While in Scotland for Mario's Winter Break - in addition to exploring the Loch Ness - we also visited several Castles. Urquhart Castle was once one of Scotland’s largest Castles, however after surviving many conflicts during its 500 years as a medieval fortress, the last of the government troops during the Jacobite Risings blew up the Castle when they left. Urquhart’s iconic ruins remain giving a glimpse into what it was like during Medieval Times as well as offering a glorious view of Loch Ness. We spent a beautiful sunny afternoon exploring the ruins of what Mario called "a Very Old Castle" and it's grounds where Mario had plenty of room to run with his stick ropes. Mario also loved seeing the full-sized, working trebuchet, stone-throwing machine, or catapult as he calls it - just like Angry Birds - very Cool!
