As you drive through Scotland, you’ll be enchanted by the fairytale castles. A mile or two down the road from Bearnock, on the banks of the infamous Loch Ness, are the ruins of Urquhart Castle. Venture a little further to Inverness, where the Castle Viewpoint offers fabulous 360-degree views of the Highland Capital and many of the famous landmarks in the surrounding area.
