Travel out of Inverness for only 30 minutes by car along the A82 towards Drumnadrocit and you will find Urquhart Castle. The castle has a truly iconic setting high on a promontory overlooking Loch Ness with views both up and down the loch. You can learn of the troubled history, see a good number of relics from the past, get a feel for what it would have been like to live there so many years ago. You can wonder at the views from the Battlements on the Grant Tower, visit the Great Hall or take a peep into the little prison cell. Don’t miss out though on the Café where you can get good food and a chance to sit in comfort as well as a great view of the hills of the Great Glen, Loch Ness and the castle ruins.
