Loch Ness is a large, deep freshwater loch (Scottish word for lake or fiord) in the Scottish Highlands spanning approximately 37 km south west of Inverness. Its surface is 15.8m above sea level and is the largest lake in Scotland by volume. Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster is just one of the many myths and legends to be discovered in this particular beautiful part of Scotland. This is indeed a very relaxing place to be in, more so if you like the outdoors, explore and enjoy the breathtaking landscape.
Urquhart Castle is one of the most picturesque landmarks in Scotland. Although in ruins due to warfare and the passing of time, it is still a magnificient iconic sight, perched on the banks of Loch Ness, beside the village of Drumnadrochit. It is said to be one of the main sites for the sighting of Nessie.
We didn't enter the castle, so could only managed to snap this from afar.
See the bridge in the background........ we had to cross that to go to the Isle of Skye. If you would like to see what's at Isle of Skye, please feel free to follow me in my future posts. Till then......
