There are apartments in all of the buildings which constituted Fort Augustus Abbey, so you can choose between Loch views in the Monastery, the wonderful architecture of the Old school , the pet friendly cottages with open fire, or the great value apartments in the Raven Wing which was an annex to the school. There are some unique individual buildings named after their original use such as the Chapter House , the Scriptorium.
and St Andrews Memorial Chapel.
Lets start with St. Andrews Chapel. This is a stunning 2 bedroom apartment retaining all of the features of this memorial chapel with stained glass windows, depicting the saints. The owners have furnished it beautifully to compliment this and give a feeling of tasteful opulence. The memorial chapel is situated at the back of the abbey church but actually predates it. Easy access into the abbey church and facilities such as the swimming pool.

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 cottage 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 cottage 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.
