As me and my brother originally planned this trip as a surprise trip for my father, I wanted to include one location that would blew his mind away. And the Chapter House was to be that location. It played it's intended part admirably. All of my family members were impressed with the history and grandeur displayed before us as we entered the Abbey and were shown around by the manager. What an absolutely fantastic location! Right next to Loch Ness even!
As a former archaeologist I was enjoying thoroughly walking the halls of the Abbey and admiring the detail. I loved the Chapter House, all the detail, the rustic feel and atmosphere. This place feels a little bit like magic. My parents were amazed, as were both my brothers. We loved our stay and enjoyed the pool and some games, like chess and croquet.
The only shame is that Fort Augustus seemed to attract bus loads of tourists, which kind of disturbed the peace of the village as it was swarming with tourbus groups.
We have one small point for improvement, some of the beds feel worn, and that way have become uncomfortable.
