The weather forecast for Friday was not good - the morning promised very high winds and by two o’clock in the afternoon rain was forecast - so we decided to do our planned “outside” tourist attraction first and visit the inside attraction after that.
We drove down the side of Loch Ness to the site of Urquhart Castle, the castle ruins that frequently appear in documentaries about the Loch Ness Monster. Before we left the visitor centre we watched ...
