not normally holiday at that time of year but the views around the area with lots of snow made the whole break magical.

A special place, like no other.
We have been visiting the Former Abbey for around four years, we have seen many new apartments come online and we’ve now stayed in quite a few now. The Highland Club has a range of accommodation from charming little apartments for 2 people right up to accommodation which can take eight.
We as a family of 4 like to use Abbey Church 9, it is on the ground level and has easy access for offloading the car. It is also very close to the pool facilities, and as we have kids it also has a private garden with some outdoor toys and a bar-b-q. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king sized bed with a newly refurbished shower-room en-suite. Like most of the living areas in the Highland clubs rental its has an open kitchen, dining room and lounge area. The apartments are all very well kitted out. their are tennis courts, a football pitch, fishing rights, croquet and several other outdoor activities. the pool area is due open up again after being fully refurbished due to fie damage. The pool is amazing, you can look out the gothic arched windows to a view of the heather clad hills and mountains in the distance while you let all your stresses of everyday life just melt away. There is also a sauna and steam room and gymnasium too.
The rooms are very well appointed, modern but with a classic Scottish feel because of the carefully selected décor and furnishings.
You cant help but feel you are somewhere very special when staying at the Highland Club. Because of its history it filled with unique stonework and period features. The old cloisters are fantastic to wander around and from the outside it is simply breath taking, it is sometimes nick named Hogworts because of the setting. The views around the abbey are fantastic, there are plenty of walks in and around Fort Augustus, and the Caledonian canal locks are well worth a visit.
We love the Highland Club so much we decided to get married there in May. The venue had everything we could possible ask for and more . We booked around 15 apartments for friends and family. Each and everyone of our guests were taken aback by the sheer beauty of the location and the high standard of their accommodation. I know that many of them plan to return again in the future. The grounds are extensive and with them being on the southern banks of the world famous Loch Ness you have one of the best views in Bonnie Scotland right on your doorstep..
There is an onsite restaurant called the Boathouse, which has a spectacular view up the Loch. You can eat in or on a nice day have your food looking right up the length of the loch from their outside seating area. well worth a visit and the Nessie hotpot pie is worth a taste too.
You will not regret visiting the Highland Club, and I am sure if like us you will return time after time.

Beautiful former abbey. It’s a great location with beautiful views.

Great apartments in an enchanting location
Comfortable, modern, well-furnished apartments in a beautiful location, unlike anywhere else I have stayed in the UK. Being at the foot of Loch Ness, nestled amongst highland peaks made an ideal holiday for hiking, cycling, taking photographs and exploring the local villages. The apartments themselves were equipped with everything my friends and I needed to relax, cook meals together and get a comfortable sleep. When the weather was bad, we cut our hike short and spent an afternoon in the spa and pool area – a gorgeous place to put our feet up and unwind in. I would recommend the Highland Club to friends and families – there’s so much to explore in the surrounding Scottish countryside and plenty of comfort, games and entertainment at the apartments.

Can’t wait until our next visit to The Highland Club
This is our third visit to the Highland Club and we will come again! The setting is beautiful and the apartments exceptionally comfortable with the best fitted out kitchen – a home away from home. Fantastic outings by bike and on foot in the beautiful Scottish countryside. Every day was relaxing and enchanting.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay in stunning surroundings – apartment lovely and The Highland Club is just beautiful – the interior and grounds are delightful and well maintained and the location is great with pubs, restaurants, shops and outdoor activities all on your doorstep. The whole family had a great time. We will be back!

This place is beautiful. It was late September so our outdoor time was limited. Even with that we enjoyed the fresh air and lovely views of Lock Ness and the surrounding area. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful Highland resort oozing Scottish charm.
Our family enjoyed a lovely short break at the Highland Club over Easter. The Highland Club has been tastefully converted, cleverly retaining the tranquillity of its monastic origins. We had the opportunity to look round several apartments and found them both stylish and welcoming. They are thoroughly modern and fully-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable break, each with its own individual look.
Being on the banks of Loch Ness, the Highland Club enjoys a stunning location, with magnificent views across the loch. While there is plenty to keep the whole family occupied without leaving the club, venture further afield and there are enough walks, castles, and distilleries to keep everybody busy. Overall a lovely resort, well worth visiting.

We stayed here last. October it was fantastic beautiful view. Every day the lock looked different with the Autumn sun rises my daughter Kelly got engaged to Gary on the jetty at the lock would love to go back.

Lochside Paradise
This place is a true Highland paradise. Located on the shores of southern tip of Loch Ness, it is a magical place in itself, as well as the perfect base for exploring the Highlands. We stayed in an apartment on the top floor of the Monastery building with spectacular views all the way down the Loch. We will definitely be back.
(TripAdvisor, September 2017)

I was a bit dubious about staying in a converted monastery but glad we did. Converted to a very high standard with space to spread out and enjoy the well appointed apartment which had everything you need and more. Two bathrooms were an added bonus. Perfect location very convenient for exploring the highlands. Quiet site with stunning views across Loch Ness. Local boathouse restaurant was very nice too. Would I recommend yes and would I book again yes too.

Stunning a magical place
We stayed at the Highland Club recently for the fourth time since it opened for business. This place never ceases to captivate. From the moment you arrive and walk through the doors the Highland Club casts its spell on its guests. From the Hogwarts cloisters to the Club Lounge
The Highland Club is anything it’s guest wants it to be, retreat, base for exploring or cozy family holiday. The apartments are finished to the highest of standards and the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the Abbey and surrounding area. The excellent Boathouse resturant is a stonethrow away on the banks of Loch Ness, or if self catering is your thing the apartments are fully equiped.
I can’t recommend The Highland Club enough to anyone and can’t wait to go back again already!
(TripAdvisor, September 2017)

Stunning surroundings, fabulous accommodation.
This place is stunning! – right on the edge of Loch Ness and the Highland Club building is beautiful – an amazing restoration with jaw dropping architecture and great facilities in the building and grounds and literally on your doorstep with hikes, cycling and places to eat and shop all in easy walking distance. All the family love it and we come back time after time. The apartments are really well equipped and all communication with staff at booking and when there really pleasant and easy. If I could buy one the apartments (I hear that some are for sale) I would !!! – perhaps a dream for future years.
(TripAdvisor, September 2017)

We’ll be back! – Stunning setting
This was our 4th visit to the Highland Club – we love it here.
The apartments are individually and beautifully furnished, immaculately clean with lovely views of either the Loch or the mountains.
The kitchen fully equipped so I was able to cook just as if I was at home, including making our morning smoothie!
We have cycled, walked and toured from The Highland Club which is in a perfect position to explore the beautiful Scottish countryside.
I would definitely recommend it and hope to return soon.

Enchanting resort
Stayed with the kids and grandparents. Something for all generations.
Lovely clean apartments with many good facilities to keep you entertained.
Absolutely stunning buildings that have been restored and refurbished with care. The gothic architecture gives the place that Hogwarts feel.
Good location with beautiful grounds but also a great base to go and see other parts of the country. So many highlights to our trip that it would take too long listing them all.
If you can though, do attend the weekly Celidh at the village hall as it’s so much fun. The locals provide a warm and welcoming environment.
Honestly can’t wait to go again!

Absolutely magical
The Highland Club is definitely one of those unique places which combines history with style, luxury and yet homeliness. From the driveway up until the forks in the apartments, everything is thought through to the absolute detail. I personally loved watching the rabbits on the Monk’s Lawn, and playing croquet there as you had the towering Abbey in the background and Loch Ness stretching out in front of you. There is definitely some form of magic at The Highland Club, one that allows you to easily dream of the Loch Ness Monster, but also one that transports you back to the history of the building. You can almost hear the monk’s steps and prayers through the cloisters, and see the redcoat patrols circling the Fort. To combine the history of such an outstanding location with their gorgeous apartments is something to be admired.
The Boathouse is also another gem of The Highland Club, with delicious food mere steps from the accommodation, which I loved. But I think my favourite thing is how The Highland Club blends itself into Fort Augustus. It is certainly a statement building, but the buildings and the grounds fit into the Scottish town without overwhelming it. It allows you to experience the Highlands and Scottish life with that touch of luxury.
I can’t wait to visit again, and hopefully the swimming pool will be complete which will just be the cherry on top of the cake as I tried feeling the water of Loch Ness and that’s just far too cold for me, despite the allure of swimming with Nessie!

Fantastic experience
We had a wonderful time staying here, a really excellent place which we are recommending to everyone. A must go.
(TripAdvisor, September 2017)

The Highland Club is in one of the most dreamy locations. The scenery, history, air, views, walks make this is a perfect to stay. We loved the boathouse, sitting there being right on the loch.The Abbey its self is a place to visit in its own right and has been beautifully restored. Will definitely visit again.
(TripAdvisor, September 2017)

A picture postcard perfect place with great facilities and comfortable plush accommodation. Great walks and nearby restaurants in Fort Augustus.
(TripAdvisor, September 2017)

Great for kids
Apartment was very clean and had all the amenities you require. You can also get a supermarket home delivery which is really helpful.
Location is stunnng but real strength is the long list of ‘to do’ sports for kids i.e. tennis, cricket, football, badminton, giant chess, table tennis, kids pool table, table football, archery (additional cost), boules, pétanque.
We’ll definitely go back.
(TripAdvisor, September 2017)

Beautiful place to stay, customer service was excellent, gave us plenty of information on things to do and places to see. Hopefully the pool has reopened the next time we head up Well worth a couple of night stay.

Absolutely beautiful and ideal for families with young children… they can play and run outside all they want. There is a small playground available, tennis court, and many other games. Village and restaurants are a few minutes walk.

We stayed at the Highland Club for the second time, this time in one of the cottages. It was luxurious and spacious, just as we expected and even better. The Highland Club itself is the best holiday accomodation we know in Scotland. Perfect for hiking, relaxing, simply enjoying the time. The only downside this year was the pool complex which had been destroyed by a fire and so we were not able to use it. Will be fixed soon, so no problem in the future.
(Trustpilot, August 2017)

This apartment is really special, because it used to be near the ceiling of the old Abbey church and involves the upper parts of the church windows, which are round and parts of the ceiling are also round. It even seems bigger and nicer than on the photos. It is decorated very beautifully and very well equipped.
The park is wonderful and leads directly to the lake.

We’re just back from two fabulous and relaxing weeks at the Highland Club. Had a wonderful time and we surely will come back.

A fantastic place to stay. Clean, well kept and loved the attention to detail such as the provision of sports equipment in the apartment. Expensive but worth it for a treat.

Unsere Wohnung in der Abbey Church war wunderbar. Wir waren zu dritt und hatten reichlich Platz im riesigen Appartment. Wir wurden bei unserer Ankunft nett empfangen und es fehlte in der Wohnung an nichts – wirklich jede Kleinigkeit war vorhanden (Küchengeräte, …). Sogar Tennisschläger waren in der Wohnung um den im Gelände befindlichen Tennisplatz zu nutzen. Ein abendliches Highlight für unseren Sohn! Wir können diese Location, aber vorallem unser Appartment Abbbey Church 11 nur weiter empfehlen!!! Volle Punktzahl!!!! Familie Peter.

The abbey is an enchanting, rare location, fort augustus is tidy village with esential services. my famil (my wife, our son 11yo and me) spent 1 week there, a lot of nice sights are in a 1-hour drive range, and also closer a plenty of trekking paths. Apartment is large, modern, confortable, with top equipment and facilities. Maybe the first time my family and I felt really at home away from home
just do not expect classic resort facilies like animation for children and all you can eat restaurant, and it was just fine for us.
(Trustpilot, August 2017)

Whether you decide to stay within the Club or visit the area I have appreciated to overnight in the Abbey appartement. Staff welcomed us and took time to present the Club and all the facilities with great details on the historical value of the Abbey and the Fort. For sure the place is one of the many reasons for which we will have a second venue to the Highlands.

Best Holiday accomodation in Scotland.
(Facebook, July 2017)

We recently enjoyed two weeks of travel throughout the U.K. We had booked a three night stay at The Highland Club about halfway through our trip, but immediately regretted that we were staying for such a short while! The grounds were impeccable and the apartment was so beautiful that we did not want to leave. Upon reflection, this was our favorite part of the entire holiday–and that is certainly saying something! We will definitely return for future holidays and will gladly recommend this property to everyone visiting the area.
(Trustpilot, June 2017)

A beautiful apartment and very well appointed. It is decorated to a very high standard with beautiful fixtures and fittings. The location is excellent but perhaps not suitable for elderly visitors due to the number of stairs leading up to it. With beautiful views over the loch, it was useful to have a table and chairs in the lounge in addition to the huge eight seater in the kitchen/dining area. The internal window overlooking the atrium is a lovely touch. The linen etc was comfortable and spotlessly clean ….The welcome pack we received was a lovely touch and most certainly the best one we have ever received. The Hogmanay complimentary celebration was fantastic with a great selection of nibbles provided. All in all, this is a stunning property and fantastic development and I would like to visit it again when the leisure facilities are back in use.

Really enjoyed our stay with Highland Club Direct! We thought the property was beautifully outfitted – love the stags everywhere – and was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, glasses etc. Very important as we were cooking Christmas dinner there! Very much enjoyed our stay and couldn’t recommend it enough! Absolutely perfect stay. Thought the communal areas were lots of fun, and the activities gave the place a real sense of community (especially loved the whisky tasting!)

Fantastic location, we had a great time even if the weather was against us all along. Next time in summer!
