About the property

Luxury Self Catering Holiday Apartment in Monastery with views over Loch Ness

Caladh (meaning 'Haven' in Gaelic) is a very large one bedroom apartment and is the epitome of luxury. A stunning living room with views down Loch Ness and the quality and comfort of its furnishings with their traditional Scottish influences, make this is a retreat within a retreat. Don't be misled by the description 'one-bedroom' ... this is an exceptionally spacious property.

The flat's large entrance hall is accessed from the old cloisters and has a heated 'boot -room' area (for those wet days that can happen in Scotland) and toilet/shower room.

As you enter the body of the flat from this entrance hall there is a well-equipped open-plan kitchen on your left (including a Nespresso coffee machine for coffee-heads) and, on your right, steps lead to a raised double-height living room where two large Gothic-style windows allow spectacular views of Loch Ness beyond manicured lawns and mature trees. The immediate sensation is stillness and silence. (You just know that you can write that book in this place)

The luxurious master bedroom (all fabrics and furnishings are from Anta Scotland) is situated on a mezzanine level. Large double-height curtains are opened and closed from the bedside so that you can be cocooned in comfort at night and view Loch Ness from your bed first thing in the morning.

The bathroom is opulent with both a large shower and a large bath (with top quality Hansgrohe fittings) as well as under floor heating.

Adjoining dressing area with two large double wardrobes and a separate 'snug' room ( with a second TV and internet access) complete the picture.

Whatever your need ... the perfect romantic break. the place to celebrate a special wedding anniversary, to 'retreat' and recharge, write that book, climb a Munro, get fit, chill out and reflect on life ... there is no place better than this apartment.

Our property manager will meet you on arrival and show you to your accommodation where a welcome pack will be waiting for you.

Great location at Loch Ness

  • 4 of 5

Luxury appartment with great view. It contained everything you can think of. Downside was the non-availability of the pool and the spa area. We don't know if we were informed prior to booking.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Caladh apartment. We are pleased you had a wonderful holiday and the apartment had everything that you required. Naturally I was concerned to read that you may not have been aware of the non availability of the pool, sauna and steam room. This should not have been the case as it is not in our interest to mis lead people. The lack of pool facilities is advertised on our website also on all the booking information. I have checked all correspondence sent to you and this information was forthcoming. I am sorry that you have overlooked this but hope you will visit again soon once our pool is up and running. Kind regards Joanne Highland Club Direct

A very cosy place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the Caladh property. It really felt like home, with all necessary facilities for cooking, washing, etc. It is a very spacious property with a large lounge and kitchen, another small area with a sofa, and two bathrooms. Very comfortable!

Caladh : a unique living space within a former Benedictine monastery

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful 8 days in Caladh (appropriately named as a haven). The first impression is one of space. You are immediately drawn to the high windows with their view across gardens to Loch Ness. The furnishings throughout perfectly complement the layout, featuring a tartan design. There is plenty of space in which to relax in the lounge. The kitchen/dining area is very well equipped. The sleeping area is situated on the Mezzanine, a short distance from a corridor that leads to a pleasant relaxing space with a sofa that can be converted into a bed.

There are plenty of facilities in and around the Abbey itself, with its large grounds. The village of Fort Augustus is just 5 minutes walk away. It has a fine butchers, grocery store and pubs. The Lock Inn is the best pub, whilst The Bothy has the widest range of beers. The finest resraurant can be found in The Lovat House Hotel. The village itself is dominated by the confluence of the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness. There is always plenty of activity which makes for interesting viewing by landlubbers. A one hour informative cruise on Loch Ness is recommended.
