  • Urquhart Castle is a ruined castle that is situated on a headland overlooking Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It remains an impressive sight despite being in ruins as it was once one of Scotland’s largest castles.

    Originally built in the 13th century it fell into ruin after it was abandoned in the 17th century. It figured prominently during the Scottish Wars of Independence in the 14th century and has quite a bloody past.

    Today, the castle is a popular attraction for visitors. Open throughout the year, the castle has a visitor centre with an exhibition of Urquhart’s history, as well as all facilities, a café, gift shop and plentiful parking. More information can be found here: www.historic-scotland.gov.uk
