Scotland Day 4 (Eilean Donan and Urquhart Castles)

Hello, everyone.

It was great sadness that we left the Isle of Skye on Wednesday to continue our trip through Scotland.  I would love to spend a year wandering through this stunning landscape. But onwards to new adventures! 

On the fourth day of our trip we headed toward Inverness. (All of the photos from day four can be found here). Along the way we stopped at Eilean Donan Castle, situated where three lochs meet (Loch Duich, Loch Alsh, and Loch Long). The original castle was constructed in the thirteenth century, but has been restored several times.

I scoped out the area on Google maps before our trip and picked out a place to stop and take some photographs.  Apparently, I had the right idea, because my spot was very popular.

We also made a stop at the ruins of Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness.  (Sadly, no sea monster sightings).

We made it to Inverness in the early evening. After checking in at our guest house (Lynver Guest House) we explored down along the River Ness.

Inverness is another town were you need dinner reservations.  We wandered around a bit before discovering Shapla Indian Restaurant just off Bridge Street. We really lucked out and had a fabulous dinner.
