Swimming Pool Complex currently closed
Robertson is a luxury self catering cottage in the grounds of the Highland Club, 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 living/dining/kitchen area, and bathroom downstairs. Upstairs is the master bedroom, together with an en-suite with bath and a separate shower, and an additional double bedroom, this room also has a sofa bed that can sleep an extra two guests.
Open plan living/dining/kitchen area.

The accomodation was clean, spacious and well furnished. The leisure facilities at the Abbey also contributed to a wonderful holiday. Would visit again without hesitation.
I visited this cottage and stayed there for 3 nights with my friend and family. It was really an wonderful experience and I loved every moment of the stay. The cottage was clean and tidy. Kitchen was very good and well equipped. The swimming pool was awesome. Bathrooms and bedrooms were very also clean and linens /towels were fresh and nice. Cottage was fantastically located near Loch Ness and the stream behind the cottage was pleasure to watch. I wish to visit the cottage again and will recommend all to go there.
We had a wonderful time. As soon as we arrived we had someone take us to our lodge and show us all the workings. Lodge was very well placed, right on the river and so close to all amenities. The Abbey was beautiful but we didn't have time to spend there. We had our dog and went lots of walks. The Boathouse restuarant served nice food but we thought the Mediterranean feel wasn't quite what one would want on the banks of Loch Ness! Our cottage was perfect, extremely comfortable, cosy, loved it
Excellent holiday location! The Abbey is beautiful and the cottage was really great as well. It is well equipped with everything you need including dvd's and board games. We had a great week there walking, munro-bagging and relaxing.
We( Partner & I, & our dog Maisy ) really enjoyed our stay in Fort Augustus,Cottage was very homely, Dog Friendly, spacious & only a stone throw from Loch Ness. Plenty of walks available along Canals or through the surrounding Forests with stunning views of the Loch. Nice walk to the WaterFall is recommended, even have a go on Zip-line in Forest along the way. Fort Augustus itself offers loads of trips along the Loch, Plenty of places to either eat out or get a Take away.
Beautiful cottage in nice quiet setting within the Abbey. Had a lovely week there and it was ideal location for getting out and about for walks around Fort Augustus with our little boy and dogs. It was also ideal property for our elderly parents as its mostly all on the flat. Fab heated swimming pool and eat out at the Boathouse restaurant both on the Abbey grounds. It's our 2nd holiday through Wilderness Cottages and would look to book with them again as overall experience has been excellent.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in our cottage. The place is tastefully furnished. Light spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, lovely surroundings, large flatscreen. What we did not like: - one bathroom had no shower, just a bathing tub without a shower faucet. This meant, you could not take a shower in the second bathroom. So you had to share the shower bathroom - the swimming pool opening hours the pool opened as I remember from 9am. This meant you could not have a swim before breakfast.
Excellent and beautiful location and a good base for exploring the Highlands and Great Glen. The Cottage provided everything you could possibly need and our dog was very happy !
Just returned from a wonderful week in Fort Augustus. Rental of cottages no 5 and no 8 could not have been better. The location and facilities at St Benedicts Abbey were exceptional and made a perfect central point to explore the highlands. the drive on the east side of Loch Ness, toward Inverness, proved to be more scenic than we could have imagined, the 243 steps to view the Falls of Foyer proving quite a challenge
No 8 was only one of a few cottages which allowed dogs which was our main critera however the cottage is also very well equiped inc sky & wifi, almost like a home from home,it was very clean and everything was provided(towels,linen,wood for the fire....etc) it had everything we needed and was an excellent base for exploring the area with the dog(some very good walks only a short car journey), this cottage is highly recommended, I think we will go back next year(something we never do).
