About the property

Luxury Self Catering Holiday Accommodation in Monastery on Loch Ness

St Andrew’s Chapel is one of the premium properties within a Benedictine Monastery know as The Highland Club. Conveniently located near the spa and swimming pool, it is exceptional in every way. This spacious 2 bedroom property has an abundance of original features, in particular beautiful stained glass windows depicting Scottish Saints and large stone arches that have been thoughtfully incorporated into the room design. The majestic rib vaulted ceiling and large ornate stone mullioned windows give a feeling of spaciousness and presence. The kitchen is stylish and well appointed with a large island and beautiful dining area.

The bedrooms are located on the first floor, accessed from the hall. The large galleried master bedroom with en-suite bathroom projects over the living area, allowing views of the stained glass windows and changing light throughout the day whilst still affording privacy. There is a twin bedroom on this level, which has access to a shower room on the ground floor. All rooms have been beautifully designed and tastefully furnished with great attention to detail.

This unique and beautifully furnished 2 bed apartment was formerly St Andrew's Chapel. Designed by Pugin the Chapel has elaborate gothic features, this differs from the main Abbey Church which was designed in Norman style during a later period.

The Highland Club itself is set in 20 acres of private gardens on the shores of Loch Ness. In the heart of the Highlands, this sympathetic conversion is an ideal base for exploring all that Scotland has to offer.

A Welcome Hamper is provided for 7 night stays and a small Welcome Pack for short breaks. Our property manager will meet you on arrival and show you to your accommodation. As a guest you will have access to all The Highland Club has to offer.

An odd but wonderful journey

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in "St Andrew's Chapel N°6". The Highland Club is just amazing with its beautiful courtyard on the Loch Ness.

The apartment is located in the building which have been the church of a monastery. The living room and the open kitchen is toped with archways and stained-glass windows are illuminated the apartment.

Decoration is very likely and the bed rooms are quite confortable.

Despite few problems with the hot water at the beginning, the customer service were perfect as we really enjoyed our stay.

Fort Augustus is perfect to visit the region from Inverness to Glencoe or even the island of Skye.

Exciting vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant stay. Accomodition was fantastic. My family really loved the ancient buidlings and especially the billard room and the outdoor chess game.

This was my first vacation I deeply regretted that we had to go home to Germany again.
