    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    No.3,The Old Convent is a 1st floor apartment which is situated in the picturesque village of Fort Augustus on the southern tip of Loch Ness, which is virtually the geographical center of the Highlands. A perfect base for exploring the spectacular scenery and amenities that the area has to offer.
    We, Felicity & Chris are local and live in one end of the convent and are able to suggest many wonderful day trips combining superb scenic drives and walks, with castles, brochs and ruins that you probably won't find in any guide book.
    Fort Augustus is the perfect place to relax with a short walk to the center of the village where you can find grocery shops, butcher, post office, ATM, petrol station and several pubs and restaurants. You can take a boat trip up Loch Ness or simply chill...

I have never written a review before but felt it would be a crime not to share our experience. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived to this beautifully restored apartment set in the old convent just a stone's throw from Fort Augustus centre. The peace and tranquility of the surrounding area was perfectly complimented by... more

We have just come back from a 4 night stay at No. 3 The Old Convent and would highly recommend it to anyone. The apartment was clean and well presented with lots of attention to detail and our stay was enhanced by the friendly and helpful welcome from Felicity, and her suggestions for walks/drives.
