...when arriving at The Highland Club, the former St. Benedict's Abbey at the shores of Loch Ness...you enter your holiday retreat at the Moat House through its marvelous entrance ...peacefulness starts whilst you follow the cloisters with view into the Cloister Gardens to enter directly into...

The SCRIPTORIUM -the secret 'place for writing' of a monastery

... which forms the very special framework of a unique & detached one-bedroom-apartment on 2 floors with the original high vaulted ceilings, gothic archways & mighty stone pillars and beautiful stained-glass windows!

Its the chapel-like looking building connecting the cloisters with the ABBEY CHURCH... on the picture right you see it in front of the Monastery...

...and now have a stroll through the abbey & towards your retreat

...and finally explore the SCRIPTORIUM apartment, your retreat!!!

 The Scriptorium-Apartment you will enter from the hall of the scriptorium-building with its marvelous ancient tiled floor...the vestibule under a vaulted ceiling leads you into

- the bathroom with bath tub & shower over and heated towel rail

- the lounge with dining area and integrated kitchen including gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, washer-dryer, fridge with icebox, microwave...it benefits of tall windows right into the ceiling giving plenty light & lovely views towards the Abbey Church, Moat House & into the old trees of the west part of the abbey grounds

- the staircase and from there to the bedroom with king-size double bed -suiting easily an abbot- under the original high ceiling, a sky light to watch stars & clouds from your bed and the special atmosphere created by stained-glass windows with symbols of the past home of monks...

Adding to the special feeling of the apartment are the hectagonal shape of the building towards the west, vaulted ceilings & archways, comfy tub-chairs & sofa, some ancient chapel chairs & the matching table telling plenty stories of the past ... much more for you to explore by yourself ... and to feel at home!

TV with integrated DVD/CD-player, WiFi-internet-access and a vintage radio helps to enjoy each and every minute at the SCRIPTORIUM and to relax.
