We visited the Wardlaw Mausoleum on our tour of the area. It was fascinating to read the inscriptions on the old stones in the yard and even more interesting to hear the stories of the history of the building. Take a tour in this area...More

This is truly a unique place; steeped in history that reaches well beyond the small town in which it is located. In order to access the mausoleum, you will need to contact the local family that cares for the site. If available, they will give...More

It’s worth taking the time to visit the Wardlaw Mausoleum. Fraser of Lovat history as well as the local area. Interesting architecture and very knowledgeable volunteers. A donation of £3 per person for the upkeep of the building is definitely worth it. But remember the...More

Our guide, Steve McLeish, took us to this small cemetery to see where the real Frasers of Beauly Priory were buried. There's some controversy about where Simon Fraser (Old Fox) was actually buried, and we went to the crypt to see what they have found.

An unscheduled stop here was enlightened by being greeted by Erik. He showed us the mausoleum, told great historical stories and gave a great crypt and bell tower tour. Also encouraged me to read Sarah Fraser's book. Maybe the best part of our UK trip...More

Very interesting, both the graveyard and the crypt. The climbing of the bell tower was a feat but worth it . Needs TLC but hopefully will get it if more Outlander fans visit.

We came here on an Outlander tour and I am so glad we did. Wardlaw Mausoleum is said to be the final resting place of Simon ‘The Fox’ Fraser, the 11th Lord Lovat (Jamie Fraser’s grandfather in Outlander!) We visited the underground crypt that was...More

We came here on an Outlander tour. The mausoleum itself is beautiful. You can climb up the tower, but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like tight spaces. The crypt is, well, interesting. It's small and contains some old, open coffins.

Admittedly, I got the idea to come here from Google. Seems guides were being hired to take them here, since it's the Old Fox of Outlander fame. Drove here and the gate to the graveyard was unlocked, but I knew the Old Fox was inside...More
