Upon arrival to the Highland club premises we were in awe. From the massive grounds to the abbey itself we were already impressed and hadn't even stepped foot inside.
We were met by a lovely lady called Pebble who gave us a guided tour of the building and grounds (we really did need one the place is huge) she was very knowledgeable and gave us so much information without overwhelming us.
The Boys Dormitory was fantastic. Very spacious and modern while keeping the traditional feel with the original features of the building. A personal highlight for my girlfriend was the huge window seat looking straight out of over Loch Ness... thats right Loch Ness right on your doorstep! Above all though, the place was spotless. No dust, hairs or stains ANYWHERE.
The bed was so comfortable and with a great selection of dvds, fully kitted out kitchen, Champers in the fridge and complimentary 'illy' coffee it really was a home away from home.
Even the stairs didn't spoil it, everyone knows more stairs means better view!
All in all it was the perfect romantic getaway and words can't quite describe how great it was (but I gave it a good try haha)
Be warned, once you're there you won't want to leave. Really.
Thank you Mark & Laurie, will be staying in the Boys Dormitory in the near future!
Our 5 day break in February was wonderful. The location of the apartment at the bottom of Loch Ness has to be seen to be believed. The view is stunning and pours in through the windows. It's difficult to move from the sumptuous sofas as they are perfectly positioned to 'Loch Watch'. The entire apartment is full of character and the furnishings and attention to detail help to make this a holiday to remember. We would love to return in the Autumn.
We stayed the end of Jan/Feb 2014 for 4 nights, just wished we had booked longer, it makes a pleasant change to arrive on your break and find everything is just like the pictures. We felt at home the minute we arrived. I would fully recommend this stay . The owner's take pride in ensuring your stay will be all that you want. Right down to the find detail in the booklet you receive filled with all you need to know for your stay. This trip will become an annual vacation for us.
Often you hire a holiday let and when you get there it is a bit of a disappointment and doesn't quite match up to how it was described to you... the Boys Dormitory is the opposite - its looks fantastic on the website and it is even better when you get there.
A beautifully furnished apartment - spotlessly clean, warm and cosy with everything you could wish for. The view from the lounge area is absolutely stunning - it was magical sitting in the huge mullioned window area gazing down Loch Ness.
The bed was roomy, soft and comfy and the bathroom fabulous and how lovely to be supplied with bathrobes for your stay.
The Abbey itself has plenty to keep you occupied and I particularly enjoyed swimming everyday in the pool in the converted chapel - again so unique.
Cannot recommend this place enough - I will certainly be booking again
I am lucky enough to have stayed in some of the best hotels in the UK but this apartment ( The Boys Dormitory) and area has captured my heart. My fiancé and I decided we would book 3 nights but we loved it so much that we booked an extra night and if I'm honest that still wasn't enough!! Charles and Pebble were great and made us feel so welcome we are already planning our next visit. The views from our apartment were fabulous and you don't even need to leave if you don't want too but you won't be disappointed if you do.
