Main Street, Drumnadrochit

This photograph from around the 1870s shows the main street in Drumnadrochit. 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
