The Day Of Your Life On The Shores Of Loch Ness

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 in Fort Augustus.

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 Church Atrium of St Benedict’s Abbey, or a relaxed teepee 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 Fort Augustus Abbey on the other are sure to evoke happy memories for many years to come.

If you'd like more information about holding your wedding at The Highland Club we will put you in contact with the wedding planner who will coordinate and organise all that you may require from the registrar, flowers and cake to the room, caterer and photographer. Whether you'd like a piper leading you to a champagne reception or a hog roast in a marquee, she will offer advice on local restaurants or caterers and will tailor your wedding to your personal preferences.

The Highland Club is fully licensed to host civil, religious and humanist ceremonies.
Ceremonies can be held in either the Club Lounge or the Atrium.

Special rates are available for each apartment with the wedding party that is booked directly through us so please do contact us for your unique wedding code to share with your guests. Then book any apartment directly through our website with this unique code and receive a warm Scottish Welcome Hamper including champagne when you arrive!

All that’s left now is to make your dreams a reality…

The 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. It can seat up to 80 guests for a wedding.


The Atrium is not available for hire during the months of July or August.

The Club Lounge

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.

Available for hire all year round.

The Cloister Gardens

The Cloister Gardens is surrounded on all four sides by the cloisters and houses a giant chess set.

This garden is available for use when you book a wedding in the Club Lounge or Atrium.
