Loch Ness cruise & Urquhart Castle
Well as some know, I recently met my penpal Sandra from Sweden. She came to Scotland for a week to stay with a friend of hers, so as we were quite close, we decided to meet. We got on really well, and Sandra loved Scotland although she said it was VERY different to Sweden. She says the people are friendlier in Scotland, but its colder!
Anyway, we went on a cruise of Loch Ness, which was 30mins down the loch to Urquhart Castle, then 1 hour there, then 30mins back on the boat. It was good All the journey to where the boat left it had been raining, but just as we got there, it stopped! Then as we got to the castle, the clouds started clearing and we got some blue sky. We were quite lucky! Anyway, on to the pics.
We had to go in a walkway under the road, and above it, there was a Nessie!

This was the Jacobite Legend, which wasn't our boat, just parked there, but of course, I did need a photo! The other side pier is where we got our boat from.
