Beauly Boer War Memorial

My previous posts on Beauly are here and here. I didn’t see a memorial to the World Wars of the twentieth century when I was there but I have since found out it’s situated on a hill to the south of the town. Maybe next time I’m up that way.

However in the centre of the town is a large memorial, “Erected by the Lovat tenantry and fuears… to commemorate the raising of the Lovat Scouts by Simon Joseph, 6th Lord Lovat….” (For full wording click on picture to where it can be enlarged.) It is also inscribed “Cape Colony” in the lower rectangle.

Beauly Priory

Beauly in Inverness-shire (see three posts ago) is home to the ruins of a mediƦval Priory and apparently French monks who lived there are responsible for Beauly’s name (from beau lieu, beautiful place.)

Shop in Beauly, Hint of Art Deco

Very minor deco this, but it has a flat roof and rule of three in the windows/doors – and then there are the roof edges.

Beauly is in the county of Inverness, about ten miles west of Inverness itself.

I must admit I hadn’t expected to see even a hint of deco but here it is:-
