One of Scotland's most photogenic castles and one of the world's most famous monsters make awesome Loch Ness a must on any visit to the Highlands.
Castle Urquhart was blown up in 1692 to prevent it falling into Jacobite hands; what's left is a classic romantic ruin jutting out into the loch. Loch Ness is 23 miles long and very, very deep - there's plenty of room for a monster.
