The Boys Dormitory Information


Luxurious, combining quality antique and modern furnishings for a comfortable and relaxing stay. This apartment features Victorian pictures, floorboards and vintage lighting sourced from a local chapel and with wonderful attention to detail throughout. The most idyllic place, a far cry from when up to 40 junior boys shared what was one of the original boarding school dormitories, located between the Abbot’s chapel and a lovely bell tower. The airy large living room and open plan kitchen offers the very finest level of comfort including two luxurious designer sofas. The view from the stone mullioned living room window straight up the loch is truly spectacular: a perfect seat to while away the afternoon reading a good novel, or watching for the legendary Loch Ness Monster. The gorgeous master bedroom features a massive stone mullioned arched window overlooking the Cloister Gardens, the turrets and towers of the Abbey, and the mountains beyond. King-sized antique brass and iron bed, Victorian oak pew, luxurious bed linens, choice of feather or fibre pillows, to ensure total relaxation for the duration of your stay.

Fort Augustus was built in the aftermath of the Jacobite rebellion of 1715, as part of a chain of military garrisons between Fort William and Inverness. It fell to the Highlanders in 1745 after only two days’ siege, when an artillery shell blew up the gunpowder magazine of the fort. The Fort was sold to the Lovat family in 1867 and they passed the site onto the monks of the Benedictine order, who set out to create a place of peace and worship on the banks of Loch Ness. The building dates from the 1870’s, with much of the architectural work carried out by the Pugin brothers. The Grade A listed building was converted into luxury apartments in 2005. The fabulous architectural features of the abbey have been retained, including the many ornate turrets and towers, the extensive cloisters, the chapel, the refectory, many stained glass windows, gargoyles, arched windows, beautiful tiled floors and stunning staircases.

  • Road from Glasgow (139.0 miles)

    This route takes in Glencoe, perhaps Scotland's most famous and most scenic glen.

    From Glasgow, take the A82 north, along the banks of the beautiful Loch Lomond.

    Continue on the A82 to Crianlarich, where the terrain becomes barren and wild as you pass through Rannoch Moor. We almost always see red deer on the moors, paticularly in the twilight.

    The A82 then takes you through the valley of Glencoe - home of the famous Glencoe Massacre - and along the banks of Loch Linnhe to Fort William.

    Travel through Fort William on the A82, to Spean Bridge, with a stunning viewpoint at the Commando Memorial.

    From Spean Bridge (still on the A82), follow the banks of Loch Lochy and Loch Oich, to arrive in Fort Augustus, and Fort Augustus Abbey.

  • Road from Inverness Airport (44.0 miles)

    This stunning drive takes in the best of the Scottish highlands: far reaching views over the hills, deep valleys with fast-moving rivers, peaceful little lochs and occasional glimpses of the mighty Loch Ness.

    From Inverness Airport, take the A96 to Inverness.
    In Inverness, turn right on the A9 toward Perth, and follow the A9 for 5.4 miles.

    Turn right onto the B851, and follow this road for 13.5 miles,

    Turn left onto the B862, and follow this road for approx 16.5 miles to Fort Augustus.

    The gates to the Fort Augustus Abbey are on your right as you enter Fort Augustus.
