Beautiful old ruins just off the town square. Atmospheric and peaceful old ruined abbey. Whilst inside the heavens opened but alas there was no roof.

There is a lot of history in this small monument. Well worth a small side trip to see the Priory and learn about its past.

There is something so peaceful and thoughtful about walking through ruins. Seeing the Beauly Priory allowed me to visualize the tremendous craftsmanship required to build these structures in a pre-modern era. If you are a Ken Follet fan of his Pillars of Earth then this...More
