What people are saying:

Traveling to England, this stop goes to the Loch Ness region in the Scottish Highlands. This ancient castle style is located in the middle of Loch Ness. It is one of the largest castles in Scotland and a famous attraction in the Scottish Highlands. This castle was built around 1600. The current damaged castle was mainly caused by the bombing of the defenders themselves in order to prevent it from being occupied by the Jacobites in 1691. I heard that the ruins below are from 580 AD. A fortress site, this castle overlooks Urquhart Bay.

    Having a laugh with the price.

    For the size of the place it’s not worth £9.50 each to get in. Feels like a tourist trap. Can walk round in about ten minutes. Can view the lot from the main road or up the hills. Save your cash and s...
