Moody Loch Ness, the ancient Caledonian Forest of Glen Affric, spectacular waterfalls and a land steeped in history. At the centre of this land of outstanding natural beauty lies Drumnadrochit, the premier location for exploring the Highlands. Urquhart witnessed considerable conflict throughout its 500 years as a medieval fortress and its history from the 13th to 17th centuries was particularly bloody. Following Edward I’s invasion, it fell into English hands and was then reclaimed and lost again. In the 14th century, it figured prominently in the Scots’ struggle for independence and came under the control of Robert the Bruce after he became King of Scots.
