About The Old Convent ApartmentsNo.1 The Old Convent is a very spacious one bedroom ground floor apartment full of character, some original features plus a bit of quirkiness. No.3 is a first floor one bedroom apartment with lovely views all round, renovated with style but adding a very homely feel. No.4 is a first floor two bedroom apartment, both bedrooms upstairs. Both No.1 and No.4 have wood burning stoves for those cosy nights in. All the apartments have been renovated to a very high standard adding modern touches like central heating and double glazing! They are all very comfortable and spacious with all the facilities you could possibly need.
The Old Convent was originally built as a church by Lord Lovat in 1842 and known as St.Peters chapel. In 1888 it was then offered to ‘The Sister’s of Mercy’ from Elgin to use as a school and their convent, during their short occupation it was known as St.Columba’s convent. After extensive renovations were completed in March 1892 for a new order of nun’s, it was renamed St Scholastica’s Priory until 1922 when the remaining nun’s were moved to Holm Eden Abbey. Since then many people have lived in the convent including a few let’s say…’colourful’ characters!
Local AreaFort Augustus is the perfect place to relax with a short walk to the center of the village where you can find grocery shops, butcher, post office, ATM, petrol station and several pubs and restaurants. You can take a boat trip up Loch Ness or simply chill on the canal side watching the boats negotiate the locks!
