Perfect place to enjoy a stay in Scotland’s Highlands. Quaint little town in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t have been more pleased with our choice to stay at Moat House 3 of the old abbey. The property was clean, comfortable and generally well maintained. Easy access to many special sights we visited during our 3 night stay. The indoor pool was AMAZING, far better than the online photos portray. The owner Mairi was very responsive and easy to work with as we prepared to arrive, and the property manager was waiting upon our arrival with keys and a walk through of the property. The setting of the property was picturesque, and we had very quick access to several great shops and restaurants nearby. Being situated on Loch Ness is about as good as it gets. I highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Scotland, and I would definitely return here if my travels take me back to Scotland.

Great Flat in Amazing Abbey on Loch Ness

  • 5 of 5

This flat is very clean and comfortable and is in a stunning location. The abbey was such a fun place to stay. It had amazing views of Loch Ness, and Fort Augustus is a beautiful village. The Boathouse restaurant by the abbey was also delicious and conveniently located. We stayed here with four adults, and the flat had everything we needed. Someone met us at check-in to show us around the abbey and to our flat; everything was very smooth. We loved our stay and would definitely come back. Highly recommended for anyone planning a trip to Inverness.

Luxurious comfort in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 day stay and could not have enjoyed it more. Found just the right combination of relaxation and adventure, with hikes and a drive to the Isle of Skye. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed for two adults and twin 10 year olds. A vacation they will not forget with beautiful pool, chess in the courtyard and amazing sites, The evening cruise on the Loch was an great. Highly recommend!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property offers a unique experience to stay in an circa1730s Abbey directly on the southern shores of Loch Ness. The apartment is modern and nicely done with everything you need to feel at home, and it has a view of the lovely Abbey courtyard. The views of Loch Ness from the back yard of the Abbey are stunning. Walking around the Abbey we felt like we were at Hogwarts!

The owner is not local, but there is a central management company overseeing guests staying in the individually owned apartments, so check in, etc. is easily arranged.

The owner is responsive and communicative.

The Abbey is a short walk into the charming town with about half a dozen restaurants and pubs, plus some cool gift shops. The town has walking/hiking paths and is right on the Caledonian Canal, and it’s fun to watch the boats go through the locks. There is a bike/walking/hiking path along the canal. Bike rentals are available.

We liked it so much that we canceled several planned day trips so that we could relax in the peace and beauty of Fort Augustus!

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property was great. It was enjoyable to be able to have an evening drink right on Loch Ness, and a real highlight staying in an Abbey.

The apartment itself needs some attention and was slightly run down. Little things like the washing machine not working, cracks in crockery and the shower screen not closing easily.

Great few nights in Scotland though.
