Inchmahome Priory is a great attraction for anyone visiting this part of Scotland. As it's on an island there will be few other visitors when you're there. You get to the island by a small boat that runs regularly. I'd recommend getting there at opening...More

Far from the madding crowd, Inchmahome Priory is so beautiful and tranquil. The short ferry journey offers some differing perspectives but the setting of the Priory itself is superb.

It is worth taking the short boat trip across to the island where you can see the ruined Priory and some amazing very old twisted trees. I was lucky enough to be there when the woods were full of bluebells. Very peaceful and relaxing place...More

What a great place. The boat trip over to the island takes less than 10 minutes and all you have to do is turn the board on the jetty to call the boat. The staff are very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The island...More

I am pretty sure dogs are welcome on the island as long as they are kept on a lead. I would give them a call before heading off just to make sure though.
