“Perfect accommodation in a perfect location”
Reviewed 13 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed for 4 nights for a girlie weekend, the accommodation was first class. Chris & Felicity made us feel very welcome and took the time to show us around the apartment and explained how everything worked. The apartment has been finished to an extremely high standard with everything you could possibly need - a real home from home. The Old Convent is a work in progress but the attention to detail in the apartments that are completed are second to none. It is very clear through conversations with Chris & Felicity the passion they have for this building and we wish them all the best to complete their project. We will definitely be back.

“Really lovely 2 bedroom flat over 2 floors with lovely features”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed here in April 2017 and loved it. Really interesting building, gradually been restored by the owners to a very high standard. Very spacious living area, kitchen, and bedrooms, and all very well equipped. Loved the exposed stone walls. Lots to do in and around Fort Augustus. Would definitely recommend.

“perfect holiday accommodation with everything provided.”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Colin and Felicity have gone to great lengths to provide a first class holiday destination. The attention to detail is second to none. The facilities and the apartment we booked was spacious, very comfortable, tastefully decorated and furnished.
Felicity was very informative about the history of the building and the future plans for it. She was also very informative about local walks around the area has we had taken our dog with us...very pet friendly.

“A real home from home. Fantastic.”
Reviewed 5 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed for 3 nights at No. 4. We loved it, a real home from home!! Perfect for families with children & couples alike. The quality of the fixtures and fittings are great. Good quality bedlinen & towels. The central heating is super & the flat was toasty very quickly. The owners had laid a fire in the log burner for us. The kitchen is really well stocked, best we've stayed in. Great range of pans, utensils, dishwasher tabs etc. The location is perfect for a short walk into the village and to pick up the beautiful walks along the many footpaths around the property. We will be back here again. Well done Chris and Felicity, you've really done a great job providing top quality accommodation!!!

“Comfortable well-equipped apartment”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Stayed for four days over Christmas period. The weather was wild at times, but the apartment was warm, comfortable and well-equipped and the owners very welcoming. They also gave us some good tips on the best way to climb Ben Tee !

We are glad you enjoyed your wintery Christmas break here. Chris and I are local and have a good knowledge of some routes that are not advertised which does help our guests in finding a nicer walk or drive. Ben tee is a good example of the advertised route not being as nice as the one locals use! Felicity & Chris

“Everything you could wish for and more”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

When we saw the pictures of this property on the Owners Direct website we hoped it would be the ideal place for us to stay. When we arrived it exceeded all our expectations. The apartment had been refurbished to a very high standard with furnishings that suited it perfectly. Everything you could possibly need was provided. It was warm, comfortable a real home from home. The couple that own the property were two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. Nothing was too much trouble, they were only too willing to suggest places to see and places to eat. If anyone is thinking of visiting Fort Augustus we recommend you try the Old Convent, we're certain you won't be disappointed.

“A Perfect Home Base”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a spacious rental that is basically newly renovated. Its in a former convent where the owners and an another apartment or two also are. This was a perfect base for our travels in the area and is fully equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. Lots of room, very quiet. Also, there is off street parking. My only note is that this is an upstairs unit so if stairs are a problem you may want to steer clear.

As for towns Fort Augustus where the property is located is as cute a little town as you will see and sits right on Loch Ness. The locks at this end of the Loch pass right through town. All in all this was the perfect base to day trip from.
