“Perfect Engagement”
Reviewed 15 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We have just returned from 5 nights stay in the Boys Dormitory. We left a happy couple and returned a happy couple who are now engaged! I popped the question in the lounge overlooking the loch with the sun streaming through...it couldn't have been better :)

We arrived with high expectations given the wonderful reviews and lovely pictures and I have to say even those were exceeded. The whole Abbey is beautiful with copious facilities to help you enjoy your stay but the apartment and that incredible view are what made this such a special place for us. We will certainly be returning in the years to come (as lots of others have done according to the guestbook) and could not praise the Boys Dormitory highly enough. 10/10!

“The perfect place for a romantic, relaxing break”
Reviewed 24 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We booked a four-night stay in February, arriving by bus from Inverness Airport. Getting there was simple and we were welcomed with a thorough tour of the abbey's facilities and the apartment including a bottle of fizz in the fridge.

The location was idea for the amount of time we had - we were able to take a different walking route each day without needing a car. We brought some food with us for the first couple of days but needn't have as the local shops and butcher in Fort Augustus are well stocked.

February was a great time to visit because it was very quiet and peaceful. The pool, sauna and steam room are beautifully converted and well managed. We were usually the only ones there.

The apartment itself is absolutely stunning. Everything is of high quality and all our needs were catered for, including a kitchen that was a joy to cook in and a good stash of DVDs for the evenings. We were sad to leave and will definitely be visiting again.

“Best apartment we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We booked a romantic three night stay between Christmas and Hogmanay, and couldn't have been more pleased with the choice! The fort is a huge, breathtaking building located at the heart of the highlands with unsurpassed views over the loch. The Boys Dormitory is a luxurious conversion fitted to the highest standards. The two main views over the Abbey and loch need to be seen to be believed! We loved the small touches and enjoyed our first evening watching Braveheart with the complimentary wine and Scottish shortcakes. Really a very unique and enjoyable vacation. If you want to see the highlands you couldn't pick a more romantic or historic location to stay

“Can't wait to book again”
Reviewed 4 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The Boys Dormitory is a truly wonderful place , it's warm and cosy and the view from the arch window down the loch is magnificent whether its raining or the sun is shinning . We have been there on two occasions in the last two years , and can't wait to go back . The area is great for walking, mountain biking or just sitting by the canal with a pint watching the boats navigating through the various lochs.

great place to stay - ideally located for loch ness and caledonian canal - fabulous property - well furnished and felt like family home rather than holiday rental
