“The organisation of the swap by Amar was great, he was quick to answer messages, organise the swap and all the arrival information needed. Everything ran like clockwork, which isn't always the case. The location is stunning, on the banks of Loch Ness and bordering the village of Fort Augustus. The Abbey and grounds are almost self sufficient in terms of things to do and places to eat. If the weather is bad theres a pool and a games room. The property itself was fabulous, full of character and contains everything you would need. Very well furnished and equipped. We would go back any time and highly recommend Amar as a host and the property as a destination.”
Where is it?
The Highland Club is situated in the picturesque village of Fort Augustus which lies south-west of Loch Ness near the Caledonian Canal. Like any good village, there are a full selection of local amenities, including pubs, shops and restaurants.
Whether you’re into water sports, boating or spotting Nessie herself, the world famous Loch Ness will not disappoint. At 23 miles long, it is one of the longest and deepest lochs in Scotland. The character of the loch is undoubtedly awe-inspiring and varied given its size; so the view from the shifting banks changes dramatically as you travel through. With Inverness at the top, and Drumnadrochit to the west, the loch is connected by the surrounding A28 main road, allowing you to visit all of the key spots along the way.
From Fort William you can take the West Highland Railway. The West Highland Rail Line was, in 2009, voted by readers of Wanderlust Magazine the best rail journey not just in Scotland, Britain or Europe, but the world.
It’s a route well-known to fans of Harry Potter, with the 122-year-old Glenfinnan Viaduct becoming a place of pilgrimage for those following in the footsteps of the boy wizard on the Hogwarts Express Jacobite steam train between Fort William and Mallaig every year.
