About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4)
The apartment which is on the first floor has a double bedroom with built in wardrobe (the ensuite has bath and separate shower) while a second bedroom can either be a double bed or two singles. There is also a separate bathroom, with shower over the bath. The main bedroom overlooks the cloister gardens and the giant chess/draughts game on the grass below.
The relaxing living area is open plan and retains many of its original features such as the arched windows and stone fireplace. There are comfortable sofas on which to watch the large flat screen tv (satellite freeview) and a library of DVDs and videos.
The kitchen area with its granite worktops is modern and fully equipped with gas hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and washer/dryer together with plenty of utensils and cooking equipment.
A few minutes' walk along the atmospheric cloister of the Abbey and you reach the converted monks' refectory, now a relaxing lounge with beautiful stained glass windows, a snooker table, table football and free WI-FI.
For leisure activities, there is an indoor swimming pool with sauna and steam room (please note the Swimming Pool Complex is now closed until 17th June 2017) - or you could relax in the 20 acres of private grounds overlooking the Loch, play tennis, croquet or bowls. There is just a 2 minute walk into Fort Augustus where you can watch the boats pass by through the centre of the village (through 5 locks) along the Caledonian Canal down into Loch Ness.
There are shops here for all the essentials as well as great pubs and restaurants for eating out. The area is wonderful for walking, taking cruises on the Loch and visiting the stunning castles of the Scottish Highlands. A boat trip can be taken to Urquhart Castle from the landing stage next door to the Abbey or you take the Express Ferry to Inverness.
Only 30 minutes away is the Nevis Range near Fort William. Walk up Ben Nevis (highest mountain in the British Isles) or view the amazing mountains from the gondolas (chair lifts). Mountain biking and Snowsports also take place here.

About: I'm a Harley Street Dental Surgeon who enjoys living and working in the wonderful city of London, but who also loves to get away from it all and relax. One of my favourite places to stay is at the Abbey, a peaceful retreat surrounded by the beautiful scenery and tranquility that is the Scottish Highlands. I have found travelling there a pleasure by car, train and plane and would be there much more often if I had the time! David Wright
Why Fort Augustus, Fort Augustus, Highland, UK:
On a driving tour of Scotland I discovered this stunning Abbey on the shores of Loch Ness. Having seen the sun set over the Abbey and the Loch, I couldn't believe how beautiful and romantic the setting was and I knew I had to return. I immediately reserved one of the apartments which had just been renovated. Since then I've been delighted, not only with the accommodation but the great location - an excellent base for exploring the Scottish Highlands.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Everything I need is within a few minutes' walk of the apartment - shops, post office, pubs, restaurants and tourist information. There is also a petrol station in the village. If I wish to stay within the Abbey grounds I can sit peacefully by the Loch or walk up to the Boathouse Restaurant -also within the grounds.
