Urquhart Castle is lovely. Although it is a ruin, that just makes it even more beautiful as it stands on the banks of Loch Ness, a lake known for its monster: the Loch Ness Monster, a.k.a. "Nessie."
As my photos suggest, the Castle and Loch Ness are a popular tourist destination. Don't worry, though. You may be surrounded by groups of fellow travelers but as you walk around the Castle, you will still feel like the place is all yours. And the story of Nessie will add to the excitement!
