A castle which is based on its bloody history. He played many roles in the battles for the independence of Scotland. The same goes for the Scottish wars against the Jacobits. The first mention of the castle dates back to the 5th century and 11th century, where, according to excavations, there was a fortified settlement. By the end of the 17th century, the castle was abandoned and became a popular place for painters. Today it is the center of Loch Ness. People are waiting to see Loch Ness. There is a large souvenir shop in the visitor center. Although the castle has a rich history. He probably won't get much excited.
