The Highland Club Information

Description

The Highland Club is a collection of 4 and 5 star self catered apartments (serviced daily) set in 20 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds on the south shore of Loch Ness, also cradled by the Caledonian Canal and the River Tarff. It occupies Grade A listed gothic buildings, originally the 1729 English fortification which became St Benedict’s Abbey. Located in the centre of The Highlands, Fort Augustus Abbey provides comfortable, private apartments as a relaxing base from which to explore Urquhart Castle, Culloden, Clava Cairns, Skye, Ben Nevis and whisky distilleries. The Highland Club is unique, steeped as it is in centuries of Scottish history, and a special, relaxing place to stay – either on a self-catered holiday or as an owner of one of the luxury residences. Amenities exclusively for use by those who are staying with us include an indoor pool, steam and sauna, the club lounge and snooker room. Within the grounds there is a tennis court and many other facilities including outdoor chess in the Cloister Garden, table tennis, badminton, croquet, boules, 5-a-side football and a cricket pitch with nets. The Boathouse Restaurant with its exclusive Loch side view is available both to guests and the local community alike. Explore the grounds, walk along the shores of Loch Ness, stroll along the Caledonian Canal watching boats go by. From here the opportunities are limitless – from the more typical activities of walking, cycling, golf, sailing, fishing, shooting, archery, wow balling, ski-ing (in winter) and bird watching to the more unusual such as dog sledding and Munro Bagging.
