Flaunting a majestic history of 1000 years, Urquhart Castle will amaze you at its very first glimpse. The present site dates back to 13th and 14th century and the castle played an important role in the War of Scottish Independence. Held as royal castle and raided on several occasions, the Castle was partially destroyed in the 17th century to prevent its use by the Jacobite forces.
Its one of the largest and one of the most-visited castles in Scotland and the war tales surrounding it give you goosebumps!
Climb the Grant tower and you will be stunned by the panoramic view of the Loch Ness.
