The clubroom with free WiFi, a full size snooker table and other table games is a great meeting place for friends and families.

The building was formerly part of the old boys school which was run by St Benedict monks in days when the Highland Club was an abbey. Prior to that it was a military fort built by the English military in the days of the Jacobites. Many of the original military and monastic features can still be seen around the grounds and in the buildings now restored.
