Urquhart Castle

Urquhart Castle
Urquhart Castle sits beside Loch Ness in Scotland between Fort William and Inverness.
It is close to the village of Drumnadrochit.
The earliest history of the castle may begin in the time of St. Columba in the 6th century,
The results of a radiocarbon test obtained by the late Professor Leslie Alcock in his 1983 excavations within the castle was in the range 460-660 AD.
Though extensively ruined, it was in its day one of the largest strongholds of medieval Scotland, and remains an impressive structure, splendidly situated on a headland overlooking Loch Ness.
It is also near the Castle where the majority of Nessie Loch Ness Monster sightings occur.
