IMPORTANT NOTICE; I like to rest-assure you that The Highland Club remains open and we are concentrating on keeping the common areas and flats clean and sanitised. However, in respect to government and science advice due to the Covid-19 situation we have taken the decision to CLOSE the Chapel Pool Complex, Club Lounge and Gym for the safety of our guests. Enjoy your stay at The Scriptorium Retreat and the great open spaces of the former abbey and its grounds, have a safe journey. Stay safe and healthy!More

For most of us, it has been inaccessible apart from fleeting holiday visits.But now there is a way to have all this literally on your doorstep. This could be your special retreat for as long as you like!?YOUR HOME IN THE HIGHLANDS...The SCRIPTORIUM Retreat at TheHighlandClub, Fort Augustus AbbeyA wealth of country pursuits are on hand and, in season, a choice of field sports including rough (walked-up) game shooting, clay pigeon shooting, river or loch fishing and...
