Glenlivet sits at the top of the Old School, a rather architecturally unique part of the Abbey.
Here, you can touch, see and appreciate rather special and original internal features that make Glenlivet an excellent choice in Loch Ness holiday accommodation. .
The Anta furnishings and decor complement this perfectly, making much of the full height Gothic windows and arch timber beams.
During the days of the Abbey, the top of the Old School was the orginal location of the boys’ dorms. Later, due to the Abbey’s growth in numbers the dorms would move to the Monastery and the the top of the school. As a result, Glenlivet and other apartments were now additional classrooms!
Within the twenty acres of grounds and at the water’s edge is the Boathouse restaurant. It is also only a few minutes’ walk away from the centre of Fort Augustus village with its shops, pubs and walks which will meet your everyday needs.
The Highland Club facilities are conveniently available to guests during their stay and at no additional cost.
These include heated, indoor swimming pool, tennis court and large life size chess in the Cloister Gardens. There is also the children’s adventure playground, BBQ area, Club Lounge with full size snooker table and free WiFi. Additionally, in the Atrium you will find Ping Pong while in the Monastery Gardens you can enjoy a game of boules or croquet.
Lawn and adventure activities include clay pigeon shooting and archery. When you venture outside of the Abbey you can even arrange whitewater rafting and canoeing. Contact Ian MacKinnon of Monster Activities for more information.
Trout fishing is also available from the grounds of the Abbey and the nine-hole Fort Augustus golf course is only five minutes away.
All this makes Glenlivet the perfect setting for your relaxing holiday and to explore the surrounding countryside.
