A regular service to the North, South, East, and West is provided by the Far North railway line, which is located only five miles west of the Inverness train station in the Highland area settlement of Beauly. The capital of Highlands and the main business and commercial hub is Inverness, which also boasts excellent air, rail, and road connections to the South and other parts of the world. Inverness Airport also offers frequent daily flights to London and other UK cities.

A short drive from the village are some of Scotland's most stunning highlands and glens, including the well-known Glen Affric, Strathpeffer, Strath Conon, and Glen Cannich. The village is a great base for people interested in hiking, biking, or rock climbing.

The glen's beginning is among the remote, naked Kintail mountains, which are rugged and mountainous. At the base of the tallest mountains north of the Great Glen, further down the river, sits the stunning Loch Affric. A National Nature Reserve, the central section of the Glen is wonderfully forested with Scots Pine and the final pockets of the original, prehistoric Caledonian Forest.

There are numerous activities in and around Beauly, including Cnoc-na-rath, the river route, a riverside walk to the Priory, and the Beauly Angling Club. According to reports, Mary Queen of Scots stated, "What a beautiful place," which is where the name Beauly actually originates from. In the centre of town, among a supermarket, bakeries, eateries, cafes, hotels, and a variety of specialty shops, are the remnants of a priory from the thirteenth century. Mary, Queen of Scots, travelled through the Highlands to Easter Ross in the summer of 1564. Before approaching Dingwall, the Earldom of Ross's capital, she paused at Beauly Priory.

Mary is said to have been moved by the priory's beauty, which was enhanced by a lovely orchard. She is claimed to have responded, "Oui, c'est un beau lieu" (Yes, it is a beautiful spot), making fun of the Priory's name, Bello Loco, which translates to "beautiful place" in Latin. Throughout her travels, Mary typically stayed at monasteries since they possessed the space, amenities, and services required for royal guests.

 A member of the Bisset family, who were the lords of the Aird to the west of Inverness, constructed Beauly Priory around 1230. Later, it came under the protection of the Frasers of Lovat, who added several structures to it. The priory saw a renaissance towards the end of the Middle Ages under the direction of Robert Reid, abbot of Kinloss; at that time, it had switched its allegiance from the Valliscaulian to the Cistercian order.

The nearby community of Muir of Ord offers a variety of local services, including a general shop, butcher, baker, G.P. office, chemist, and food establishments.
The first two grades are taught in Tarradale Primary and Dingwall Academy, respectively. Access to the larger facilities and amenities is made simple by the commuter train and frequent bus services that go to Inverness and Dingwall. 25 more golf courses, including four of the greatest, are within driving distance, including the naturally undulating Aigas Golf Course, Royal Dornoch, Nairn, and Spey Valley.
