Beauly Priory **

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>

Description:

Beauly Priory was founded around 1230 by monks of the Valliscaulian order. Invited by the lord, Sir John Bisset they came from their mother house in Burgundy, in France, and settled beside the Beauly River, at the place where it enters the Beauly Firth. Their successors lived for the next 300 years, until the Protestant Reformation of 1560 brought their cloistered and contemplative life to an abrupt end. Today their legacy lives on, in their pretty, tree-fringed abbey church, roofless but otherwise largely intact.
