Escorted Rail Tours to Beauly
A pretty town named by Mary, Queen of Scots
Beauly was apparently given its name by Mary, Queen of Scots, when she stayed in the town in the early 1560s. Having spent most of her childhood in France, the Scottish queen was fluent in French, and commented to her host, "C'est un beau lieu", meaning "It's a beautiful place". Surrounded by the dramatic scenery of the Highlands, and set on the banks of the River Beauly, the charming town still merits its 'beautiful' reputation today.
