Fort Augustus Abbey is, without doubt, one of the finest old buildings in the north of Scotland with a fascinating history, turbulent at times, starting out as a military garrison and, ironically perhaps, later converted into a place of  peace by St Benedictine monks. Recently redeveloped, and renamed The Highland Club, now provides some of the best  luxury self catering holiday rental apartments and cottages in Scotland with one, two and three bedrooms. There are also a great many indoor and outdoor facilities to cater for year round family holidays and secluded hideaways for couples. Now we also feature other top quality cottages and lodges near Loch Ness in our Elite Cottages section.

Fort Augustus Abbey is just 30 minutes drive from Inverness. Excellent road, rail and air links provide easy access. A flight from London takes a little under 90 minutes. The abbey at Fort Augustus is located at the southern end of Loch Ness in twenty acres of beautiful garden grounds on the shoreline of Loch Ness.

Taigh nan Caorach (House of the Sheep)

Situated near the riverbank of the River Tarff, are the 12 cottages of Fort Augustus Abbey where the River Tarff runs into Loch Ness from the hills of Gairbeinn and Geal Charn, the 868th highest peak in the British Isles and the 810th tallest in Scotland. The River Tarff has a diverse fish population including salmon, trout, eels and lamprey.

After what is known as the first Jacobite rising in 1715, the Hanoverian government thought it desirable to select some central spot in the Highlands for the establishment of a garrison, overawe the clans that had originated the rebellion. The most suitable place seemed to be the little Highland village of Kilchuimen, standing at the head of Loch Ness. It was the middle point of the great Glen of Albyn, and commanded the only available roads and passes in that part of the country.

a regular fort was eventually built by Marshal Wade in 1729 upon a peninsula beyond the village, having the Oich River on its NW side, the Tarff on the SE, and the deep waters of the loch in front. It was capable of accommodating 300 men.

The four blocks of buildings stood around a square of some 100 feet in extent. There was a bastion at each angle mounting twelve six-pounders. A ditch, covert-way and glacis completed its defences. General Wade named his fort after William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, youngest son of George I.

Cottage 8, Taighn nan Caorach (House of the Sheep is a 2-bedroom cottage with wood burning stove and gas central heating and has been recently re-decorated to an excellent standard.

Strictly for over 12-year-old guests, Taigh nan Caorach is a pet friendly cottage where full week bookings include a hamper of Scottish products.
