This is a picture of Urquhart Castle on the shores of Loch Ness in Scotland.
When I was in my early 20’s, I was fortunate enough to visit this lovely place in early March. There was still light snow falling on the day that I hiked the 2.5 miles from the nearest town up to the castle.
For a small entrance fee, I was able to climb all over and Explore the ruins of this beautiful castle on the shoreline.
I never did see “Nessie” on that trip, but I sure did see a lot of stuffed versions in the gift shop of the small town I stayed in. It was a wonderful place to visit and the people were some of the most friendly I had ever met.
It’s one of my favorite memories.
