“Wow what an amazing find”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed here for a week mid September 2016.
As soon as we pulled up in the drive it just felt right, stunning open surrounding views and had a very open feel.
We were greeted by Chris who took us up to the apartment. It had the wow factor as soon as we walked in and has been renovated and restored in a beautiful way.
Chris showed us round and we immediately felt at home. It had all the amenities you would want really giving it a homely and home from home feel.
It was well furnished and airy and very clean.
We found the bedroom luxurious and the decor modern and tasteful.
We later met Felicity who had taken time to get us some DVDs and gave us some local knowledge that we really appreciated.
There is a blue information book with things to do that Chris and Felicity have put together, we did a few recommended trips and so glad we did.
Fort Augutus is great with plenty of pubs and eateries also a local landis that was very handy.
All in all we would both recommend this place 100%
lovely hosts in a beautiful renovated convent with everything you would need.
A great base for travelling the stunning highlands.

“Wonderful relaxing setting”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Felicity was waiting for us to arrive off the Inverness bus and she greeted us as we approached the Convent. A quick tour of the building was followed by showing us where things were, how things worked etc and what to do in the village.
She was always available and she even went out of our way to find us a bus to Fort William to climb Ben Nevis. A lovely lady with a great place at a reasonable price compared to others around Loch Ness.

Thank you for your kind comments, it was lovely to meet you both. Unfortunately the winter timetable for the buses had just begun so there were fewer running than in the summer. We do recommend a car for the best way of seeing our spectacular scenery and we are always happy to advise on routes. Felicity & Chris

“Home away from Home, Chris & Felicity have created apartments that make you feel instantly 'at home'”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our 3 night stay in The Old Convent rated as one of the best places we stayed during our month in Ireland & Scotland. Chris & Felicity have renovated and decorated to a very high standard, there was not one thing that we would say was missing in the apartment. Everything you could possibly need was available and everything from the light fittings to Felicity's original art on the walls created a sense of being in your own home. Chris's rundown on the renovations so far was of great interest and if you stay at the Old Convent without any plans of 'what to do' Felicity's extensive and passionate knowledge of everything in the immediate area will soon have you filling in every spare moment. Great job guys!!!

“Superb self catered accommodation in great location.”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Absolutely loved staying at No. 3 The Old Convent. It had everything you could possibly need during your stay and I'm sure that if you needed anything extra, Felicity and Chris would have sorted this out for you because they are great hosts. They know the area so well and can advise about walks and days out. The apartment is all done to a fantastic standard - it felt really quite luxurious! Especially the shower which is amazing!
The location of the accommodation gives you access to so much of the Highlands in a day trip, it really is brilliant.
Thank you for a lovely stay and will see you again.
