Photo Corner: Urquhart Castle, Scotland
This photo is of Urquhart castle, near Loch Ness. After a long day of bus ride from Edinburgh into the Scottish highlands, I arrived at Urquhart castle in the mid-afternoon. Once one of the largest castles in Scotland, Urquhart Castle suffered a long and bloody history and, today, is largely in ruins. As I stood in the castle tower, overlooking Loch Ness, I paused in a brief moment of silence, hoping to catch a glimpse of the mysterious Loch Ness monster. Although no monster surfaced, I stood amazed by the stunning scenery in the Scottish highlands.
