Fort Augustus apartment description

The Old Armoury is a ground floor wheelchair friendly holiday home nestled on the shores of Loch Ness built in a unique location within the award winning Highland Club, St Benedicts Abbey, Fort Augustus which includes an indoor heated swimming pool, gym and spa plus may other outdoor facilities within the complex to provide a self-catering holiday on Loch Ness to remember! Fully equipped, including Wi-Fi, baby cot and high chair, this is an excellent choice for any group or family looking for something a bit different to the norm with all the creature comforts and more. The Old Armoury offers high quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings good enough to please even the most discerning visitor. This modern two bedroom, ground floor apartment is located in the Brothers Wing and is one of the most historically important sections of The Highland Club - built within the original bastion walls, this would have housed the armoury used in defence of the fort dating back to 1716. Ten meters from the adjoining parking area, and immediately on the shores of Loch Ness, it is one of the most convenient and accessible properties within The Highland Club.

The property is well equipped throughout, while benefiting from all the facilities The Highland Club has to offer and is one of a few wheelchair friendly properties in the Highland Club. Accessed via The Brothers’ Wing courtyard, and with all modern comforts and conveniences, this property is just steps away from the Club Lounge, the Monastery Lawn and variety of leisure facilities offered within this fabulous development, so it is the ideal place to enjoy everything on your doorstep, plus more when adventuring out into the Highlands themselves. The best of both worlds! Short breaks of 3 or more days available on request. Please email the owner for a quotation as prices quoted by the Home Away website are average daily rates based on a weekly rate and differ to the owners actual booking rates. Note - The apartment can accommodate 6 adults and 2 children, plus a baby. (Not suitable for 8 adults)
