The space
The SCRIPTORIUM - once the secret 'writing room' of the monastery - forms now the very special framework of a unique one-bedroom-apartment on 2 floors with plenty of original features;
whilst lounge/kitchen and spacious bathroom is at ground floor, the bedroom is upstairs under the high chapel ceiling & surrounded by stained glass windows...fluffy bathrobes are provided to stroll to the ChapelPool and feel very cozy within your apartment!

This is a self-catering APARTMENT for 2, one of the very few in the abbey totally detached from other apartments.

All facilities of The Highland Club available are included; like The Chapel Pool with sauna & steam room, The Club Lounge in the former refectory with full-sized snooker table, MiniGym, Tennis Court and so much more to explore!!!

Guest access
Surrounded on three sides by water, the abbey is set on the southern end of Loch Ness in 20 acres of beautiful mature garden grounds which extend right down to the shoreline of Loch Ness; its just 40 minutes drive from the City of Inverness.

THE HIGHLAND CLUB -as part of the services for YOU - includes an heated indoor swimming POOL with steam room & sauna, a well equipped MiniGYM, a tennis court, badminton net, giant chess, BBQ-places, croquet lawn, outdoor table tennis and cricket pitch, and a Club Lounge with full sized snooker table (free WLAN connection!), also with the 'Boathouse' restaurant on site at the shores of Loch Ness... you will have a very enjoyable, luxury stay!

IMPORTANT NOTICE;
the Chapel Pool Complex, Club Lounge and Gym remain closed ... unfortunately, current government guidelines prevent us from re-opening these facilities...however, outdoor sports are allowed and the beautiful Scottish outdoors await your adventures!
