Property description

The Old Armoury is a ground floor (wheelchair friendly) holiday home nestled on the shores of Loch Ness built in a unique Abbey in a unique location known as the award winning Highland Club, St Benedicts Abbey, Fort Augustus and centrally located within the Highlands of Scotland.

Its facilities include a 10 metre indoor heated swimming pool ('Chapel Pool') located in the Pugin designed Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, a steam room and sauna. Pugin’s sandstone walls are set off by a Brazilian green slate floor and large ornate windows affording stunning views across the Great Glen. The complex is serviced by a small changing room, shower and storage lockers. The gym is located on the floor below with weights, running, rowing and cycling equipment. Outside there's tennis courts, badmington, a barbaque fronting Loch Ness, a Giant Chess board, adventure playground, 5-a-side football, as well as may other outdoor activities located around Loch Ness. So much to do!

The apartment is 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 defense of the fort dating back to 1716. Just ten meters from the adjoining free 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 based on 6 guests, plus a baby. While benefiting from all the facilities, The Highland Club has lots more than most Scottish Highland holiday lets have to offer and is one of a few wheelchair friendly properties at the Abbey.

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, as already mentioned, a 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 three or more days available on request. Please email the owner for a quotation for stays of more than three days and less than seven days as the booking rates shown on this website is unable to calculate an actual quotation for such short stays at this apartment. Note - A one off £25 surcharge applies per stay for the usage of extra bed linen for the sofa beds. However, guests are welcome to bring their own bed linen, duvets, blankets or sleeping bags if they are using the sofa beds.
