In the charming village of Beauly stand the remains of Beauly Priory, founded in 1230 by an order of Valllisculian monks. The Priory later became the burial place of the Mackenzies of Kintail. In 1571 there were four monks and a Prior in the house but by 1633 the church was 'wholly decayed'. It is believed that Cromwell demolished the building to provide materials for his fort in Inverness. In 1901 the North Transept was restored and the ruin is now maintained by Historic Scotland.
