Once one of Scotland’s largest castles, Urquhart saw great conflict during its 500 years as a medieval fortress. Control of the castle passed back and forth between the Scots and English during the Wars of Independence. The power struggles continued, as the Lords of the Isles regularly raided both castle and glen up until the 1500s.

No spotting of Nessy today (she had obviously double booked herself today and couldn’t make our catch up) but still had so much love for Loch Ness. Much bigger than and more beautiful than I was expecting #lochness#lochnessmonster
Day 6 of my week showing you different kinds of sustainability in Loch Ness Knitting.
This is my current basket of scrap yarn. Even the smallest bits of yarn and fabric can be used and reused. Yarn scraps are handy as life lines in complex knitting, test yarn for new stitches and patterns, spots of colour in stranded knitting.
Many of my patterns for sale on Ravelry encourage you to use up a small amount of leftover scarp yarn instead of buying new. So if you’re looking for some stash busting ideas check me out.
Let's look at another famous Scottish castle. This time we are heading to the Loch Ness where we are going to visit the Urquhart Castle. This is a January photo from late afternoon, just before the sun completely disappeared behind the horizon. How about you? What is your favourite Scottish Castle?
