The Loch Ness
Our little hunt for Nessy – The Loch Ness Monster begun as we drove into the Inverness. Although initially we felt that there can’t be anything special about an ordinary lake, it wasn’t long before we both fell in love with the Loch Ness and it’s surroundings. The stunning views and almost cinematic ride along the lake made us immediately change our mind about this beautiful place.
The Urquhart Castle
Our first longer stop, right after every possible lay-by with a lake view 🙂 was the Urquhart Castle. It is a real shame that this magnificent structure was destroyed in 1692. Even now, while walking around what is left of the castle, I can just imagine what it was like living there. Apart from the whole war thing 😉 it must have been wonderful to wake up every morning with this amazing view from almost all windows of your tower. From plans of the whole castle situated on information boards I noticed that it used to be much bigger than what we can see now or at least it looked much larger. Oh how much I would give to see this castle in all it’s glory!
The Urquhart Castle is situated right by the Loch Ness and so I am sure the residents as well as visitors used to start their hunt for the Loch Ness Monster from here.
We have spent one day exploring the Loch Ness and the Inverness town and right after that, we have started our journey to the Scottish Highlands.
