About Charles Canning

I am pleased to market and manage a number of properties in this very prestigious setting, so I have contact from the moment you enquire until you leave after a great Holiday experience at Loch Ness. I live on site at the Highland Club, so I am available 24 hours 7 days to help with anything. That is my commitment both to guests and owners. I don't show a photograph as one shock is enough and you might just see Nessie while you are here.

Charles Canning purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Charles Canning chose Fort Augustus

If you drive through Fort Augustus you will pass within 30 Metres of the gates of The Highland Club, formerly ST Benedict's abbey. Yet you will probably miss it, a hidden jewel with the Loch on one side, the Caledonian canal on another and the River Tarff on a third side.

The seclusion, the peacefulness and the history, even the architecture are all still here, but now we also have luxury apartments with fantastic amenities, all right in the centre of the Scottish Highlands - why be anywhere else.

What makes this apartment unique

I never tire of the view of the Loch here, and love to wander down to the loch side and feel the peace and tranquillity. The craft passing down the Canal through the Locks are many and varied and I sit beside the Canal with a beer and let time pass me by.

In winter inside the Abbey is a wonderful place to be after a walk or a ski, the club lounge or the swimming pool are peaceful and relaxing.

Each apartment here is unique designed around the features of the original building, and finished off with personal touches by the owners.

The Highland Club is a converted Abbey with many original features not only of the Abbey but the original Fort built in 1715. The facilities include swimming pool, gym, Club lounge, tennis and badminton courts, croquet lawn, Table tennis, Barbecue stands, fishing rights on the loch, and an on site restaurant.

The village (a 2 minute walk ) is centred around the famous Canal Locks designed by Telford and you can enjoy lunch or a drink beside the canal watching them in operation as many varied craft come through into Loch Ness. There are a selection of ' Nessie Hunting' boat trips or fishing trips you can do from the canal side into the Loch, even taking in dinner at the Dores Inn round the loch, or visiting Urqhuart Castle.

The village also has a small Museum about the Caledonian Canal and the Locks. A short walk takes you to the Rare Breeds Farm.

Other sports activities are available at the Highland club buy arrangement: canoeing, kayaking, rifle shooting, archery and bicycles are available to rent on site.

Walking and cycling trails are in abundance all around Loch Ness and beyond. The Loch Ness Trail, The West Highland Way, The Great Glen Way, and many many more.

The village has a good range of pubs and restaurants and the quality is excellent. Check reviews The Lovat Loch Ness, and expect not only a great range of whiskey at the Lock Inn, but excellent wholesome food as well.

Fort Augustus is central to Inverness and Fort William so you can head north and take in Urquhart Castle and then the Loch Ness Visitor Centre at Drumnadrochit. In Inverness you might do the beech or the dolphin trip. You can also go to Inverness around the other side of the Loch or return that way as it is historic and scenic, stop and enjoy the views.

South towards Fort William will bring you firstly to Invergarry just 6 miles away, and the Great Glen Water Park, where among other things the adventurous might book a White Water Rafting trip on the River Garry, coinciding with the Dam release.

Then through Spean Bridge passing the Commando monument. and onward to Ben Nevis where you can choose the easy or hard way to the top. If you take an easy route you have to carry something, but don't try a piano, someone tried that many years ago and never made it - the piano never recovered!

When you come down go into the Nevis Distillery, find out Scotland's secret recipe and sample the result.

Of course you may take the ski lift up and even ski back down if you are here at the right time of year. Either way there is a restaurant where you can relax an enjoy the view

Fort William is a lovely town, have a wander round and try the Crannog seafood restaurant on the waterfront.

Coming out of Fort William further south takes us to Glen Coe, the visitor centre there is well worth a visit. The wildlife in this region will astound you if you take time to watch for it, and the information at the centre will help with that.

A great day out with the kids is to Landmark the Forest adventure park, and visit Aviemore if you have time.
