Urquart Castle, Loch Ness Side, Scotland

Castle Urquhart stands on a rocky promontary on the north shore of Loch Ness. As soon as you get here you cant help thinking, People were almost certainly here at least 4000 years ago. At nearby Corrimony is a burial cairn dating from about 2000 BC. However, although some evidence has been found of a fort on this promontory dating from the Iron Age, and also remains from Pictish times, earliest written records for the existence of a castle date from the 1200's.
