As we use these properties as our second home we have paid particular attention to the furnishings and decor so that you also feel the home factor. I am sure you will be very comfertable in these spectacular places.

If you are visiting the Highlands there is just no better place to be. Not only are you so centrally located that you can visit all main sights within a day trip in all directions, but you also have the spectacular abbey to explore with all its sports and leisure facilities.
Combining your visit with a trip to Edinburgh just rounds off your experience of Scotland. Please ask me for a combination offer with my Edinburgh apartment.
Wegen einem Brandschaden wird der Pool leider bis voraussichtlich Anfang August 2017 nicht im Betrieb sein.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Moat House #3. Beautiful grounds and an easy walk into town.
This is a very beautiful place to stay. The Abbey and the property of the Highland Club are amazing. We had fun in the community billiards/club room and had a nice break swimming in the heated pool, sauna and steam room. Moat House number 3 needs updated photos; the current photos do not really show how spacious and nice the apartment is. We were very happy to find a nicer and larger apartment than we expected. The apartment is nicely furnished and very clean. I think the Moat house probably has the best views of any apartment. The apartment overlooks the interior courtyard which is beautiful. We had spent time in Edinburgh and wished we had allowed more than 4 days staying at the Highland Club. We did not want to leave the Highland Club. We enjoyed having 2 dinners at the Boat house restaurant on the grounds of the Highland Club. We enjoyed the views of Loch Ness and the food in the Boat House. Outside the club grounds is the village of Ft. Augustus with nice restaurants and shops. We took a speed boat ride across Loch Ness which was a lot of fun. The boat tour operator is located just on the edge of the Highland Club. Loch Ness is a great place to stay in the Highlands with many villages and castles nearby to visit.
We were looking for our family of six for a relaxing location also suitable for a base for one day trips to the Highlands and the isles: we found all of that and much more. Fort Augustus is linked with good roads to the main attractions of the Highlands region; good food, groceries and a supermarket are available in place and Inverness with its bigger stores are in one hour of car distance, for more sophsticated needs. The flat is lovely, very comfortable, completely furnished and accessorized with all the more useful electrical apparels. Really noteworthy is the view of the internal courtyard of the abbey from the wide windows of the living room. The flat is well located inside a benedictine abbey in a complex where it is possible to play lots of sports and games indoor and outdoor. The library/billiard room obtained from the old refectory is wonderful for relaxing in the evenings. With our children, after our daily trips, we played every sorts of sports in the evening and the bench on the shore of Loch Ness was our favourite place for spotting Nessie at sunsets. Unfortunately we didn't see her, but we are sure next time we will do it.
Finally, Mrs. Claire Lee was very helpful, kind and complete in giving us all the information needed for our stay.
Wir haben in dieser liebvoll und überkomplett ausgestatteten Wohnung eine wunderbare Woche verbracht. Es hat sich sofort das Gefühl von "zu Hause" eingestellt. Am Ufer des Loch Ness lässt es sich wunderbar entspannen. Laufen entlang des Caledonien Canal, Boule oder Croquet, Tennis oder Federball, Tischtennis und vieles mehr: es kommt nie Langeweile auf. Und das eben in einem wunderschönen Ambiente.
Die Vermieterin ist sehr bemüht ihren Gästen den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten, hat viele Tipps vorbereitet und steht jederzeit als Ansprechpartner zu Verfügung. Danke Mairi, für diesen schönen Urlaub!
