No.4 The Old Convent.
The Old Convent.
No.1 The Old Convent is a ground floor apartment which has just been sympathetically renovated to a very high standard but keeping some of the character and adding modern central heating and double glazing! No.3 & No.4 are first floor apartments. The Old Convent is situated in the picturesque village of Fort Augustus on the southern tip of Loch Ness, which is virtually the geographical center of the Highlands. A perfect base for exploring the spectacular scenery and amenities that the area has to offer.
We, Felicity & Chris are local and live in what was the priests quarters when the building was originally a church and are able to suggest many wonderful day trips combining superb scenic drives and walks, with castles, brochs and ruins that you probably won't find in any guide book.
Fort Augustus is the perfect place to relax with a short walk to the center of the village where you can find grocery shops, butcher, post office, ATM, petrol station and several pubs and restaurants. You can take a boat trip up Loch Ness or simply chill on the canal side watching the boats negotiate the locks!
Chris is able to offer both guitar (beginner/intermediate) & fiddle (beginner) lessons to anyone who fancies a go.
The Old Convent was originally built as a church in 1842, then converted into a convent 'St Scholastica's Priory' in 1891, the nun's took residence in 1892 until 1922 when the remaining nun's were moved to Holme Eden Abbey. Some of the nun's are buried in the graveyard at Fort Augustus Abbey, half a mile from the convent on the shores of Loch Ness.
We are close to main road with the convent woods to rear giving you privacy, and a fantastic view of golf course and Ben Tee to front.
The property is ready for guests arrival from 4pm unless otherwise arranged, we ask that guests leave by 10am on day of departure as we need time to clean for next guests.
If No.1 is already booked for your preferred dates please ask about No.3 or No.4

We, Chris & Felicity are local and have lived in The Old Convent since 1994. We managed to buy this beautiful old building in 2009 and have been lovingly renovating it to a (we hope) very high standard keeping a lot of the original features but adding some modern and quirky touches.
Felicity Rogers purchased this Apartment in 2009

An absolutely amazing place!! Superb location. Very well appointed-kitchen, great appliances with even a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Apartment is very spacious and tastefully decorated. Owners- Felicity and Chris were super friendly and helpful. I highly recommend- these luxury accommodations at a great rate. Thanks! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and all the travel tips.
Thank you for your comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here and had fun exploring the area. Felicity & Chris
This accommodation exceeded our expectations. We read the reviews and saw the pictures but it was even better once we got there. We stayed at no 4. for a week. The apartment was large, comfortable, well equipped and beautifully decorated. We simply loved everything about this apartment. True home away from home. Felicity and Chris (the owners) were very nice and kind. They gave us some great tips for day trips (Chris, the Glen Nevis waterfall was breathtaking and we would have never known if you hadn't mentioned it to us!)
Overall, Fort Augustus is a small, quiet village and probably one of the best starting points if you want to explore The Highlands and The Isle of Skye. One day we would like to come back as there is so much more to explore and the Scottish people are one of the nicest people we have met on our travels. And if we do come back then we would definitely stay at The Old Convent. Chris and Felicity, thank you for your hospitality!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so happy you enjoyed your holiday here with us and had fun exploring the many amazing places here in the Highlands. Felicity & Chris
This place is both beautiful and functional. Felicity and Chris have done an amazing job in restoring this property. Our room was very clean and in perfect condition. The location is central to everything in the Highlands and a great home away from home. I would love to stay here again.
Thank you, we are so glad you liked the apartment and your short break here. Felicity & Chris.
This was an awesome place. The hosts were very welcoming, showed us the place as well as had wonderful information and recommendations for jaunts around the area. The flat was very well equipped and the grounds were lovely!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay here and enjoyed the area. Felicity & Chris
