No – we are not going to mention it!
The area that encompasses this region (yes we have been a little flexible with boundaries) has one major feature: Loch Ness. In case you never heard of it (!), the loch is the second largest in Scotland being 23 miles long, but the largest by volume. In fact, it contains more water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined!
Along the roadside there are many opportunities to stop to take photos and there are boat trips daily to see the castle, go fishing and enjoy the scenery. Urquhart Castle is a fascinating day out and the video at the start of the tour is very informative. Did you know, for example, the castle was destroyed by its owners, to stop Jacobite forces taking it for themselves.
