“OLD HISTORIC SITE- QUITE SMALL BUT WORTH A STOP OFF”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Visited this site which is in ruins, it is quite small but worth having a look and seeing the historic board explaining the Priory and its histroy.

You have to imagine it in its heyday, but thats the fun, there are graves in and around the Priory so some respect should be given due to being an old cemetery as well

Worth a stop off as you drive through Beauly

“Chef has got his spark back, Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Nice to see the huge improvement since my last visit in August. Food was well presented and tasted great. It was the best meal I have tasted in a while. I hope they keep the standard high and well return to try the new menu. Well worth a visit or a second chance. You shouldnt be disappointed.

“Beauly Village, Priory, Tartan Shop and Deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This is a lovely village with a beautiful priory which is definitely worth a visit. From the beautiful old tree at the gate entrance, to the red stone ruins, it just oozes history. Parking is free all along the main road and there are numerous gift shops dotted along the main street. The opposite end of the street from the priory is a tartan shop where you step back in time and is a must to visit. Add to this a Deli to die for which not only sells wonderful local produce and Scottish fayre but has a whole range of meals and hot drinks on offer that make it hard to choose - Beauly may be small but is has so much to recommend it and is not to be missed.

“A proper Scottish high tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Like: Small local hotel, warm welcome, good food Can highly recommend their high tea which is a bit of a family treat when I go home to visit. What' a Scottish high tea. A main course (fish and chips, gammon, liver and onions that kind of thing, with tea to drink, and followed by scones, shortbread, and other fancy cakes. Delicious!

Dislike: Make sure you ask for a seat in the main part of the restaurant near the fire, we once got put out the back in a dark and dismal corner behind the fish tank. It rather spoiled the evening as well as being cold!
