The Old Convent Apartments, Fort Augustus, Loch Ness, Inverness-Shire, The Highlands (Sleeps 1-4)

The Old Convent Apartments are a collection of luxury holiday homes located in a beautiful part of Inverness-shire at Fort Augustus by Loch Ness. These holiday homes are ideal for couples friends and families who want to explore this stunning part of Scotland.

All the apartments have been renovated to a very high standard adding modern touches like central heating and double glazing! They are all very comfortable and spacious with all the facilities you could possibly need.

The Old Convent was originally built as a church by Lord Lovat in 1842 and known as St.Peters chapel. In 1888 it was then offered to ‘The Sister’s of Mercy’ from Elgin to use as a school and their convent, during their short occupation it was known as St.Columba’s convent. After extensive renovations were completed in March 1892 for a new order of nun’s, it was renamed St Scholastica’s Priory until 1922 when the remaining nuns were moved to Holm Eden Abbey. Since then many people have lived in the convent including a few let’s say…'colourful' characters!

Fort Augustus is the perfect place to relax with a short walk to the centre 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 to Loch Ness or simply chill on the canal side watching the boats negotiate the locks!
