Beauly Priory

This illustration depicts the ruins of Beauly Priory. It is taken from Angus J Beaton's 'Illustrated Guide to Fortrose and Vicinity, with an appendix on the Antiquities of the Black Isle', published in Inverness in 1885. Beauly Priory was founded around 1230 by Sir John Bisset for the French Valliscaulian order of monks. This order also had houses at Ardchattan in Argyll and Pluscarden in Moray. The Priory was extended and altered between the 14th and 16th centuries but fell into decay after the Reformation (1560) and the dissolution of the monasteries
