Things to do in the area

Centrally located in The Highlands of Scotland and mid-way along the Great Glen, you will be well placed at The Abbey in Fort Augustus to enjoy all that the Highland Club, and this beautiful area of South Loch Ness has to offer.

Sitting on the southern tip of Loch Ness, with Inverness and Fort William just a 45 minute drive away.

Heading towards Fort William you can take a small detour and enjoy the superb views from the cable car as you reach the top of Aonach Mor, walk up Ben Nevis, and in the winter months try your hand at skiing or snowboarding.

In Fort William there is also a bowling alley and soft play area for the children to enjoy or you could take a trip on the ‘Harry Potter’ train to Mallaig.

On the way to enjoy the shops in Inverness you could stop to admire Urquhart Castle or search for Nessie at the Loch Ness Visitor Centre. By taking a small detour at Drumnadrochit you will soon find yourself in Glen Affric, said to be one of the most beautiful Glens in Scotland, with it’s scenic walks and Loch.

Just outside of Inverness is Chanonry Point where you will have a chance to walk along the beach and look for the dolphins who are regular visitors. Beauly is nearby, a lovely wee town with shops and a very interesting Priory.

The drive to the Isle of Skye is (in our opinion) one of the most beautiful in Scotland taking you through the Kintail mountain range. On route, Eileen Donan Castle is definitely worth a visit as is the beautiful coastal village ‘Plockton’.

In the winter months The Highland Club is perfectly placed for your winter ski holiday, just a 30 minute drive to the slopes of Aonach Mor.

Fort Augustus golf course is in the village where you can hire equipment and is suitable for all abilities.

There are also plenty of places to eat, many beautiful walks and all this just a two minute stroll from the seclusion of The Abbey.

Other activities nearby include horse riding (for the novice or experienced rider), cycle paths, distilleries, wildlife safaris, fishing and boat trips on to Loch Ness

You will be spoilt for choice, so if you can’t do everything in the time you have then you’ll just have to plan another holiday with us at the Aonach Mor.
