The Priory Hotel

The Priory Hotel is an ideal location

for enjoying the unspoilt beauty of

the North and West Highlands of

Scotland. Run by the same owners

since 1972, the hotel has gained and

retains an excellent reputation for

quality and value for money.

Having undergone major

refurbishment in the 1990’s, the Priory

now enjoys its standing as one of the

premier hotels in the North.

All rooms come with all the features

that will make your stay a real treat.


Day 1: Travel to Beauly for a 4 night stay.

Day 2: Enjoy a memorable trip on one of the

world’s most scenic rail journeys on the Kyle

Line, the ‘Great Highland Railway Journey’.

The train weaves its way through the

Highlands and down to the Kyle of Lochalsh,

close to the Isle of Skye. Crystal clear

lochs mirror the forests and mountains on

this wonderful journey. The views from the

carriage windows are worth the fare alone,

but the experience is thankfully repeated on

the return to Beauly by coach.

Day 3: We head over the Cromarty and

Dornoch Firths to visit Dornoch, a lovely

historic Highland town with a 13th century

cathedral, before continuing onto the

spectacular setting at Dunrobin Castle with

its fairytale spires, turrets and one of Britain’s

oldest continuously inhabited houses.

Day 4: Experience an unforgettable

morning boat cruise on the Moray Firth to

see the world’s most northerly population

of Bottlenose Dolphins, along with other

marine wildlife including seals and otters.

In the afternoon, we visit Inverness, the

‘Capital of the Highlands’, a thriving city with

its historic Old Town, bustling centre and

riverside setting.

Day 5: After breakfast it’s time to say farewell

as we begin our journey home.
