Caisteal na Sròine (Scottish Gaelic ) ♡♡♡♡♡ Urquhart Castle located on the shores of Loch Ness on the rocky promontory of Strone Point. The castle dates back to the 13th century; built by Alan Durward, son-in-law of King Alexander II. It became a strong-hold of Robert de Brus (the Bruce ) in 1307. During the Wars of Scottish Independence, it is recorded as being one of only five castles in Scotland held by Scots in the 1330s. In 1342, David II, King of the Scots and last male of the House of Bruce, spent the summer at Urquhart, the only king to have stayed there. The castle met its end in 1692, when English forces blew it up to thwart the Jacobites, more than fifty years before the Battle of Culloden. . ☆☆☆☆☆ #drumnadrochit #highlands #scotland #graduateschool #mastersdegreehereicome #ishouldreallybestudying #onlyliveonce 🤷♀️
