Easter Events at Loch Ness and The Highland Club

Congratulations to all the runners in the Loch Ness Marathon on Sunday 13th March. Next event is Etape cycle event on 24th April.

Before that we have Easter and here at the Highland Club a most serious sporting event for the young will take place on Easter Sunday, featuring our own amazing Easter Bunny who will lead the Easter Egg Hunt.  Not a game for the faint hearted, hunger drives so Bunny’s advice is to stay lean and mean for this hunting extravaganza.

A thirst for mystery and suspense might bring young and old alike to the Club lounge  later for another “Stranger than Fiction story telling night.  At our last one we heard much about the Fairy Population on the Isle of Skye. Where did the Fairy Flag at Dunvegan Castle really come from?  And would you dare to cross the Fairy Bridge on a horse?  They are said to be terrified by whatever haunts this wonderful old Bridge between two worlds (and across the river of course).

There are apartments available still for what should prove to be a wonderful holiday here at The Highland Club

However, if you can pack up all your cares and woe right now this week or next there is a fantastic offer in one of the most special places here at the Abbey.

The Chapter House is the original meeting place for the Monks and to enter the mezzanine Living area now you could well believer yourself just coming to spectate such an event, with its 10 seater Antique Dining Table  vaulted ceiling and wonderful space. A break right now of more than 4 days or more has a 33% discount. That ‘s full week for £423  for 5 nights for £513 for 7 nights. For 3 or 4 night breaks discount of the website price is 20%.
