Drumnandrochit Appeal

It may sound like a savage call from Tarzan in the far away African jungle. But it isn't! Actually, it is a strange, small, European but, at the same time, exotic village in Scotland.
Situated at the very shore of Loch Ness, you'll know you're there because a giant sculpture of Nessie welcomes the visitor.

The name of the village is almost as big as the Loch Ness Monster, but don't let yourself be fooled by it. It is the tiniest place I've been to... EVER!

You can just see a couple of houses and a Bank of Scotland office, which only opens twice a week and has no ATM. Great when you arrive just when it's just closed and you have no cash! Then, it's time for you to hitchhach back to Inverness, the closest city, where you can get some money and go back to Drumnandrochit.
There, at about 2 miles' distance, there is a hostel just next to the lake.
It's not luxurious, but the scenery is fantastic! And it's just five minutes' walk from Urquarth Castle (Nessie's home).
You can enjoy the sunset there and, luckily, spot  the monster back to the hostel.

  1. Hitchhach??
    Spot the monster back to the hostel.

    1. As for the first one, I meant 'hitchhike'.
      The second one should be ' you can spot the monster on your way back to the hostel'.
