By chance arrived at the jetty on Lake of Menteith and decided to take the approaching ferry boat to the island. It was only £5.50 after all which included the ferry across and admission to the priory. We were one of few people there and therefore could really appreciate the peace and tranquility of the island and Inchmahome Priory.
It is a 'substantial' ruin so lots to see and easy to visualise what it must have been like when in use. Truly fascinating. The last embrace of the tombstone figures is incredibly romantic and worth the trip across alone.
A real sun trap on a nice day but expect to get wet if it's not. A gift shop and toilets are the limit of the facilities but great place for a picnic.
The people running the ferry and gift shop on behalf of Historic Scotland were friendly and helpful. Lovely place to go if you've a few hours. Quiz trail for children looked interesting and filled with adventure.
