We had lunch here then headed back to civilization as the rain clouds started to roll in. We hit the rain on our way back towards Loch Ness, which made for a difficult decision when it came to the next castle...

|The path to the monument was apparently "Kevin's Way". Good to know.|
Hopefully, Kevin didn't mind us trespassing.
|You beautiful snow covered mountain, you.|
