Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Fort Augustus - St Andrew's Chapel

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.

Highland Club Direct Property - St Andrew's Chapel in Monastery on Loch Ness
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Couldn't wish for more. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This is a real gem, really well looked after and well presented. It is a real pleasure to go to a property and the pictures don't do it justice, the decor is smart and modern but keeps the essence of the chapel which makes the place so special. The pool/sauna/steam room is great to warm up after a long walk around the loch. Beautiful setting and so lovely to have access to the loch - less then 1 minute walk from the front door. We would definitely recommend a trip.
