Urquhart Castle is one of Scotland’s best-known sites, an instantly recognizable symbol of the Highlands: its shattered tower rises high over Loch Ness. It, and the Great Glen on which it stands, also played a large role in the country’s history. Using physical evidence found on the grounds, this colorful and comprehensive guide traces the development of castle and glen, from the Pictish occupation to the 19th century arrival of industry. There’s even information on the Loch’s famed monster!
