Sitting on the ground floor of the St Benedict’s Abbey is Lochside Library. It is one in a row of four properties facing the world famous Loch Ness.
Lochside Library is a prominent part of the Abbey’s history here; its name describes it perfectly because before the renovation works it was part of the library which famously housed a register signed by Mary Queen of Scots; a rather unique claim to fame! Also, it has access directly to the Cloister Corridors; so you can step from one beautiful area to another through the original double solid oak doors.
Since its renovation, Lochside Library has only been in occasional private use so retains its high quality finishings, furnishings and freshness; although the new owners of Lochside Library have already been adding their unique taste to this quality high end apartment.
From the beautiful living room you have a stunning view of the Loch across the Monastery Gardens. You can also see the Caledonian Canal and the River Oich running into the Loch giving as perfect a daytime view as you could want! It doesn’t end there though as the mezzanine master bedroom offers the same glorious view. Furthermore, the windows stretch up to its four metre high ceiling enhancing the feeling of spaciouness in this sizable apartment.
The gas central heating system ensures adequate heating and cosiness.
