Urquhart Castle
Situated in a stunning location on the north side of Loch Ness, this castle had a turbulent history for around 500 years from the 1200s.

It changed hands many times, between the English and Scots around the early 14th century, the Scottish Crown and the MacDonald Lords of the Isles in the 15th and 16th centuries, and finally in the late 17th century when a garrison loyal to the protestant monarchy of William & Mary held off a larger Jacobite force. When the last soldiers left in 1692 they blew up parts of the castle to prevent any further use.

The castle is now owned by The National Trust for Scotland and is under the care of Historic Scotland.

A visitor centre, from which there is a stunning view of the castle, was constructed in 2002 and houses a shop, café and audio visual theatre.
