Customer Reviews of Glen View, Loch Ness - Sleeps 6
1st comment: The property was very nice & well equipped. We all enjoyed our atay very much. April 2012.
2nd comment: A lovely apartment in a fantastic location. Ideal for touring west highlands. Good local places to eat. April 2011.
3rd comment: This magical location was a wonderful starting point for our excursions in the beautiful Scottish nature! April 2011.
4th comment: Very modern and well equipped. It was really good that they supplied dishwasher tablets, tea towels, bath towels etc. One thing that you do need to remember is soap for the sinks. The communal games room with full size snooker table is worth a look. The chap who let us in was very helpful. We had a bit of trouble finding the entrance as the actual abbey has several entrances - you need to go to the left around the side of the building and park by the clock tower. I would definitely go back here again - the flat was fab and the scenery was amazing. March 2011.
5th comment: The accommodation was clean and comfortable and as advertised. Sept 2010.
6th comment: Good quality accommodation, very clean, fantastic location. Aug 2010.
7th comment: Well placed in the town of Fort Augustus. Good for touring the area. Views of Loch Ness were spectacular. June 2010.
8th comment: We used the facility as a hub for our touring, such as going to Inverness, Isle of Skye, and touring of Scotch distilleries. Was very convenient for general touring of the Highlands via car. The main living room was beautiful and suited our needs. We did cook in on several evenings and purchased fresh fish in Inverness for our meals. Great place to take long walks and also to view the boats being loaded on the locks. The pub food was so-so. Sept 2009.
9th comment: Great property which comfortably sleeps six. The flat was spotless, with all the equipment needed for our stay. Its also a lovely old building. Would use this flat again without doubt. Feb 2009.
10th comment: Fantastic location and stunning views with all the benefits of a modern apartment. Wonderful experience. Sept 2008.
