For a family holiday near the famous and mysterious Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, Gruinyards at the Highland Club is the perfect choice!

Gruinyards is the “look-out on Loch Ness”, a stunning top floor two-bedroom apartment in the old Monastery building with spectacular Loch views from anywhere. It has beautiful furnishings and every convenience so it makes a truly memorable self-catering holiday.

It is unique in having windows and views on three sides so gets the sun all day long. This makes it fantastic for lounging around and relaxing if you have probably done enough for the day.

This beautiful apartment boasts a large and beautiful bright and airy living-dining room complete with a full kitchen. There is also an elegant, spacious master bedroom and wonderful en-suite bathroom with a roll-top bath. From here you can even enjoy the views over Borlum Hill.
