Restoration of building next to Beauly Priory

This photograph shows buildings at the east end of the main square in the village of Beauly. Beauly is situated 12 miles west of Inverness at the mouth of the River Beauly. The village grew up around Beauly Priory, which was founded around 1230 for monks belonging to the French Valliscaulian order. The modern-day Square was laid out in the 1840s by the Frasers of Lovat.

The name 'Beauly' is derived from the French 'beau lieu', or 'beautiful place'. In 1564, Mary, Queen of Scots stayed at the priory while travelling in the Highlands. According to popular belief, the name came from a comment she made during her visit.
