Kirsty Owen's official guide to Urquhart Castle. The castle overlooks Loch Ness and is linked to Pictish history. It was also a strategic castle during the Wars of Independence.
The castle's long history goes back as far as the 6th century and is summarised in a clear, engaging way throughout the guidebook.
However, the castle proper was built in 1230 by the Durward family. It's a popular and well-preserved site, open to explore. Visit and revisit the castle through this official souvenir guide.
