Why Mairi Stewart chose Inverness, Loch Ness & Nairn

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.

Fabulous apartment in majestic surroundings

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure we found when we booked this apartment ! A very cosy and comfertable apartment with great views and lovingly decorated - we loved the wall colour and the artwork ! With the third private sleeping alcove on the upper landing and two bathrooms it was perfect for us as a party of five - it could well be advertsied as a 3-bedroom ! We found this holiday to be great value for money as everything, like swimming pool, sauna, tennis court, pool table...was included in the price. Actually there was so much to do in the abbey that we had trouble getting the kids to go out on trips ! But we did manage to see Skye - wonderful , and we made a very hairy trip to Applecross - which was well worth the formidable drive ! We also had the pleasure to combine our trip to Scotland by staying in the owners Edinburgh apartment - also fantastic ! We would highly recommend this flat especially to anyone with kids - just like staying in Hogwarts ! The owner was extremely friendly and responded immediately to our mails - alltogether a great experience ! Thank you !

Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis im Highland Club zu wohnen

  • 4 of 5

Das Appartement war voll ausgestattet, sehr geräumig und bot für 4 Personen genügend Wohnraum! Leider war es nicht ganz so sauber wie erwartet aber Staubsauger & Besen waren vorhanden und alles mit einigen Handgriffen so gemacht wie wir uns wohlfühlen! Bei 14 Tagen Aufenthalt würden nach der ersten Woche Bettwäsche & Handtücher gewechselt, TOP!!!!

Die Ausensnlage des Highland Clubs bittet unzählige Möglichkeiten für Groß & Klein! Wirklich ganz toll!

Tolle Wohnung in traumhaftem Anwesen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche in Maris sehr geschmack- und liebevoll ausgestatteter Wohnung im Highland Club verbracht. Die Lage und das Anwesen sind einmalig und passen sich wunderbar in die landschaftliche Kulisse ein. Direkt am Ufer des Loch Ness gelegen und im beschaulichen und idyllischen Fort Augustus kann man hier wirklich den Alltag hinter sich lassen und bei vielfältigem Freizeitangebot relaxen und entspannen. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, und mehr als komplett ausgestattet. Imposant auch die Lounge mit riesigem Billardtisch, Kicker und diversen anderen Spiel- und Unterhaltungsmöglichkeiten, die meine Kids auch mal die Handys beiseite legen ließen.

Der Ort Fort Augustus ist ein strategisch optimal gelegener Ausgangspunkt für diverse Ausflüge sowohl in den Norden, als auch in den Westen, eine Fahrt über die schmalen Landstraßen der Highlands durch traumhafte landschaftliche Kulisse.

Und nicht zuletzt gilt unser Dank Mairi, die jederzeit zu erreichen war und uns mit guten Tips und Infos versorgt hat, wo immer wir Fragen hatten!

un bel endroit

  • 5 of 5

L'abbaye est un site qui sort de l'ordinaire, avec ses vielles pierres du XIX et ses vitraux.

Les salles communes (piscine, lounge, ...) sont belles et agréables.

L'appartement est vaste.

Le gite est bien situé: il y un restaurant sympa à deux pas (le boathouse), la pelouse du part donne directement sur les berges du Loch Ness.

On peut faire ses courses à pied (supérette, et boucherie à 5 minutes) ainsi que des excursions en bateau sur le Loch.
