“magical!”
Reviewed 29 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

just spend the most relaxing three days and nights at the boy's dormitory in The Abbey, Fort Augustus. The view of Loch Ness from the lounge windows was spetacular. I loved the way the mist rolled over the loch in the mornings. The apartment had everything we could possibly need for a relaxing break. There are plenty of eating places and pubs in the village of Fort Augustus which is just a two minute walk away. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a romantic getaway.

“Fantastic, well equipped apartment with fantastic views”
Reviewed 28 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed in the Boy's Dormitory for one week in September this year for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. The apartment was lovely, comfortable, spacious and very well equipped to a very high standard. It had everything we needed. The views from the apartment were fantastic with a great view of Loch Ness. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area and Fort Augustus is literally on the doorstep. We would recommend the Boat House restaurant for food. There are quite a few steps up to the apartment and so may not suit the less mobile. We would have no hesitation staying here again and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Stayed here for 4 nights in July. The Abbey is a wonderful place to stay and the Boys Dormitory was a good choice, plenty of space, clean and comfortable. The apartment was at the top of the building with good views through the beautiful shaped windows over Loch Ness. The cloisters are a must to see and walk round. Fort Augustus itself is like a small resort with 5 canal locks and very good eating places. We would stay at the Abbey again but might try one of the other apartments only due to the amount of steps - 75.

“Fabulous apartment with stunning views!”
Reviewed 20 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Spent a week in this lovely apartment. Took a whlle to get used to the stairs but worth it for the views from the living room - simply stunning, whatever the weather!! Apartment very well furnished and kitted out to a very high standard - could have stayed on permanently!! We can thoroughly recommend the high speed rib boat trip in the evening to Dores (book a table at the Dores Inn in advance - it is very busy).

“Perfect relaxing long weekend getaway”
Reviewed 5 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed in the Boys Dormitory for 4 nights in May. The weather was miserable, but it suited the setting! We spent most of our time gazing out over loch ness while sipping champagne and wine.

Location wise...it was pretty easy to get to by car from Inverness airport, and driving in just about any direction leads to some amazing views of the highlands.
