Rural landscapes: the castle and the brooding landscape


Of course, I would have preferred sunny conditions to capture this epic castle, which is one of the most popular castles in Scotland. But I think I did okay to make the brooding conditions quite compelling.
According to Wikipedia, the ruins you see here date from between the 13th and 16th centuries. The site came under government care in 1911. Here’s another part of the castle site:

One thought on “Rural landscapes: the castle and the brooding landscape

  1. I knew this was Urquhart the second I saw it and it made me smile. This was such a nice little castle to come across as we meandered our way around Scotland. Thanks for the memories!
