Despite being in ruins the castle is well worth the trip!. Primarily because the visit seemed very well organized, with lots of interesting information about the history of the castle, and its previous inhabitants, and secondly because you are in the Loch Ness area, and .... who has never believed in the legend?
Suidhe Viewpoint is an observation point located on the main road B862. It stands at an altitude of 393 m above sea level, and offers a breathtaking view of the lakes and valleys of the Scottish glens. You are sure to be captivated by the green of the land and the blue of the sky, so don't miss a stop here! I advise you to take a long look across the landscape then close your eyes and enjoy a deep breath of fresh air!
Bordering Loch Ness, the charming village of Drumadrochit is the main starting point for hikers and cyclists who want to search for the monster! The town itself is known for its two (somewhat superficial) museums, which are based around goshawks and the legendary monster of Nessy. Buses regularly connect it to Inverness and Urquart Castle. I highly recommend taking the bus to Drumadrochit then continuing on foot to the castle by taking one of the many trails along the lake.
