Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, Scotland
Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness

Loch Ness's castle; another picture postcard beauty, and heavily visited; there's a controversy now about proposals to build a huge bus and car park and visitor center (i.e. fast food); if you object, sign the petition on the Internet (search on Urquhart), if you think it will do any good; as far as I'm concerned, Loch Ness might as well be sold to Walt Disney and themed up 'properly'--it's not a place I recommend any more (though it was great in 1975 when my brother and I were able just to park by the roadside and camp out on the beach after attending a great Ceilidh (sp?) up the road--there were weird slurping noises along the shore that night too, but probably just waves, not Nessie).
