Riverside is a luxury self catering cottage in the grounds of the Highland Club, at Fort Augustus Abbey on the shores of Loch Ness.  Although separate from the actual Abbey complex all the facilities of the Abbey are available for guests. Once completed this will include a swimming pool and a residents lounge with pool/snooker table and internet access. Tennis courts, badminton, table tennis, croquet lawn and a giant chess set are now available and with a barbecue area and seating by the loch side you will be able to enjoy the long summer evenings, chatting with new friends and just soaking up the view. The Abbey at Fort Augustus is the ideal place to get away from it all and spend some quality time just relaxing and enjoying the refined atmosphere of this historic Abbey.

The Boathouse restaurant, on the shores of Loch Ness is just a couple of minutes walk from your accommodation and the facilities of the village of Fort Augustus, again are only a few minutes walk. Walking, cycling, golfing, fishing are all well catered for in the surrounding areas and the cottage is ideally located for touring the Highlands.  Fort William, Isle of Skye and Inverness the capital of the Highlands - all are within an hour's drive from your accommodation.

Fort Augustus is a very popular holiday destination and offers visitors a variety of restaurants and bars along with a small supermarket and a post office.  The Caledonian canal runs through the village and many an hour can be spent just watching the boats going through the locks on their way to and from Loch Ness, or you can take a trip on Loch Ness and do a spot of “Nessie” hunting.

The cottage is set over two floors with an open plan kitchen/living area, twin bedroom and separate bathroom downstairs. The master bedroom is upstairs and has a separate bathroom with bath and shower. The access to the cottage is suitable for wheelchairs and with a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, it means the cottage is ideal for disabled or older guests

The cottage was excellent in most respects. However it needs a wardrobe in the downstairs bedroom as there is no other hanging space. Also we had no broadband all week and for anyone relying on this it could be a problem. There were one or two other minor irritations but these did not spoil the overall experience.

We had an amazing week at the Abbey and it ended way to soon. The staff were friendly, the pool was relaxing, all the extra games were a godsend for the children and the setting was lovely. Fort Augustus itself is charming and the scenery from the Abbey is spectacular. I would definitely recommend it to other friends, I have to one couple and they are already booked to go in November. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Thank you
