The historic village of Beauly is home to a good range of small shops including a couple of supermarkets, and various cafes and restaurants and the village centres around the pretty square which is just a short walk from the property. During the summer months the village has a well deserved reputation for its floral displays, and has been a previous winner of the Large Village in Bloom Competition for the whole of the UK. For eating out a couple of popular choices are the Corner on the Square, a small café with an excellent delicatessen, and the Priory Hotel with its restaurant.
