Drumnadrochit

This photograph shows a spring-time floral display beside the Urquhart Castle feature in the centre of the village of Drumnadrochit. Drumnadrochit won the 'Beautiful Scotland in Bloom, Small Village Trophy' in 1997 and 2002.

The village is situated at the head of Urquhart Bay, on the western shores of Loch Ness. From the mid-nineteenth century onwards, steamers called in at nearby Temple Pier to off-load tourists visiting the area. Today, Drumnadrochit is still a favourite spot for tourists, especially those interested in the Loch Ness Monster. For walkers, the 'Great Glen Way', a 73-mile long-distance path from Fort William to Inverness, passes through Drumnadrochit.
