This morning, we departed our Inverness lodgings and drove south for about 30 mins through Drumnadrochit to Castle Urquhart on the banks of Loch Ness. This is probably the best location for viewing the Loch  The castle has an illustrious history being built on a site which has been fortified from at least the time of the Picts, about 1500 years ago. In medieval times the castle was under royal ownership but was transferred to the Grants, blown up in the 18th century and finally conveyed to Government ownership in the early 19th century. The ruined castle is of substance in its own right but attracts huge volumes of visitors due to its pre-eminent location for viewing the famous loch with its mythical monster connections. Aided by bright sunshine and blue skies we were able to avail of good photo opportunities as per links below.
