Urquhart Castle
Urquhart Castle
Over the five centuries when this was a major castle to be reckoned with, these walls have seen more than their share of war and bloodshed. From its construction in the 13th century until it was partly blown up in 1692, it changed hands many times. The visitor centre by the A82, above the castle, has a good audio-visual programme about its history. See LinkExternal link for information.
