Gladsheim (meaning ‘place of joy’ in old Norse), offers the perfect romantic retreat with everything including the luxurious four poster bed.
A first-choice top quality romantic holiday is certainly what you get in Gladsheim. Additionally, it is difficult to rival its location in the Highlands, just yards from the shore of Loch Ness.
This first-floor, one bedroom self-catering apartment is in the Raven Wing. Formerly the science block of the Fort Augustus Abbey Boys School, it has also seen some fantastic renovations. Gladsheim features modern comforts and conveniences within the historic setting of the abbey and its grounds.
Furthermore, Gladsheim is well equipped and stylishly decorated in a contemporary style, by Anta.
Gladsheim is accessed up one flight of stairs so consequently has lovely views across the Abbey grounds, and offers a real sense of peace and intimacy. Of course you benefit from all the facilities Highland Club Scotland has to offer. It makes an ideal choice for a couple wishing to explore the area around Loch Ness or just snuggle down in romantic luxury.
