Beauly Priory - 7

The Priory is relatively small and simple - but it is noble simplicity, not plainness, as this photo clearly shows.

The church, whose ruins still stand, was only part of a complex that included a cloister to its south, complete with east and south ranges accommodating the monks and a west range providing the prior's lodging. The standing south wall of the church shows signs of earlier roof lines, indicating how the rest of the priory was connected to it.
