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

First pick a spectacular sunny day. Add some beautiful autumnal colour and a lake that is flat calm. Take a boat ride from the little jetty, 7 minutes later you will be on the beautiful island of Inchmahome. The priory is a splendid ruin. There...More

Entrance charge includes the cost of the ferry. The guide book from the shop is very informative and recommended. When we went a lot of the building was closed off by high mesh fencing, spoiling the opportunity to see and photograph it properly.

We came across this island by chance and it was well worth the 5 minute boat trip. The island was almost deserted ( only 5 other couples ) which really helped us experience the peace and tranquility the priory would have offered in previous times....More

This beautiful place is amazing value for money! £7.50 each for adults inclusive of a return boat trip to the island and entry to the Priory. The island itself is very peaceful and the Priory is interesting to look around. We spent about an hour...More

Take a boat over to the island and walk around the shore to the left of the landing jetty. You will come to the old stone pier. It’s a shallow,sloping shore here so you can paddle or swim. It gets busy in the summer but...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.
