Today, was the final day of our Scotland tour. Weather was mixed with intermittent sunshine and rain showers.

We departed our lodgings near Evanton¬†and then proceeded south along the bank¬†of the Cromarty¬†Firth through Dingwall to the spa town of Strathpeffer, although we did not stop here. Next, on to Marybank, Muir of Ord and our first stop at Beauly, a few miles west of Inverness. Interestingly, Beauly is one of the few places in Scotland with a name derived from French, in this case beau lieu¬†or ‘fine place’. The French connection dates back to the 13th century when a cadre of monks from Burgundy built¬† a-now ruined-priory. Today, Beauly¬†remains an attractive¬†and well-kept¬†village with many floral decorations, hotels and shops to attract visitors. At Beauly we visited the Priory ruins.
