“Ruin”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Weather was pretty poor and despite its historical interest it was lacking in information. Do not need to visit again.

“Hidden History”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Hidden away in a corner of Beauly square this ancient priory is a small but perfect treat. Lots of old headstones to look at and well preserved ruins. Not much in quantity but a lot in quality. Would recommend for the more senior age group and some good photographic chances.

“Calm and peaceful”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

If you marvel at buildings which have been around for 500 + years, magnificent trees, reading gravestones this is an OK place for a wander on a warm day. Found a new name - Kennethina on one stone.

“Gorgeous! Stepping Back in Time!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

I absolutely adored this priory. The little town of Beauly was sweet and charming, but the priory made my day. The sun was out, the birds were hopping along headstones, and it was like this quiet tranquil haven. It was so amazing to see the old architecture and read about its history, and the royal visitors it attracted! I could've spent hours examining the details of the priory and the tombs and graves. A must-see if you are in the area.

“Lovely old ruins and old trees on the grounds.”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a classic old ruin...like many you will find around the UK. Nicely preserved. Check out the short walk along the river and the local bakery for yummy goodies.
