GRUINYARDS - luxury holiday apartment by Loch Ness

Welcome to the best views of Loch Ness!

A unique top floor holiday apartment in the historic Abbey at Fort Augustus on the tip of Loch Ness with stunning views along the Loch. Newly converted and beautifully appointed, it sleeps 4-6 people. Midway along the Great Glen Way, it makes a perfect base for exploring the Scottish Highlands.

Monastery 18, 'Gruinyards', surely has the most spectacular views of Loch Ness anywhere. On the top floor of the former Benedictine abbey at Fort Augustus, Gruinyards has two bedrooms and is beautifully appointed with many original features.  It has been graded as 4* Excellent by VisitScotland.

The apartment benefits from all the facilities of The Highland Club, making it a perfect base from which to explore the Highlands or simply enjoy Loch Ness and the Great Glen.

The open plan living-dining room has high sloping ceilings and a huge stone window that gives stunning views right along Loch Ness. There are also views over the hills to the east and the abbey cloisters to the south. The elegantly furnished living room features a fully equipped kitchen area and an oak dining table that can be extended to seat 8.  There is a large TV with a wide range of DVDs, as well as a selection of games, maps and guide books.

The spacious master bedroom also has high ceilings and views on two sides. It is bright and airy and boasts a magnificent en-suite with a roll-top bath overlooking Borlum Hill.

The apartment also has a very comfortable twin bedroom, a second bathroom and a double sofa bed in the living room - more details of the accommodation can be found here.
