      Planning for your holiday expenses                

Urquhart Castle, on Fascinating Loch Ness, the most visited ancient monument in Scotland, is often represented in a gloomy, misty atmosphere...
However this is how you'll see it when visiting the site in Summer : a cheerful, bright and colourful landscape, here painted from a photograph taken in May, in the golden yellow light of masses of brilliant brooms in full bloom...

"Come by the Hills" : a traditional Scottish song.  
Come by the hills to a land where fancy is free
And stand where the peaks meet the sky and the lochs reach the sea
Where the rivers run clear and the bracken is gold in the sun
And the cares of tomorrow must wait 'til this day is done.

Come by the hills to the land where life is a song
And sing while the birds fill the air with their joy all day long
Where the trees sway in time and even the wind sings in tune
And the cares of tomorrow can wait 'til this day is done.
Come by the hills to a land where legend remains
Where stories of old stir the heart and may yet come again
Where our past has been lost and the future has still to be won
And the cares of tomorrow must wait 'til this day is done.
