Interesting 15 min free visit, share some of the history of the local area. Within town square so convenient as part of a stop off to stretch the legs.

Quite remarkable remains of the Beauly priory and graveyard. Worth driving until Beauly to have a look! Beautiful sights of the firth too!

Located in the village of Beauty, you will find a ruined church of a Valliscaulian Priory, founded in 1230. It became a Cistercian home around 1510. After the Reformation the priority fell into disuse, it is said that stone was carted off for use in...More

We were staying near Beauly so stopped by to visit this historical site. A few plaques throughout tell you a bit of what you’re looking at. Some sections are cordoned off with chain link fence which detracts a bit from the vibe, but definitely worth...More
