At Drumnadrochit is the "Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition" which examines the natural history and legend of Loch Ness. Boat cruises operate from various locations on the loch shore, giving visitors the chance to look for the "monster". Urquhart Castle is located on the western shore, 1 mile (1.6 km) east of Drumnadrochit. Lighthouses are located at Lochend (Bona Lighthouse) and Fort Augustus.
1845. Urquhart woman, by R.R. McIan, in "The Clans of the Scottish Highlands." A woman would pleat the arisaid just like the man pleated his plaid. She would then fix it around her waist with a belt and wrap the spare material around her shoulders and fix it with a pin in the front. There was usually enough material left to form a hood that could be pulled up in bad weather. The arisaid was warm and comfortable for the woman, and for a baby carried in it.
