Loch Ness is huge! We thought we saw the monster on the way to the castle. See if you can find it in the pictures. It was windy and cold and at Urquhart Castle we met a Highlander with lots of tartan who showed us how to use the sword, a musket, a pistol, a shield and a dagger (a Dirk). He also told us that the soldiers grew sideburns to protect their faces against the gunpowder flash when the muskets were fired. The castle had seen lots of battles and was eventually blown up. It looked amazing against the loch.
We did a Nessie workshop making paper Nessie monsters. Some floated and some were stuck in the sand. Let us know which ones you liked the best?
